RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Does having a sister make you happier? The NY Times wants to know:


I have a sister. She's ok. We don't have many deep chats or anything. And sometimes she's a pain in the ass about holidays. What do you think?

Rebecca White (rebecca_white) | 1028 comments No, my sister doesn't make me happy. I kind of wish I was an only child. But I love my niece - that's my sister's contribution to my life.

Dr. Detroit | 6032 comments I'd gladly take a bullet for my wife, kids OR my sister, despite her tugging my parents' sleeves toward this ad from one of my Creem magazines, resulting in a rather-uncomfortable dinner-table pow-wow about my sexual preferences and affection for the herb, the grape, the grain, and the hops.

Having siblings makes me happier. I have three and I know I would have been much lonelier with even two, or one, or none. Still, I'm a pretty private person and I don't discuss "my emotions" with my sisters. If I do discuss them, it's with close friends. But there's something about having a big nuclear family, for me, that is irreplaceable. Close friends can't replace it. It's just qualitatively different.

I have three sisters. Not speaking to them makes me happy.
