I am 17 years older than my half brother. The diference in age is sometimes weird. Hes only 9 years old! But I love him dearly. Does anyone else have a large age difference between you adn your siblings? Or are you a mom who had kids far apart? Tell me about it!

my lil brother is 6 years younger then me. he's now 17 years old. for me it was never a problem and i think he is very happy to have a big sister, because he learned a lot from me. i was sometimes like a mother for him hehe. ok he became an uncle when he was 12 years old, but he is a awesome uncle =).

That's great you are blessed to have a sibling because life without brothers and sisters is a lonely one.My neighbour has given birth to twin daughters an year ago.She has a son who is already 18 years old.when I see them play it is really nice .He holds both of them together and takes them out for a walk.They are unseperable.

I never felt lonely without siblings. I didnt know the difference. I had already moved out of my mothers house before she was even pregnant with him. Now I am glad to have him because I couldnt imagine it any other way. HE is soooo funny and great with my kids. Thanks for your comment!

im the youngest in the family. i have a sister and 3 brothers. the age difference between the 4 of them is not big but the age difference between me and them are big. my oldest brother is 16 years older than me. big difference huh? and the youngest older brother is 6 years older than me. we get along fine despite the big age gap. however, they treated me like a baby most of the times.

I am 18 and my oldest sister is 21, but we both have a half sister who is three years old. Which puts me being 15 years older then her and my older sister 18 years older. It is sad sometimes because I took care of her alot from the time she was six months old till now and whenever I go see her (she lives with her mother) and tell her I have to go, or go get her then take her back home she gets soooo mad at me she wont tell me that she loves me and she wont say bye either.

My older brother (half) is 39, and I am 26.. When we were younger the age difference was hard - but now that we both are adults we have a great connection.. I also have a brother who is 3 years younger than me =)

I know of siblings who have long age gaps. My cousin brian is now married at age 25 and has a 14 year old brother.. I also have a friend who's already 22 and has a 7 year old brother..
