Whether you love them or find them horribly irritating, a sibling bond is a relationship that’s difficult to find anywhere else.

People with no siblings might struggle to understand why you deeply love somebody that you might argue with, pinch things from or make fun of.

Reddit user brenb1120 asked for siblings on the website to explain the things that an only child would never truly understand.

Here are the 10 best answers, that might shed a little light on the subject.

1. Your sibling will always find a way to be clumsy around your stuff.

2. You may fight with them, but you’ll always have their back.
