My birth family has always been there for me and I for them, I have one sister, who is 2 years younger than me. My wife's family I think are close to0 each other, but the language they use when casually talking is a bit too much for me. Granted, I am not innocent with words, but I think my language has gotten worse since having an on-going relationship with them. Sometimes their language is just outright mean.

Hello There. I have a close relationship with my family especially with my mom and siblings. I have been through the toughest times and I can say that they are there to just support me. They may not be the type who will really show your support or consolidate you but through their actions, I know that they understand me. With money, we have money problems as well.. but we still help each other to resolve it. Right now, I am happy that my sister is going to graduate from college this year. I hope she gets a good job. And next year my brother will... lolz. I love my mother the most to be honest since she is always here for us and she has been the bread winner for how many years now. I respect her and one of the reason why I want to be successful and earn money is for me to give my mom a good home and show her that we can take care of her no matter what! It is really nice that you love your family. That is great! Thank you for the discussions. Happy Mylotting and have a great day! Cheers!

My family is there for me no matter what. When i thought i was pregnant, instead of freaking out and kicking me out (im 18; this happened when i was 17) they supported me and said I would keep it and they would help me through it all. Luckily it was a false alarm though. My family DOES have very little money & we do our best to help eachother out and there is always mutual respect between us all- no matter the situation. I dont think i have a favorite relative.. lol. The ones i am closest to are my cousin Hanna and my aunt Onelia and my grandpa

We are very close in my family. We're there for each other in good times and bad, and we enjoy each others company. I can truly say they are my best friends.

I am the second child in the brood of four children. I have an older sister and two younger brothers. I would say that we are brought up to be always there for each other. We know that we have each other no matter what. This is not saying that we don't fight at all. We do. But then at the end of the day, we know that whatever it is that we fought about, it wouldn't surpass the fact that we are of ONE blood.

We are 2 sisters in the family and I am the eldest. My sister has 4 children (2 lovely girls and 2 good looking boys), while I have only one charming lady. She's now 15 years old. Me and my sister always help each other in every ways, like what our father has told us to never quarrel but always have a give and take relationship. My father just passed away that's why we became more intimate with each other especially that we have a mother to support to. Right now, even my daughter and her cousins are very much intact with each other. They share their stuffs and everything and they love to share their secrets with each other.
