EACH OTHER (el uno al otro), ONE ANOTHER (el uno al otro)

We use the reciprocal pronouns to indicate that two people can carry out an action and get the consequences of that action at the same time. E.g.:

Peter and Mary kissed each other. (Peter y Mary se besaron el uno al otro)

In this example "each other" indicates that both people involved in the action of "kissing" got the result, kisses, at the same time. In other words, Peter kissed Mary and she got his kisses, and Mary kissed Peter and he got her kisses.
