What does a healthy relationship between grown adult siblings with families of their own look like? AND what is a close adult sibling relationship look like? I have two older brother with families of their own and my mother wants us to all be close, but I don't know what that looks like. I used to want to be closer to my oldest brother as everything his entire life was a big secret from my other brother and I who are 6 and 8 years younger than him. At family gatherings - he hardly ever spoke to us, but as he got his own family - he expressed wanting to be closer to us, but then grows cold. All of our kids are close in age. My middle brother and I easily can talk to each other and disagree for the most part, but the oldest brother freaks out. I certainly never want to but in with decisions they make for their families, but what does a close healthy relationship look like? But sometimes, their wives are downright rude and hurtful, but I never say anything I just pull away for a while then come to gatherings at other times. Anyway, what does a close healthy relationship between adult siblings look like? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
