Why do most brother and sister relationship last longer than most husband and wife relationship?
Why do brothers and sisters find it easier to make up after a misunderstanding than most husband and wife? Is it because much is expected from a partner than from a relation?
Ultimately it's because most people believe family (is) family.
There's a sense of obligation to love, accept, or at least tolerate one another because genetically you're "stuck" with one another.
Where as boyfriends/girlfriends/husbands/wives are "optional" relationships. Your mother/father/brother/sister are acts of fate.
Each of us gets to (choose) our own friends, lovers, and spouse.
The more "options" one has the less crap they will tolerate!
If your mate betrays you there isn't the pressure to "make nice" at a family reunion or holiday gathering unless you have children.
In many cases if people weren't related they wouldn't be friends!
I think it's simply the shared history. Good or bad, the history you share with a sibling is like no other and even if you move away and live your adult lives miles and miles apart that history will always affect how you interact.

In India and Pakistan, husbands have close and lovely relations with their sister-in-laws (sister of wife). A younger sister in law is known as a half wife. This relation is accepted by the society.What about sister-in-laws in western countries?
