Preposition pour

When using the preposition pour. In this sentence pour nous deux, Marianne et moi. Why does it mean for both of us I know pour means for but I don't know why deux means both.


Thanks

It’s not necessarily a direct translation which might be closer to “for us two”, but more in keeping with English usage - “for us two”, “for the two of us”, “for both of us” or even “for us both” - take your pick as to which you think sounds better/more natural in English.
