The Painlevé analysis has been performed for integrability of an example of two coupled equations taken from the field of nonlinear fiber optics. This is a generic system of highly nonlinear differential equations which describes the phenomena in nonlinear birefringence. In particular, the Painlevé test uncovers the generic non-integrable nature of the partial differential system such as the computed Fuchs indices. Last but not the least, the analysis performed so far will lay a solid foundation for further investigation of the closed form solutions. Copyright © 2018 Tat Leung Yee.
