In relational databases A table can have at most one primary key. However,
you are not required to have a primary key, so I would just have the two
foreign keys in the table PEOPLEGROUPS.

Subject : [NOVICE] Primary and Foreign Key?
I have the following related tables:
What is the CORRECT way (in Postgres) to define the PEOPLEGROUPS table so
that it has both the double primary key AND still acts as a foreign key for
people.peopleid and groups.groupid? Can i specify both or is this not
necessary? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
