Do you say
" Between her and I..."
Or
"Between her and me..."


Also
It seems to be they that did it.
or
It seems to be them that did it.

Let you and me go to the beach.

Between her and me...

It seems to be them that did it.

Let you and I go to the beach.

(I think)

The best tip for 'me/I' is to ask yourself whether it works if you kill the other person!

My husband and me went to the station = incorrect.

My husband and I went to the station = correct.

I think it’s let you and me go to the beach because you wouldn’t say let I go to the beach.
And when you say let’s that’s let US which is the ME equivalent of we.

You wouldn't say 'me go to the beach'

No but you would say ‘Let me go to the beach.’

Basically remove the other person and see if the sentence makes sense.

"Sarah and I are going to the beach" makes sense as "I am going to the beach". It doesn't make sense as "me is going to the beach" so it's not "Sarah are me are going to the beach".

"Would you like to go to the beach with Sarah and me?" Makes sense as "would you like to go to the beach with me?" It doesn't make sense as "would you like to go to the beach with I?" So it's not "would you like to go to the beach with Sarah and I?"
