    Re: because both is a pronoun

    'your' is a possessive pronoun and so, what noun/thing/object/ is it owning - a 'both'? Where can I buy a 'both' so I can say, "This is my both and you can't borrow it."

    'you're' is a contraction for 'you are', as in, 'You are in this group." "You are both in this group."

    Only 'you're' can be used.
