    They are sisters with each other.

    Hi,
    Let's suppose that there are two girls and they are sisters (twins).

    They are sisters.
    They are sisters with each other.
    They are sisters together.

    How should I say the above blue sentences? Are they acceptable?

    Re: They are sisters with each other.

    Only the first is correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: They are sisters with each other.

    If you're desperate to use each other, try this:
    They are sisters to each other.

    More natural in this context would be this:
    They are like sisters to each other.

    But above all, the one that is absolutely sufficient is this, as already pointed out by emsr2d2:
    They are sisters.

    Re: They are sisters with each other.

    Bear in mind that "They are like sisters to each other" means they are not actually blood relatives. They simply have a bond/friendship which other people equate to that enjoyed by actual sisters.
