A study of coupling between finite number of general-shaped grooves in electromagnetic plane-wave scattering problem is presented. The formulation for a single groove  is extended to two grooves. The importance of inclusion of coupling interaction between two grooves in scattering analysis is presented and its dependence on the grooves separation distance and the angle of incident of the electromagnetic field is demonstrated quantitatively. For larger angle of incident and smaller separation distance between grooves indicate larger discrepancy between between simulation results with and without inclusion of the coupling effects. Although the results presented here considers two grooves, the formulation can be extended to arbitrary number of grooves.
