I didn't. My brothers are 18, 17, 16, 14, and 12 years older than me.

Well we had our arguments as kids. Nothing major. We get along very well.

Now my brothers will fight with one another a lot. They used to share an apartment so tensions got high. :p They do a lot together though.

Yes! My brother and I were only 10 months apart and would fight over everything.

 Not really. Maybe if I had sisters, but I was the only girl. I have 5 brothers.

There are certainly more animosity between us than competition.  I feel it stems from our parents because they were too immature and/or clueless to know how to handle our normal, natural stages of childhood development.

No. My sister and I stuck together. Between a drunk dad and a mom who would work and ignore the issues with my dad, we had to stick together. Did we fight? Yea. But in the end, even now years later we stick by each other. I'm 28 and she's now 26 and we are best friends and sisters.

My brother and I are Irish twins. We rarely got along growing up. Now that we are adults we get along just fine.

I was raised an only child after my parents had raised other kids.  They were grown when I came along.  So while I didn't have to deal with sibling rivalry, I did have to deal with grown women being jealous and resentful of me because I was able to do more than they did growing up and have more than they had because 1) my parents no longer had a house full of kids to care for, only one and 2) my parents were later in life and had a better financial picture than when they had raised them.  In the end, I have absolutely nothing to do with the other "siblings" because they couldn't get over themselves and always treated me badly.  I don't need that and my husband and kids don't need to deal with that either.  So we don't.
