I definitely believe that birth order affects your personality, so it probably affects who you choose as a partner! I’m an oldest child with a younger brother. Mr. Bee is an identical twin with an older sister and a younger sister. So he’s a middle child in his family, but also a younger sibling since he has an older twin (twins take birth order seriously).
What about you? What is your birth order? What is your FI’s?

I’m the oldest, with a younger sister and a younger brother. My Fiance is sort of an only child, but he’s really the youngest. He has three older half-siblings from his fathers first marriage. They were finishing high school when he was born and only one stayed with them part-time, so he never really lived with any of them.

I’m an only child so I’m automatically wonderfully perfect and awesome in my parents eyes and my hunny is the youngest. It was always him and his older sister but you would think he was a middle child with the way he acts

I was the middle child for most of my life, with a sister 2 years older, and a sister 4 years younger. When I was 15, my parents adopted a baby who is now 11 years old. So now I share the middle space. And I DEFINATELY think birth order has an effect!
My fiance is a middle child also, but he is the third of four and the youngest of 3 boys.

I’m both an only child and the oldest. ^_^ My parents divorced when I was little, my dad remarried later and had 2 kids, a boy and a girl. But I’m 14 years older than my sis, and 17 years older than my brother. And since I lived with my mom, I consider myself an only child in terms of personality. I’m spoiled, I admit it. He, on the other hand, is also a twin, and has 2 younger siblings. His twin sister is 11 minutes older (you’re right mrsbee, they definitely take it seriously!), but due to complicated circumstances that aren’t my business to tell, he basically raised his siblings, including his "older" sister. He was the one who made sure they got up in time to catch the bus and all those things. So he’s WAY more responsible than me, and a lot more mature. But we’re both aware of this, he chooses to be patient, I work to grow up, so I don’t think it’ll be a bad set up. ^_^

I’m the oldest of 4. Weirdly, I’ve only dated younger children. I think birth order has a profound effect on the individual!

I’m the second of 4. But when I was a teenager (after my sis had moved out) we had some serious family issues and I raised my younger brothers for a while. So i have a weird combination of people pleasing and control freak… Almost split personality-ish some days.
He is the middle child of his mom’s kids; three boys. Also, his mom despised him due to his father leaving her (all three boys have different dads) so he is an extreme extreme people pleaser. This is something we have been working very hard on! When he was 13 he met his dad who has 3 additional children. They are all three significantly younger then him though and he is not as close to them, though occasionally he’ll pull the big brother / eldest child stuff out.
My control issues and his need for confirmation can really cause some issues sometimes. It really bothers me when he wont fight for himself though so luckily that middle child side of me keeps us from turning into an unhealthy duo!

I’m the older child with one sister. My fiance is the eldest of 3 boys. We’re both very stubborn and independent, so I think birth order definitely has an effect.
