Do you get along with your brothers and sisters?

I only have one sister. She and I get along great, but we don't get to see each other that often, because it is a 10-hour drive from where I live to where she lives. We do get to talk on the phone a little more these days, though, which is nice. What about you guys? how is your relationship with your siblings.

Yes I do. I wouldn't say we are best of friends but we get along. One of my sister's husband is one of my best friends and my wife and my sister are very close. We all have kids around the same age so that is nice. We have lots of birthday parties, and picnics on The 4th of July, and Memorial Day and Labor Day, and sometimes we will all just hang out for the heck of it. We bicker now and then, but for the most part we get along.

We get along great. We talk to each other daily and see each other at least a couple of times during the week. We've had our moments of disagrements during the course of the years but even if we get a little "tiffed" at each other, I don't think we have ever not spoken for more than 2-3 days. If we don't talk to each other, we have noone else to argue with! LOL

I try to get along with my brother. Like I've said, he is the "perfect one". But, it is okay now. I try to keep the peace. :)

I have one sister and I wouldn't trade for her any other. Now if you would of asked me that when we were teenagers it would of been a total different answer, but she is truelly like my best friend now, we actually live in the same town and we both take Thursdays off to hang out or at least do lunch. I know living far from loved ones is hard, but remember you are only a phone call away.

I dont have a brother, buy my brother in law has been like a brother to me since I was a kid. My sister is 9 years older than me, and she got married when I was still in grade school. My brother in law has always been good to me and has helped me out on more than one occasion. I guess he is about the closest thing I have to a brother. I like hanging out with him when I get to see them.

I have a younger brother. I think we get well with each other. There were days when we were young we used to fight with each other and had different opinions. Now we are getting along with each other. I think it is great to get along with the siblings because most of the times they will be there when we needed the most.

I only have one sibling and it's a brother. When we were young we don't get along well. But as time passes and we become more mature, we have learned to respect each other. It does not mean that we don't fight anymore, but at least we know deep in our hearts that we love each other and we only have each other.

I only have one sister, and the drive between us is 2 days, and that's if you push it, we live 1600 miles apart, and have only seen each other twice since I moved 3 years ago. We do get along great, and stay in touch with phone calls, several times a week. And we send cards and letters through snail mail too.

I have one older brother who lives about 20 minutes from us. We get along fine but don't see each other very often. We talk once in awhile on the phone. Our work schedules are so different so he is off work when I am working and I am off work when he is working. We get together all the major holidays and have a good time with our families.

I have two younger siblings, a sister who's 4 years younger and a brother who's 11 years younger. When my sister and i were smaller, we used to fight a lot! were like cats and dogs, complete opposites and don't really see eye to eye, but as we grow older, we tend to stick together and now that she's married with two baby boys, i think our relationship is way better now. and somehow were much closer now. my brother is a different story because in some ways we are more alike, and his being overly playful and babied goes to his head and thats were conflict usually arise but thats merely temporary coz he cant stand me being mad or angry at him, I guess thats him being a kid and the baby of the family. personally I think as siblings grow older, they develop a better sense of understanding each other no matter how different they claim each other to be. and somehow as siblings grow older, they develop a sense of sticking together specially in difficult situations, thus proving that blood really is thicker than water. :)

I started with 4 of each(now down to 3 of each) and I think/hope we all believe that family comes first.I have 3 sisters and 1 brother within a 2 hour drive and I see them all as much as possible.I work with one of them in the business she and her husband run.The only 2 not in this area are about 8 hours away and they share a place with my brother's family.I know I would do anything for any of my family and hope they would do the same.
