What is your relationship with your sibling(s) like?

My brother and I are pretty much indifferent to each other.
 
There are days where my brother and I are best friends but eventually he does something to irritate me and we get in nasty arguments. We used to fight all the time when we were younger but we got closer as the years went by. Now he's my roomate. Which is a blessing and a curse.
 
My sister and I used to argue a lot, but since she had her kid, that's died down a lot.
 
I have an older sister and we get along great! People compare us sure but she's always been a very good friend. It's easier I think to have an older sister because you have someone looking out for you with that silly bro crap.
 
I have an older brother and sister, I don't have much of a relationship with either of them anymore.
 
I get along just fine with my little brother and sister. But there's not much of a relationship. My brother lives in Georgia and my sister lives in Florida, so there's that. We're very different in a lot of ways too. I've always been the weirdo artsy geeky atheist and the screw up. My brother is a jock and my sister is the good Christian valedictorian whose getting married the old fashioned way (I just put on a ring and said "she's my wife now." No proposal, no ceremony, no paperwork).
 
I have four sisters. Three older; one younger. Two of them have different mothers and one has a different father. I live with my full sister and my little sister. I have a love/hate relationship with my little sister (she's three). My full sister and I used to fight all the time, but now we get along great. I have a good enough relationship with my other sisters, I guess, but we rarely talk or see each other.
 
I have an older brother and a younger sister (both by a year) and get along with both of them pretty well. My brother and I get along pretty great most of the time but occasionally when we're tired or around each other too long we'll get into a fight.

My brother has a really short temper and it only takes a small spark to get him angry. I've learned to just let him "be right" most of the time and just ignore any debates with him.

My sister and I get along fine too. She can get a little annoying, dependent, and kinda dumb from time to time, but we rarely argue.

High school was different. I used to argue with my sister constantly because she was always trying to steal my car before she even had a learner's permit. I eventually had to buy "The Club" so I wouldn't have to worry about it. That was just part of a high school long phase of craziness for her.

For some reason though, my brother and sister don't get along too well with each other. Whenever the three of us are together it's pretty much inevitable that they'll get into a heated argument over something completely insignificant. And I always have to calm them down.

Last time I saw them both was to go see The Avengers, and we all had a great time with no fights that day. Which is probably one reason why I enjoyed the movie so much.

But at the end of the day, we love each other and are very close compared to some families. We're children of divorce and I think, in our case, that helped bond us together when we were going through custody battles as kids.

I have four sisters and life was hell growing up with that much estrogen in the house. We rarely got along, always fighting and yelling at each other. Now that we're all older we get along great. All of our fighting in the past was over minor **** most of the time. It never got to that point where you never want to see them again.
 
I have 3 other siblings all older than me & we've had our little arguments, but nothing serious to not see each other again.
 
My sister is probably my favorite person in the world.
 
I have only younger ones, two brothers and one sister. The sister and I do not get along at all, but my brothers and I do.
 
We get along well enough. We have our debates when we get together because she's more of a type A person and I like to be more casual with stuff, but it is what it is.
 
Both my brothers have been my best friends and my worst enemies at one point in our lives.
 
Love my older brother. Definitely look up to him.
 
I have a younger sister, and we get along better than other siblings we know.

We have a theory that the reason we spend so much time together is because we're both so desperately lonely, so I have no idea what will happen when one of us gets into a relationship!
 
When we were younger, we really knew how to piss each off so we used it to our advantages. I remember me and my one sister (five years older than me) got into a couple violent encounters with one another. With my eldest sister, (nine years older) she would just get mad and me and ground me haha. She was like a third parent - but one that I had no problem talking back to.

Now it's different. We've all got eachother's backs and we don't get into fights. Every once in a while one of them gets snappy, but I just ignore them for like a day (like I seriously don't even respond to them unless absolutely necessary) - which is easier now because we live about and hour away - and then we're good. I attribute it to PMS.
 
My brother is six years younger than me, and when we were kids we fought each others like brothers do, but rarely about something really serious. And I was of course the quite older one, so I always could hold him short, hehe. When he turned into a teen, I was glad to find out that it was possible to have more normal conversations with him. ( :wow: )

Since then we've always been good friends, ie when I moved from my hometown for studies during the early 90s we used to have these really long phone calls every week, and I always thought it was great when he came to visit me.

Now we live in the same city again, and although we always been quite different as persons in many ways (but I guess we have many important values in common), we have a great contact. We try to help each other out if there's some kinda problems, and I actually can't remember the last time we had a serious argument about something.

Tomorrow night we and my brothers' girlfriend are going to a party toghether, and I know we'll enjoy it together.

I consider myself quite lucky as I constantly hear some friends argue or have little contacts with their siblings.
 
My younger sister and I couldn't stand each other growing up. Now that we're older, both are married and each have children, we get along great. My wife and I spend a lot of time with my sister and husband and our kids absolutely love each other.

I had an eye widening moment when I initially read this, then I realized that I was dumb and you're not and I laughed at myself. Laughing at oneself is truly a joy of joys. No?
 
We get along enough to exchange the occasional "Whassup" email, but there is so much **** in the past that we've both basically moved on.
 
I'm the youngest of 4.All of my other siblings are like 8-10 years older than me.I get along with my 2 sisters well enough,but my Brother is very difficult to be around.He complains about everything and he thinks it's his way or you're wrong.He's a grouch.

We get along on and off,but sometimes it's best to avoid him.I remember we had a fight and we went 3 months without speaking to each other over a T-Shirt.This was when we both lived in the same house (It was awkward)We get along better now though.
 
My sister and I have a sort of cease fire going on. When we had to live together we hated each other. Now that we only see each other once or twice every few months we're fine. We get along well, I help her when needed he talk but every few weeks is all each of us can take before we start nitpicking each other.
