In this paper, we prove the existence and uniqueness of a new Meir-Keeler type coupled fixed point theorem for two mappings and on a partially ordered partial metric space. We present an application to illustrate our obtained results. Further, we remark that the metric case of our results proved recently in Gordji et al. (2012) have gaps. Therefore, our results revise and generalize some of those presented in Gordji et al. (2012).
