So the weight isn’t all on one side of the curtain pole making it unstable.

It’s more aesthetically pleasing when the curtains are tied up, essentially framing the view.

You can peak through the middle and look directly out the window if you need too.

Curtain panels are normally sold in pairs because as the sun travels throughout the day you may close or open a panel to block or allow sunshine in

Also it is a good aesthetic to have balance, one panel draped open doesn’t quite feel right. Two panels both drawn back and swooping is pleasing to the eye

Two curtains can block light more fully than a single curtain while also being lighter. On large windows a single curtain can be cumbersome so splitting the weight can help
