When we were living under one  roof we siblings got on a like a house on fire.  We were the neighbours' envy  Much water has flown under the bridge since then.  Of the siblings I just cannot stick to two for whatever reason.  And to think that one of them and me were the best of friends once upon a time. 

It could be a disparity between living standards.  I am slightly better off and I assume that could be the reason. 

How close are you with your siblings?

That happens in every family! That is a natural sibling rivalry! Initially I used to take these things seriously.

Now at this age I don't take these things seriously any more! We are three brothers and one sister.

All the brothers are doing well in their respective professions.

My sister has always been an apple of my eyes! She used to be my partner in the Crime when we were Kids!

Today also we are just like friends and people feel strange the way we behave!

Often her kids say that we act like kids! We simply believe that age is just a number all that matter is your state of mind!

I am very close with my siblings. I have two elder sisters. I love both of them equally. They got married and settled in our native place. But still we share the same bond as before.

Well, I think that the modern world has lost this "glue" for the most part. If you want a relationship with a sibling you have to consciously work at it. Call the person, be interested, put effort into being  nice. I don't really have a good relationship with my sister, she lives in Las Vegas and I live in Jerusalem. We Facebook but that is about it.

I know the saying blood is thicker than water is true for most people. But for me, it is the fairness that matters. When my sibling has a quarrel with someone I look at the fairness and not because it is my sibling.

We are very closed with my siblings. We are helping each other in time of needs.

It is when one depends on each other then the relationship lasts. That is what I have noticed.  Also the second generation is more for their friends than family.

I do believe this phrase. There are ups and downs with my siblings but we are close to each other. We just end the relationship with our relatives.
