Do you see any correlation between people who got along very well with their siblings in childhood, and those who get along well with their spouses?
I love having someone else in the house, hanging out with my husband, sharing things, helping each other. Growing up I was very close with my sister also. Sure we fought at times, and other times I wanted to do my own thing, but overall I have good memories of playing together. With my husband it sometimes feels like a sibling relationship. Not the sex part obviously, but being together in the same house, being close friends, watching TV, making new concoctions to eat, sharing our new discoveries.
So, I wondered if people who had very difficult times in childhood getting along with siblings also have a tough time navigating a realtionship with a spouse?
Or, do you think how you interact with your spouse has much more to do with the example your parents set forth? How they interacted with each other?
Or, none of the above?
