A slight exaggeration, albeit close to reality. Missionary companions do not accompany each other to the bathroom, invade private spaces such as sleeping in the same bed, etc. Companionships rarely stay intact for more than several months, as missionaries are constantly rotated in and out of the assigned mission area, requiring frequent re-assignment to new companions.
Companions are charged to watch out for one another, stay together, and protect one another. They also testify as witnesses of each other’s belief and teaching, when moved to do so. Some of my very closest friendships are with my mission companions, dating back from more than 30 years ago. They are terrific men, and I’m a better person for having served closely alongside each one of them.

Please do not think that two missionaries are joined at the hip. David did a fine job of explaining.
Check out the New Testament.

Words of two or three witnesses establish truth.
