    I’m the youngest of 6 and so is he. I have 4 brothers and had a sister who passed when she was a baby. He has 4 sisters and his brother just recently passed.

    My SO and I have kind of weird similar family situatiions. I am a middle child, I have two older sisters who are fifteen and thirteen years older than me (both half sisters, technically, one from each parent, though to me a sister is a sister), and one younger sister . So although I am middle child, I feel like an oldest child, because my sisters were both out of the house by the time I started kindergarten. I literally have no memories of us all living together under one roof because I was so young. I tend to relate to/gravitate towards oldest children as well. My SO has a half sibling who is sixteen years older than him, and a younger sibling, putting him in the exact same situation.

    Technically, we’re both youngests.

    However, I was adopted.  In my adopted family, I’m the youngest of the whole family (including cousins I consider siblings).  In my birth family, I’m the only (and the oldest of all the cousins)  It’s so weird to be on opposite ends of the spectrum!

    I’m the youngest and he is a triplet.  He is the oldest triplet if that counts.

    I don’t know how to answer. I’m the oldest of two, but I never know whether to count DH as an only child or the youngest. He has an older half-brother from his father’s first marriage, but he was raised half the time in DH’s house. But DH is his mom’s only.

    I’m the youngest (1 sister) and he’s the youngest (3 brothers). We were raised completely differently (his parents were not attentive, my parents were overly attentive)…but we both have very similar attitudes toward life and the ability to compromise and share well is one facet of our relationship that is different from any other I’ve been in (both times with only children)

    My sister wishes and acts like she grew up as an only child and is in a relationship with an only child. They are both fairly selfish (him moreso than her) which creates conflict in their relationship because neither one wants to budge or give in to the other. She tends to give in to him way more often than the other way around.
