We consider stationary soliton states in a birefringent optical fiber with two components locked in phase. Two values of the phase difference between the two components of the soliton states are studied: 0 and π/2. These cases allow us to find composite soliton states in a simple way. The bifurcation diagrams for the coupled soliton states in these two cases are constructed. The stability of these soliton states is examined also.
