Not all twins are extremely close
Siblings often have close relationships throughout their lives, and twins are supposed to share the deepest bonds of all. However, this is the real world. Not all siblings get along with each other. Even identical twins find reasons to completely shut each other out of their lives. These twins just couldn’t stand maintaining a relationship with their twin after what went down between them.
The Family Fortune
My identical twin brother the attorney ran a family restaurant into the ground. Borrowed startup money from my mom and dad and me. Didn’t pay back. Litigated the Family for two years to stay in control until the end. Decimated my elderly parents financially: -$750,000. I lost upwards of $600,000. Spread litigation to several other family business. Dropped the sham lawsuits at the very end and closed the restaurant. Damage was done. Family fractured forever.
Shockingly. He didn’t lose any money. He never had skin in the game. Used litigation successfully to damage everyone else but himself to force a one sided settlement at the cost of all of the relationships.
At the end, I leveraged everything I had. I bought all remaining businesses and real estate to financially stabilize and protect my elderly parents. (jmorgan1474)
We went down two separate life paths.
As children, we were the typical twins: same haircut, dressed similarly, same bedroom, etc. When we became teenagers, we realized we were two separate people and didn’t want to be similar in any way. So I kept down the regular path, focused on school and got a part-time job. She started to rebel and began skipped school, running away from home, hanging out with the wrong crowd.
Now I’m a junior at a private college and she’s on welfare with her three children and dead-beat baby daddy.
We don’t talk because it always ends up in an argument about me getting “lucky” and being “favored.” I’d love to see her and reconnect, but we’re just two different people now. (rougeinlove)
He’s repeatedly proven himself to be a liar, a thief, and an abuser. We moved in together after high school, and he stole all the money I’d saved for a car.
After I left town he broke into my parents house and robbed them. For a while he was in jail for drugs and domestic violence. We’re Facebook friends, but I haven’t contacted him since he got out. I hope I never see him again. (lottakids17)
