Pairing off with 2 Pairs in 1 tank?

I have 2 pairs of clowns - 1 pair of pink skunks and 1 pair of onyx. The onyx are still pretty darn small, but the skunks are pretty big. Is having two pairs in the tank going to keep them from pairing off?

Everyone gets along fine right now.

While those are someone more peaceful clowns, I don't see this working out. As one of the two pairs starts to mate, they are going to because meaner, and odds are won't accept having another pair in the tank.

As my pair of pink skunks get closer to finally spawning, they have become a bit meaner toward any other fish near their anemone.
