Aggressive Blue Gourami

Hi Iím a pretty new fish mum!

Iíve just adopted a male+female 3 spot gourami and the male seems very aggressive towards the female. Itís a 22 gallon tank and itís just the two fish in there however itís quite tall and Iíve heard they prefer wider tanks.
Itís quite well planted, mostly amazon sword.
Is there anything I can do to make the female more comfortable?

Larger aquarium with more site breaks or separate them.

At least two*females*for every one*male. Also try not to mix the variant colour morphs ie flame, red and sky blue, keep the same together.
