    carry

    Hi

    Does "carry each other" just mean that we have to "take care of each other" "help each other"

    thanks

    Also:
    Is there any difference between "We get to carry each other" and "We've got to carry each other"

    Re: carry

    Well, it can also mean that people literally carry each other (in turn) as they walk (through rivers, forest, bad terrain, etc.)

    "We've got to" = "we must"

    "We get to" = "we have the opportunity to"

    Re: carry

    On second thought, it seems to me "carry each other" can also mean "support each other". Maybe it's even better than "help each other"

    Re: carry

    Yes! Physical support is better than my example; and moral support is a perfect form of help in yours.
