Well, last night my girlfriend suppose cook for her whole family, and I was there. Her younger sister was suppose to help too, but she was always on her cellphone chatting with friends of her. I guess the atmosphere was a bit intense. So my girlfriend sent her to get some groceries from the nearby store. I guess her sister wasn't pay attention to she wants, she got a couple of items wrong, and they were start fighting verbally. Her mom come on over and interfere. My girlfriend ending up walk away from the house. Me and her both dine out in some Chinese restaurant, and the food wasn't that great at all. For me, it was a small problem, and they both shouldn't fight at all. But I don't want to interfere, otherwise, it might backfired on me. So, how often do you fight with your siblings?

Sibling fights between me and my sister always fight because of grudges. So maybe last month she let me down, so when I'm meant to help her I don't put my all into it. &&then when she calls me on it, I'll reply with "well you're not that helpful" and throw what she did back in my face, haha. but now we're older we've grown out of it. how old is your girlfriend and her sister?

I don't really want to involve in their help. My girlfriend is about 24, and her sister will be 18 next year. They fight sometimes, and they were so close after the fights. I just don't understand sometimes. Those are no big - deal kind of stuff.

I think its the kind of thing you'll have to put up with. My sister & I get touchy when people try to intervene with our arguments, normally because we know we'll sort it out and be close afterwards, and other people might not understand/drag it out past what it was.

Not now but we used to fight a lot in our childhood. Me and my sister always used to fight for very small reasons and i still fondly remember all those fights which I can never forget. There were too many silly and funny instances where we start with a fight. But when i remember all those things now, its nostalgia that engulfs me and I really miss those good olden days. Thanks for posting this discussion and hats off to you. Have a great day in Mylot. Cheers:

well small incidences like this are very common in our household. me and my sister absolutely fight over trivial issues without fail but are quick to patch up too.Infact we miss eachother most for our arguments than anything else.such is our chemistry.

So, you are not living with your sister any longer? My sister too, she shouldn't fight with her last night. She didn't live with her sister, and they should treasure the moment they were together. I just couldn't help but stay away from those fights.

not even once. but my big brother and my eldest sister argue most of the time. it always has something to do with my brother's vices. as the eldest, of course my sister would always catch his attention and the moment he answered back, my sis will start nagging! but it never come to a point that they hit each other coz normally, my brother will just walk out if he runs out of reasons. happy new year clorissa123

Hi, clorissa123. I am very sorry to hear about this. I had a fight with my younger sister in April of this year. And it was not a nice fight. She stopped speaking to me ever since we fought. I was basically trying to tell her something for her own good. And she got mad at me because she felt like a child. I don't like fighting with my sister. When you say something to her she takes it to heart and she hold a long grudge. I say it like this, she will either get over it or let it fester to an issue.

im the oldest and i have 3 siblings. two sister and only one boy the youngest. i have 6 years gap to my sister next to me. so because of the big age gap i rule like a mom and act like a mom also to them, when they we're young they fought a lot well i think that is normal because they we're kids that time. im 28 now, next is 22, 21 then 18. sometimes we still have misunderstanding but i see to it that it wont take long, sometimes it just a petty quarrel. if there's a big issue involve i have to be in the middle so that it will be solve. happy new year to you and to your girlfriend.

we used to fight when we were just kids but after sometimes it all ended and we became adults. Now we can understand that fighting is nothing but loss for ourselves, indeed we love each other more than before.

Yeah, we do. And then we will always get back at being peaceful with one another again the next time. I don't really fight that often with my siblings because I believe that peace and order are always needed in any given situation. But sometimes the squabbling can be fun because later we would all make up for loss time and just chill together; amazing.

Never. If we ever do have a disagreement we just get over with calmly and quickly we dont let arguments fester. We almost never even have a disagreement in the first place. We get a long pretty well and really did not even fight that much as kids, not that we never ever fought but it was very rare. Life is too short to fight with the one's you love.

When my brother and I were younger we had many arguments. When we were children we were fighting about the toys, and when we got older we were fightning about the computer and the internet We often disagreed, but we also enjoyed spending time together, and we have done many different kinds of things together. As adult we have travelled together etc and we had a really good time. We don't fight anymore. We like to joke and tease eachtother just for fun, but we haven't had an argument for years.

Hi Colin my dear, gosh Clorissa is quite a bit younger than you isn't she. It can't have been very nice for her to have to cook for the whole of her family and then eat not very good food with you at the Chinese restaurant which was kind enough to stay open for you so late. I don't have any siblings to fight with Colin but I imagine it must just all be a bit of fun between them.

we always do..when i was in my teens me and our eldest sister used to fight everyday, she wants me to do the dishes every after dinner. some times i did as what she told, but some times i dont.I think things like this is normal in our household..but now we are both married and living in different house so we haven't fight about doing dishes anymore. ha ha. as for your gf hmmm maybe she had lost her patience, she's older than the other one so she must understand. it's not BIG deal anyway.
