This is a typical case of people misunderstanding simple Facebook features. This is not a special couples page. It's merely a Friendship Page, and Facebook provides one of these for every connection, whether they're a couple or not. These Friendship Pages are exactly the same as any other Friendship Page, including those between you and an acquaintance. The only difference is that people who are tagged as in a relationship (or one of the variants) can access the Friendship Page they share with that person by going to http://www.facebook.com/us
(at least, with the new version).
Friendship Pages only show content that people can see anyway if they look down each person's Timeline.
There is nothing wrong or bad about this at all. If you find it nauseating, just don't look at the page or stop sharing things on your partner's Timeline. If you don't want to see stuff you've shared with your partner, you have the option of not sharing things. You only have yourself to blame, not Facebook, as Facebook are only presenting the content that you've shared.
Further, this page ceases to be accessible when you are no longer on each other's Friends list.

Doesn't look anything like the pic in the OP to me
Facebook announced the new layout earlier this week (or late last week; I can't quite remember), and it is slowly rolling out to everyone

Exactly. This is no big deal. They simply took the option to "see friendship", which displays an almost identical to this to show your friendship between you and a friend, and tweaked it slightly.
This is basically functionality that has been there for a long time now. They just made that friendship special, and made a link to it http://facebook.com/us
I should have read the thread first. I see you beat me to it
