Try the TableSpacing option:

In[6]:= pairs = Table[Random[], {5}, {2}];

In[7]:= OutputForm[TableForm[pairs, TableSpacing -> {0, 5}]] >> "file"

In[8]:= !!file

0.915618     0.278768
0.466052     0.441966
0.253975     0.634225
0.263516     0.785352

Alternatively, Write, WriteString, and other formatting functions can
be used to accomplish the same thing.
