Propping up one another

What would happen if you separated these two?  They’d fall over.  That was my first impression when I saw them at the fair.  They were so into each other that they leaned against each other as they walked, stopping the other’s fall with a steady, friendly sideways block.   And their smiles were visible from far away.  They posed for me with the same affection and happiness.  Okay, so maybe they took it down a notch for the camera.  They’ve been together for about two months, they said.  They walked away when we finished our brief photo shoot, shoulder to shoulder, propping up one another.
