Incorrect spelling, explanation:
togeather, while it may make sense in the terms of pronunciation, is simply unnecessarily complicated in spelling. The etymology does not seem to apply here, too, as the word is created out of to gather, so there is no reason for the complicated diphthong ea to appear in the middle of the word.
Correct spelling, explanation: together is loosely connected to the verb to gather. It may be surprising, but over time the word underwent a lot of changes to make it easier to pronounce and simply to be more convenient. As of now, both the sound and the spelling are still relatively similar, so it is worth remembering it by that.
