    Default Is the usage correct

    Don't let distances come between us.

    Is the sentence correct or should it be:

    Don't let distance come between us.


    AND WHY?

    Default Re: Is the usage correct

    Don't let distance come between us is the correct form.

    This is because distance is a noncount noun so it doesn't have a plural.
