Siblings Age Gap

Ask a Question

Just curiosity, if you have 2 children at least what is the year gap? Do you think it is easier to manage if they are closer in age? 🤔

Mine are 23 months apart. I wanted a gap of two years and got it. They were born when I was 20 and 22 so by 30 I was free to start a career (lasted 26 yrs) and in current job for 10 years. I also enjoyed a great social life while still young enough to enjoy it.

My oldest sibling is 10 years younger than me and the youngest is 17 years younger, born the year I was married.

So for those of you doing the maths.....no.....I wasn't pregnant when I married lol.

My sister and I are twelve years apart in age. She has always acted more like my mother than a sister as my parents had a business when I was a baby so she was left to care for me a lot. We don’t have a sibling relationship. She got married when I was seven and moved away.

The gap between my boys is 19 months but my daughter is 11 years older. When my daughter was young I was her play mate while my boys are best friends

I only have one child, but I have two sisters one is 5 years older and one 3 years younger.

From what I have observed with friends the closer in age the better it's hard work when they are younger but they seem to be closer when they are older.
