How often do you talk to your siblings?

I have family questions on the brain, I just spent the weekend at a baby shower for my brother's wife (they have been married a year and a half). I just had me thinking about family dynamics and such.

  • Every day with my sister normally and almost never with my brother. There is a big age gap (he is my half brother) and we just never where that close. I talk on Facebook once in a while but almost never call him.

  • I talk to my brother at least once a week. Even tho it may just be threw txting lol. He just got back from Kandahar not too long ago so it's really made us evaluate the relationship we had before and things have been so much better since.

  • Depends on which one... I have a sister that I grew up with, I talk to her once a month or so. And I have a brother that I talk to online from time to time but haven't spoke to on the phone or in person in 5 or 6 years... The rest of them I haven't seen in years and years... And there are even a few I've never met... My sister and I both know the other is there any time we need them, we may not be the "talk every day" types, but any time we need each other, we are always just a phone call away... Beyond that, I really don't know any of them enough to be close...

  • I haven't talked to my brother in many years. Families are oftentimes dysfunctional, and mine is one of them.

  • I try and call her at least once a week. We have an interesting love/hate kind of relationship. We're best friends and worst enemies at the same time.

  • As little as humanly possible. Since she gave birth to my first nephew though we talk more since she's the only way for me to get to him. I don't want to miss out on a relationship with the baby simply because I dislike my sister.
