Compound prepositional objects

If I want to say ".... with you and your family", does "contigo..." really work?

"Me encantaba pasar tiempo contigo y tu familia." ???

Yes.

No puedes decir con ti o con tú.

Taking in account your signature laepelba, here you would say "Me encantaba pasar tiempo con vos y tu familia." I think is the only option lefting (creo que es la única opción que queda?)

Some corrections. Not all of Latin America uses el voseo. A mí me encanta vosear, pero son pocos los que lo saben por estos lares.

Conmigo
Contigo

¿Solamente a esas palabras se las unen, o hay otras?

Con + ella
Con + él

Thanks Rusty. Yes I know, with "here" I was referring to my country and I know that laepelba likes Uruguay, there it is used, and there are a lot of Argentinians living and travelling to Ur. with huge frequency (actually, I'm going there in less than a month), so I think it'll be usefull for her.

It's difficult to learn the "voseo"?
Ya sabés con quién practicar si querés.

No, no es difícil de aprender. Siempre me podés tratar de vos.


@Bob: consigo (used when sí is otherwise used as the prepositional object pronoun)

What in the world are you people talking about!? I thought that vosotros was never used in Latin America? I haven't really been learning it for that reason.

And I specifically do not want to say "you (all)" (in the second person plural), I specifically want to say "with you (singular) and your family". How does "vos" fit into that??

And what in the world is "voseo", I thought that the object pronoun for "vosotros" was "vos" (like "nosotros" and "nos").

What!?
