What are the uses of "Reach"?

Does it mean marriage? i.e He reached his beloved.

Does it mean to take someone somewhere? i.e He reached her to school.
Or
He had someone to reach her to school. (he asked someone else to take her to school)

Welcome to Using English.


"He reached his beloved" means that he was able to contact her.
Were you able to reach David? No, I called and called, but he never picked up.
I wasn't able to reach Claire at the office, but I finally got her on her cell.

There is no meaning related to "marriage" here.

The sentences about "reaching someone to school" don't make sense.

It can mean arrive/get to where someone is, but it cannot have any of the meanings you suggest.
