My relation towards my brother isn't that fine. I mean not a single day would pass that we won't argue. It's like an everyday routine,even a small detail would turn into a big deal. And there would be a time when I'd reach my limit I would curse him though I am aware that it's good and a sin against God. But on the contrary, inspite all this thing I know in my heart that we do love each other It's just that our day won't be complete without agruing. I was just wonderin' are all siblings like ours? Have you experienced the same thing?

I have an older brother and a younger sister, six years each way! We are all very close now. Growing up my brother and I were very close. In fact lots of people thought we were twins. My sister is the baby and wasn't close to my brother until we all got much older. Her and I got close when she was a teen. My mother would have never tolerated us fighting or arguing. We were taught to love on another, and I am glad Mom insisted on that now but back when we were children it was hard and not very well received.

We were also told to love one another and our parents never failed to explain that to us maybe it's just because we're not that much mature now when the time comes that we'll get married maybe at that time we'll not argue anymore 'coz we're living already in a diff'rent house.lol! Anyway thank you! God bless!

before when i was single me and my youngest brother, 6th bro argue a lot, even in a small things it just started, after a few hour we reconciled again. But the time past and both of us got married if we remember those days we just laughed about it... maybe it just because we don't have matured mind...now we even more closer as time goes by...

oh yeah, Now I am much convinced that the reason why we argue alot it's because we're not yet mature enough. thank you for the response! Have a nice day! God bless!

I am very close with my siblings. There are five of us and we all get along great. Sure, there are times we disagree but we would do anything for each other and for each other's spouse as well.

I used to feel that way toward my brother. I still do sometimes. But I try my best to keep the peace sometimes. He can't help it if he is the "perfect" one. Oh well.

I am close to my 2 brothers as they are to me. I'm the only one they've got hehe. Siblings do argue and quarrel that's normal when we are still small but if there's still quarreling and not speaking to each other when you are older and wiser that's a problem anymore. Are we still fixated on childhood rivalry? We need to grow up and do away with pride. Arguing over issues (without hurting) exercises our mental capacity and it's nice to hear different sides of a story as long as after that things would be back to normal.

I have a brother who is 8 years younger than me. I was very happy when my mother told me that she was pregnant, because I really wanted a brother or a sister. My brother and I spent a lot of time together when we were children, we had many arguments, but we also had a lot of fun together. There is a big age different between us, but we still enjoyed playing together, and we often created our own games. When we got older we listened to music together and watched films together. We are both adults now, and we live in different parts of the country. We still get along really well, but my brother is very busy, and we don't meet that often.

I have an brother (5 years older) and a sister (1 year older). I was always very close to my sister since we are very close in age and we have really similar interests. My brother and I used to have problems since I never wanted to play the games or watch the movies he wanted to and vice versa. But, now that we're older (I'm 25, he's 30), we are a lot closer even though we don't live near each other. We no longer fight or anything when visit each other. Sibling dynamics are all so unique, and it definitely changes over time. I think it's great that, even though you two argue a lot, you still know you love each other!
