Hi,

Are the following correct and do they mean the same?
They are both totally unnatural.

Here are a few colloquial sentences:

He is going to the fair with her.
Bonnie is going to the fair as well as Clyde.
Not only is Rudy Mentary going to the fair, but his sister Ellie is going too.
Emma Nation and her brother Uri are going to the fair together.

The natural way to say that is "He and I are going."
