Is your family close?
Are your family close knit or do you constantly bicker and fight and never agree?
We are close knit, but then again we seldom see each other – that may help. Seriously, we seldom disagree and when we do it is always resolved quickly.
I wish my parents and siblings got along better than they do. I work very hard at making sure my kids learn how to get along and resolve any conflict that may come about.
My family is close. There are members that tend to start arguments but we all love each other dearly. I try to have traditions esp for birthdays, holidays, etc. I think that is one of the best things to keep you close as a family. We are blessed to have a lake home and that brings the family to us which is awesome. You have to work at keeping adult children engaged in your life. I feel it so important to let your grandchildren know you well. Our generation has lost that closeness to our grandchildren. My son and Daughter -in -law are expecting but are 3 hours away. I know it will take about or atleast one visit a month for that little one to know us and bond with us as grandparents!
My family and I get along great. I am an only child but my extended family (aunts, uncles and cousins) are all close too. My daughters bicker over everything but they are young yet so it is normal stuff.
Every family has their disagreements and fights from time to time, but it is those families that can get through the fights and become even closer knowing one anothers views on different things. I have a close family that also have our disagreements, but we remain close.
just got off the phone with my mom, my brothers and my sister.
we all love each other and we say 'i love you' before we hang up because we all live in far away places.
are we close? physically no / relationship-wise yes
we fight alot but in the end we are very close and we love each other very much.
Between my mom and siblings and I, we don't get along very well, however when my dad passed away nine years ago. I was surprised at how well we all came together to support each other and work through all the estate issues. It showed me we are stronger than we think.
I'm the oldest of five and my family is very close. There are times when we don't get along or when we have miscommunications but we work it out pretty quickly and never hold grudges. Since my siblings and I are all adults now we have all become very close knit. I love it!!
my family is fairly broken up. I'm not close to them and my parents are divorced.
geographically no..they are in India..we in US..but otherwise yes...we are a close knit even though we argue and fight(thanks to verizon,skype and g talk!)
My family are always rowing. I don't get on with my mum or brother. x

I was born and raised in one area and then after getting married have lived most of my life far away from my siblings. It has been hard to keep the relationship going, although it really was never that close to begin with - how about yours?

What do you think of people who aren't very close to their parents?No hate or anything; it's just that we're indifferent to each other.

As an adult, are YOU on speaking terms with your siblings? Why/why not?

Why do some brothers and sisters get along well in some families, but not in most families?Getting along in the sense of having fun with each other, and not fighting each other, or simply being cold with each other. I have seen bros and sistrs who almost need no friends at all, they are friends...
