A few good men?

Today, I was visiting my in-laws and sharing a room with my husband's 17-year-old sister. Later that night she and her brother of 24 years started fist-fighting over an air mattress and I had to pull them off each other. The brother later berated me with, "You can't handle any pressure!" FML

That's just how siblings work. I'm a 17 year old girl and my brother is 21 and if it comes down to it neither one of us are scared of roughing the other one up. That's just how we were when we were younger so it sometimes shows now. Lots of siblings still fight like they're children, it's not a big deal and no parents are going to think that either child is abusing the other because of a little sibling rivalry, let alone accuse the adult sibling for assault.

No I don't know how "healthy"
sibling rivalry- which I think is bullshit anyway- works, because when my older brother and I fought it led to broken bones, concussions, and PTSD for me and stab wounds on his arms for him. Sibling rivalry CAN become abuse, and a lot of people sit on their ass and ignore it because "oh, they're siblings, one trying to do major bodily harm to the other is NORMAL!"

I'd rather point of the possibility than be the same type of person that led to me having cracked ribs three times.

I assumed that if there were only 3 bedrooms, and 2 opposite sex sibling living there, that it meant girls would bunk together. Otherwise brother and sister would have to share a room so hubby and wife could have a room.
