      I have a dysfunctional family, a set of parents and one sister no brothers.  Dad recently past away. My family has always been separated, never really close.  Everyone has their own issues and nobody wants to talk. Everybody just wants to keep to themselves and live in their own world.

      I come from a pretty large family. There are 5 girls, no boys. Lots of arguing, fighting over the bathroom, and manicures. smile

      All in all we are close. Some are overly dramatic and dysfunctional, but we're family. smile

    Growing up I had two parents and two sisters.  I still have them of course, but being single means you are always kind of on your own in a way.  Some single people I know do not want to do things with their siblings families because they say it is "taging along" with someone else's family, but I enjoy spending time with my sister and her kids.

    I grew up a middle child.  I have a sister who is 13 years older and a brother 2 years younger.  My parents died 13 months apart in the early 80's.  I'd say we were the typical 60's - 70's family.

    I was the oldest. I have a younger brother 20, and a younger sister 18. smile My family makes the Osbournes look Amish. They are crazy and hilarious. Everyone who meets us says we should be on tv. My parents have been married for 22 years.

    International globetrotter one!

    Parents and brothers live in different countries and grandma in another continent. Husband comes from one country and my children were born in a different one!  Too much of a puzzle?

    I grew up the middle child with an older sister and younger brother, five years between each of us.   It was a traditional mother/father and three kids family, and we had lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins who added to the "family experience".  I was fortunate in having a strong, solid, family.  My parents weren't wealthy, but we had "everything".  I've tried to give my own three kids that same kind of sense of solidness.

    My mom was 40 when I was born and my dad was closer to 50. Bad thing was I barely even knew any of my grandparents, cousins were all much older than me, and aunts and uncles all passed before I even hit my 20's. My mom and dad are gone now, so it's just me my 3 kids!

    Lots of us - my parents, first marriage, to each other, going strong, my sisters, brother, two uncles, one aunt-in-law, one other half, one son, one brother-in-law.

    The above all tend to gather at Easter, Christmas and in the summer at my parents' house for a few days each time.

    I have one sister born the same year as me, my father who lives in Brisbane and the best thing of all is I made peace with my Mother a few weeks ago, who I thought did not care about me at all. It has been four years since we spoke. I went and saw her last week and hopefully this may be a new start for years missed.

      Absolutely fabulous blonde - I hope everything rights itself. Everyone deserves a great relationship with their mum/mom/ma smile

      Unfortunately I'm incredibly tired of my ill-spirited mother and prefer A)the distance and B)the fact that I'm out of her will.

    Loud Italian family. Mom and Dad (accents and all), one younger brother and sister. I'm the older sibling. We were all close in age. Our family is a cross between "Roseanne" and the "Sopranos". Lot's of fun! Our children are all close in age as well. Tight knit still - just the way I like it. We have each other's back at any given time. Consider myself very lucky :-)

    I can describe my family alliteratively- large, loud, loony, and loveable.

    I have no idea how I ended up with a "normal" family: one husband, one daughter, one son, one dog, one cat, a picket fence, music and dance lessons, and soccer games.

    (Oh, wait. But we're all sci-fi and comic book fans. There goes normality!)

    Eldest of 3, I have a younger sister and brother. My parents live in Malaysia.

    My father has 17, yes you read correctly, seventeen sibilings ~ 10 brothers and 7 sisters so I have 10 uncles and 7 aunts. (They didn't have TV during the days of my grandfather).

    Suffice to say, I have a huge number of cousins around 40 and hundreds of nephews and nieces (some of whom I've never met before) spread across the globe ~ Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, NZ, UK, Canada and US. I have 2 Irish aunts and some half Irish cousins and some half Dutch nephews and nieces. Let's not talk about organising family reunions!

    I am the oldest of 5 children.  My parents are still married.

    My wife and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary in June of this year.  We have 8 children ranging in age from 24 - 5.  We have 6 boys and 2 girls and they have kept us busy over those years!

    While ours may not be the "common" family today,... it works for us and we're VERY happy together.  smile

    I have a really tightly knit family.  My parents have been married for 40 years.  My father has 3 kids from a previous marriage, and I have a brother and sister.  My half brothers and sister have kids that are around my same age.  My family is huge and very dramatic.  Everyone is very close and it seems, at times, that everyone is in everyone else's business.  It is annoying sometimes, but most of the time it is very comforting to know that someone will always be there.
