Is this a male or female Gourami?

A few weeks ago I got a beautiful gourami and I don't know how to tell if it's male or female. It looks female but it could actually be male? I don't know and any help would be appreciated.

My guess is "Female". Your Gourami has a rounded dorsal fin and a rounded belly, typical of a female.

I second the female vote. Males have a much longer Dorsal fin and not such a fat belly.
