Seating Preference?

I did a couple of searches but didn't find this topic.

How do you and your spouse, partner, friend sit at a restaurant when there are just 2 diners?
My husband and I were out last night (having a very nice meal at a local Indian place) when a couple was seated behind us. They sat next to each other with their backs to us. Not across the table as we and I think every other couple in the place were doing.
So, the rest of the night they were half turned in their seats to speak to each other and I kind of felt like I was intruding based on the proximity of the table. When food was served they did turn into the table more to eat.

I can't quite see the advantage to this, I think I would have a kink in my neck by the end of the night.
Am I missing something?
