My mom was an identical twin. They were pushed into doing everything together all through their childhood and were not allowed to do their own things. Once they were adults, they argued, fought and when my aunt (mom's twin) died they were barely speaking. My aunt even went as far as to say it wasn't fair that she had cancer and my mom didn't.
My nieces are twins. They are being allowed to do their own things and actually one lives with each parent. (long story, but that's the way it is right now...their choice) When they are together, they are very close.
But those are the only experiences I personally have with twins.
