    Re: idiom

    Hmm, you could try "like peas in a pod." That refers to two people who are never apart, and in my experience is most commonly used to refer to two children who always play together. That's more of a similie than an idiom though. Try it in the sentence you want to use it, and I'll tell you whether it's appropriate.

    Not a teacher.

    I've always taken "like peas in a pod" to refer to looks.
    How about "soul mates". There's often no apparent reason for that.
