    There are 8 years between me and my older sister, which is pretty much fine and we get along well apart from when she gets all over protective as I'm her 'baby sister'. But then again, growing up it was like having an extra parent at times, and meant there was no need for a babysitter.

    My younger brother is 15, so there's 5 years between us, and there's just the two of us. When I have children I don't want there to be much of a gap between each one, but for there to be about 10 years between the oldest and the youngest..I've always liked the idea of the younger children having older ones to look up to.. or maybe I'm just odd lol, who knows.

    well the biggest age gap is between me and my little brother.
    I'm 16 and my brother is 6 years old but i will be 17 before he will be 7, so it's like 10/11 years. my sisters are 12 and one will be 15 on new years day.

    I come from a large family. I have 3 brothers and 4 sisters. I turn 18 in may and I am the eldest. My youngest sibling was born this feb, which means that there's an age gap of 17/18 years between us.

    My parents are only 19 years older than myself which got my thinking about the age gap between me and my brother. When he's my age I will almost be as old as my parents are now which is quite a scary thing. This got me thinking about what our relationship would be like. And I would love to hear what yours are like.

    What sort of age gap is there between you and your siblings? Are you the youngest? Is there more that 18 years between you? Whats your story?

    Is there anyone who has been in my situation and would like to tell me how it panned out for you?
    I have two brothers who are older than me; one by just over 16 years. I've nearly always felt like a complete baby during family situations but more recently - since being about 17 - I've got along with both my brothers, the other who is 13 years older than me, really well. We often meet up, go out drinking or, like recently, to a theme park. I have the added advantage of being female and therefore also being able to socialise with their wives/ fiances They both have kids now and it's pretty nice being a young aunty; the kids are so much more comfortable with me than the 'old people'

    I would never wana change anything

    I'm the oldest. My brother is two years younger than me, and my sister is two years younger than him. I think I'd hate it if I had a sibling who was a lot younger than me.

    Same-ish situation, dunno how it's panned out. I imagine you'll be used as a cash cow of some sorts.

    I'm 18 and my little sisters are 10, 4 and 6 months. I think it's better to have siblings closer in age really, cos even my oldest sister who is only 8 years younger than me, and I aren't that close. We never played together growing up so I always take on more of a babysitter/aunt role to my little sisters- and though I love them to bits, it's not the same as having a sister a few years older or younger than you that you can confide in.
