Mensagem: 

I refer to the suggestion:


"The secret in English when you have such a question is to drop one of the pronouns"


In practical terms:

 

 i) what does this secret involve &

 

ii) how has this secret been demonstrated by your post, in particular the following section:
"(2) "She went with my father and me"?
Sentence (2) is obviously correct, so "She went with my father and me" is correct too"

 

Observation: Surely if it were the case of something being "obviously correct", the question would not arise in the first place.
