Is the sentence grammatically correct?
It seems that the longer they stay together, the more similarly they will become.
The verb 'become' is a linking verb like 'to be' or 'to seem'. This means that what follows it should describe what precedes it. In other words, you need an adjective, not an adverb. For example, we say: 'She seems intelligent' (adjective) and not: 'She seems intelligently.' The verb 'become' acts in the same way. We say: 'I became more patient as I grew older' (adjective) and not: 'I became more patiently.'
