    Default "He went down the aisle with a rich lady." vs He walked down the aisle with a rich l

    My dear and respected teachers,
    1: "He went down the aisle with a rich lady." And "He walked down the aisle with a rich lady." Is it correct to say or I should remove "with a rich lady"?
    2: "Let's get started." Why is 'get' used?
    3: "Write the names of the days in a week." correct?

    1: If you remove "with a rich lady", there is not much point to the sentence, which is a slightly denigratory statement that he has married a rich woman, the implication being that if she had not been rich, he would not have married her.

    2: AskOxford: get [definition 5 in the list]

    3: it is fine.

    1. Also, walked along ... with
    2. you need 'get': it is an idiomatic expression
    Cambridge Dictionaries Online - Cambridge University Press -- 6.
    3. Write (down) the days of the week in sequence. Yours is clumsy and ambiguous.
