Meaning:

If two or more people, teams, institutions, etc are in the same boat, they share responsibilities and the joy for rewards or the blame for the failures or their actions as a group.

Origin:

Since ancient times, when the first boats were used, it has been well known that passengers travelling in a boat share the joy of the trip, the beauty of the view, the excitement of arriving to their destination, but they also share the same risks in case of an accident, an attack or whatever ordeal they might go through.

Example:

• When the best soccer player of the world was giving his speech while being acknowledged, he said some moving words that I still remember, “There is no –I- in the word team. This is not my very own achievement. It is the success of a fine group of individuals who have worked together to get this goal. For the good or the bad that may come our way, we are all in the same boat”.

    I leave a resplnse each time I especially enjoy a article on a bloog
    or I have something to add too the conversation. Usually
    it’s caused by the sincerness displayed in the article I read.
    And after this post In the Same Boat | dcentreenglish.

    I was moved enough to post a comment 🙂 I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be simply me or do some oof these responses come across as if they are written by brrain dead
    folks? 😛 And, if yoou are posting at additional social
    sites, I’d like to follow you. Would you make a list
    all of your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  2. i want a boyfriend says :

    These thoughts will cause another psychological trick to kick in
    and he will start missing you. He is going to come to realize you are doing
    well even without him. The good thing about beer is that it is pretty cheap, so
    pick up his favorite ale and put a big red bow on the carton.
