Still, we seemed to get the hang of the whole living together thing, despite the occasional screaming match sorry, neighbors and made it a whole seven years as roommates in tiny studios and one hastily converted two-bedroom until my grad school move broke us out of what was essentially the adult version of sibling bunkbeds. Figuratively, I mean. Reliving this aspect of your childhood cohabitation situation may sound like your version of a nightmare, but rooming with a sibling was actually a great solution for us.
I think that they should each have their own invitatitons. So you'd be mailing out two invitations! Technically etiquette says anyone over 18 gets their own invite
Somehow we're squeezing 16 people into our apartment for Thanksgiving this year, with relatives ranging in age from my year-old nephew to my year-old mother. I love them all, but in a way the one I know best is the middle-aged man across the table whose blue eyes look just like mine: my younger brother Paul. Paul and I kind of irritated each other when we were kids; I would take bites out of his precisely made sandwiches in just the spot I knew he didn't want me to, and he would hang around the living room telling jokes when he knew I wanted to be alone with the boy on the couch.
You may be undeniably close, and you may even consider your beloved brother or sister to be your best friend. I know I certainly do; my siblings and I are like a covert crime network, always in constant contact and always up to cheeky no good. We went to different colleges: two to Boston, another in Ireland.

My elder sister and I were extremely close when we were younger we are very near in age and, while we bickered as teenagers, we remained firm friends. Now we are adults in our 20s, that has all changed, and I fear that we have irrevocably lost what we once had. We moved around different cities after university, but ended up in the same city, hardly seeing each other.
What would it be like to live with your adult sister? Would it be one big sleepover with shared clothes and constant double dates? Or never-ending squabbles and a total lack of boundaries?
What if they never clean? Or pay their bills on time? What if they watch movies about serial killers until 3AM?
