Do you really close with your siblings?

I come from a big family, 10 of us. I have 6 sisters and 3 brothers. It's fun. When I was a small kid, I always play and fight with them. Whenever I argue with my sisters, I will write a letter of apology to them, just to say "I am sorry!"; no matter whether I am right or wrong as I am the youngest in the family. And my sisters will come to me and hug me! It is a lot of fun, remembering my childhood time with my siblings. But now, all of us already married and have our own family. I feel a distance apart from them. We are still close as brother and sister but it isn't the same like before. We still have family gathering on weekend and that is the only time, we can talk, discuss, 'backstabbing' (he..he..he...) and gossiping about almost everything!

I am quite close with them especially the younger one as we share lots of problem or thoughts,when she had anything to discuss she'll call me for that as i am good at it. Even though we are married but still we keep contact and often have the reunion. We go fro shopping and eat outside at least once or twice a month. Right now my younger one is pregnant so sometimes she feels like having ice cream so i took her there quite often(by this i also get a chance to have my favorite ice cream)

That's common. I also close to all my sisters but really closer to one of them. I always tell my sisters whenever I have problem or just to share gossips and jokes with them.

As kids, my siblings and I weren't that close. My sister and I, especially, were very different so we argued constantly. My brother is quite a bit younger than I am so our relationship basically consisted of me taking care of him. Now though, we are much closer! After my younger sister went to college we started spending more time together and putting our differences aside. She is living with me now and I have spent a lot of my time over the last 2 years helping her through a medical crisis. My brother and I are also much closer. We are all going to get tattoos with a dove and our names symbolizing the fact that we want to always remain close no matter what differences we have or where life takes us. We come from a very dysfunctional family, so that is important to us.
