Interview One Questions
The first interview is between two sisters. I questioned the oldest sister, which is 30 years old. I believe that this sibling relationship is between Intimate and congenial. The reason I think this, is because the sisters seem very close and seem to accept that their relationship is valued by both of them. I also believe that the relationship is congenial because the siblings seem to be friends as well. These sisters seem to be emotionally supportive, and they understand each other, and know most everything about each other.

Interview Two Questions
For this interview I talked with a lady about her relationship with her older brother. They were the only two children, and seemed to be close when they were younger, but grew apart, once they became married and having families of their own. The type of relationship I think these siblings have is between Congenial and Loyal. The reason is because they are not that close, but they care about each other, and are busy with their own families. I think that they are loyal siblings because they share the same childhood and parenting, and have regular contact with each other on holidays, or if the family comes together for their parents or children. I also think that these siblings support each other if there is a crisis.
Q. What is the age difference between yourself and your brother or sister?
