    They can envy who got married first & who is getting the attention with the wedding...or who is having a baby and getting attention with all of that. Or..who is doing well in their career, and things come easier for them...or how about WAY down the line...who is getting Mom & Dad's....(fill in the blank) when one of them passes away. People say that this all stops when you grow up..but chances are if someone is envious, it never will! We are all children in adult bodies, just going to work & throwing fits! haha.
