Agree can also be synonymous with consent. For example, you might say, “She agreed to go out with me.” You might say that; unfortunately, I don’t get to say it often because that’s just the way my life goes. I mostly sit at home babbling at my computer.

Agree might also be used to reflect a food’s effect on your health. For example an extra large helping of deep-fried lard topped with five extra-tart pickles and smothered in wasabi paste might not agree with you if you have a weak stomach. D’ya think?

The word agree is also used in discussions of grammar. For example, when you write a sentence their nouns and verbs should have agreed in number, person, gender and tense, unlike in this sentence.
