Siblings, how many? are you close to them?
Not any more!
Never had any siblings…wish I had!
Second answer - No
Originally 4 sisters and 3 brothers. there are now 3 sisters and 2 brothers left, not particularly close but keep in touch.
Yes and no is the answser to the OP.
Copied but modified from another thread:
The answers to both questions can be easily clarified. Some 20+ years’ ago, there was a big family problem, money was being taken from our mother. I was asked by her to sort it out, which to a degree I did, getting most of the money returned by the bank as my sibling did this by fraudulent transactions. She then ‘did a runner’ abroad with her almost ‘millionaire-on-paper’ boyfriend and nobody has ever seen her since, not even three of the four young people, her offspring, she also ‘dumped’ All in all a very distasteful thing to do, even worse was the fact had that money been wanted for any genuine reason, it would simply have been given to her, it did not need to be stolen. However, sometimes that’s family for you. This is far more common than people realise, so I was advised at the time.
Yes, one half sister,
We are 4 sisters - extremely close
We are not close…I was the odd one out.
One, a sister.
Close yes, but not so much in terms of distance … yet, because the plan is for a move in the future which will bring us closer in terms of physical distance too.
We trust one another completely; can tell each other anything; and rely upon each other.
We talk regularly too, and have been closer since childhood than during it.
Yes, two brothers and a sister. We have always been close.
I think that’s lovely, you are blessed to have that, imo.
I have a brother who is 8 years younger than me. Wouldn’t say we are close, I live in Devon, he lives in Yorkshire.
I love to hear that,…family are so important.
I would loved to have been close to my brothers, but sadly we ain’t.
That’s a shame Pauline
Yes, I’m the youngest of four girls. We used to all very close but now we are scattered from Perth.
- In Australia.
- In Newcastle.
- Just outside Dundee.
- North Coast.
No.My mother said that no one could be more perfect and they didn’t need anymore.
Two of my cousins I am very close to,we are virtually siblings.
I had two brothers . Lost one when I was a teenager.
Was I close? I was close to the one who passed and thought I was close to my other brother but found out differently.
Both parents have dementia and are in a nursing home. That’s the extend of my family. No aunts, uncles, cousins etc.
Not close distance wise either
Same as you, Mags.
