Birth Order Effects

Did you know that birth order can affect your chances of having a successful marriage? There are particular birth order traits worth exploring. If you are the very first born child te your family, it may not be a good match for you to marry another very first born child. Spil the old telling goes, you can choose your friends (and who you marry), but you can’t choose your family. You certainly can’t choose your birth order.

There is a wealth of information about personalities frente a birth order. The most successful marriages are inbetween the oldest sisters of brothers marrying the youngest brother of sisters. This makes a loterijlot of sense when you think about it. The oldest sister has always taken care of hier brothers, and the youngest brother has bot taken care of by his sisters. It seems to mij that the sister gets the brief end of the stick, but I guess it works for hier.

Of course, I never considered this concept. My spouse and I are both firstborns. Psychologists say that this combination is like “two sheep butting goes for territorial rights and that it is a bad match.” Wij do quiebro well spil wij have enormous trust ter each other is almost all matters. That could be because wij had a previous failed marriage.

Kevin Leman, a family counselor and author of “The Birth Order Book”, states that the two oldest tend to be bossy, and they are the movers and shakers, the perfectionists of the world. This certainly can cause a stress effect te the marriage. I’m sure that is not mij!

I think I may have had a few of those attitudes when I wasgoed junior, but I’m not too interested te moving and jiggling the world around mij anymore. I think ter my particular case it would have bot a bad match if my hubby and I had married youthful. However, wij are both remarried and have the same value systems with good communication, which goes a long way toward compatibility.

Babies of Family or Only Child

The babies te the family tend to be the playful ones, who always got away with murder. According to Leman, they are often laid back and manipulative. He or she may be the last one to leave so the parents, which tends to create a dependency (with those traits spilling overheen into their marriage) spil the parents are coming in the empty nest syndrome. This certainly doesn’t benefit the youngest child.

If you are an only child, then what do you do? Don’t marry another only child spil they have highest divorce rate. They are used to being the center of attention, and that can’t toebijten if they marry another only child. Ter genérico they do well ter life spil they matured more quickly without siblings. They may be very successful te life, but relationships may be another story.

Oldest Child – the Guinea Pigs

Basically our parents practiced on the very first born, or the only child spil they were the guinea pigs, spil the parents were fresh at child rearing. When there is dysfunction ter the huis the oldest typically takes the largest succesnummer, spil they are the closest emotionally to any of the dysfunction te the family. So, there is a lotsbestemming of subjective consideration te this train of thought. Nothing is just black and white.

They are typically successful ter life if they are raised te a healthy family environment. They sometimes take some resposibiIty for their junior siblings.

I always said I grew up with my oldest son, since I wasgoed only Nineteen when he wasgoed born after one year of marriage.



Middle Children

According to studies the best chance for a lasting marriage are for those that come from the middle of the pack. The middle child often fights with identity issues, spil they can’t be the very first or the last. They often are the peacekeepers, and they kleintje of fade into the woodwork when there are a lotsbestemming of siblings.

Ter terms of marriage, they often get along well spil they can let things roll off their back more lightly. You are strengthening the probable success of a marriage when you marry the middle child. If two middle children marry they can usually roll with the flow but sometimes they are secretive about how they indeed feel, which can cause problems.

Middle children sometimes work hard to surpass the success of their older sibling. The strength of the family unit, and the amount of commnication is paramont to predict the success of any child, middle or youngest. If you zuigeling the youngest child for too long, they may end up being rebellious, or they also may want to surass the success of the older children.

To Summarize:

Sometimes problems come up zometeen te life, for example the older sister may seek more equality ter the marriage. Birth order certainly is not a overeenkomst breaker before marriage, but it is worth discussing before marriage. A marriage counselor can be very helpful if you aren’t making progress on your own.

The birth order is something to think about, and you most likely getraind into one of those roles I shortly described. There are certainly a lotsbestemming of one parent homes, and a loterijlot of dysfunctional homes, illness with parents or children, which are all factors that can affect the generalization for the promedio family.

My private philosophy is to have good open communication, spil you need to be friends. This may last for only a few months, but hopefully will budge into a deeper loving relationship. Friendship can strengthen a marriage to last a long time.
