Sister Bond FAQs

What is A Sister Bond?

A sister bond is a relationship is one that you can't replicate. You and your sister have experienced almost everything that you have. You’ve lived in the same house, were raised by the same people, and a lot of times, you even share genetics. You also see each other at your bests and worst. Your sister has seen all your tears - both from crying and laughing. They’ve stood by your side throughout all these moments. This solidifies your bond - and there is no one else you spend almost all your time with.

How Can You Show Your Sister You Care About Your Bond?

To show your sister that your bond means something to you, there’s a lot that you can do. It doesn’t have to be any grand gesture - it needs to be a reminder that you care for her. If you’re the older sister, you may no longer live at home and your sister does. In this case, a nice idea is to call her and ask how she’s doing. Just because you are no longer living with her doesn’t mean you should let the bond dwindle out. Or if you’re still living at home, invite your sister to take part in some of your plans. If you’re the younger sister, write your sister a handwritten note or ask her if she wants to have a movie night. These are meaningful gestures that will strengthen your bond and show her how much it means to you. 

Does A Sister Have to be Related to You?

A sister does not have to be related to you by blood. Step-sisters are a perfect example of this. They still have a sister-bond, but don’t share any genetics. They are still surrounded by the same people and getting a similar family experience. This allows for your sister bond to flourish, even if you became sisters later in life. A sister bond is not only for those who are blood-related.
