    Eacher other

    Hello,
    Is this sentence okay?:
    We can touch each others hands.
    I don't know if it's better than:
    We can touch our hands.

    The sense should be: I touch her hands and she touches my hands
    I believe #1 is better.

    Cheers!

    Re: Eacher other

    #1 is correct for what you want to express.
    #2 would suggest that you can touch your own hands

    Each other's hands (not each others, nor each others') would be more appropriate.
