Why should you live with your siblings?
1. Home outside Hometown
Like we discussed above, living outside your hometown can be full of challenges. But when you live with your siblings, things can get a lot easier. While looking for a suitable roommate, you can be surrounded by many challenges like a mismatch of likes and dislikes, you should know that your sibling can understand you the best.
Thus, you can easily make yourself a home outside your hometown when you live with your siblings. You can even call your relatives and other family members home as well.
2. Sharing is Caring
When you live with a roommate, even when it’s your friend whom you have known for long, you need to abide by certain rules. These rules not only apply to compatibility and likes and dislikes, but also sharing. And, you can’t expect to share everything freely with your roommate as you do with a family member.
And, why worry when that family member is your brother or sister? Thus sharing becomes caring for you when you live with your siblings outside your hometown.
3. A Built-in Trust
When you start living with a roommate, trusting each other isn’t completely possible and even if it is, it takes time to build one. On the other hand, when you live with your siblings, the value of trust is inbuilt or in other words, comes right from your hometown.
You have lived with them for a long and even if small quarrels arise, you never stop loving each other. Thus, when you live with your siblings, trust is one of the values that you do not need to worry about.
4. Creating a space you both love
When you live with your siblings, your likes and dislikes align well. And, when you rent a space together, staging it becomes easier. While on one hand, this process would become complex depending on the preferences of your roommate and what you both agree on, two siblings can create a space they both love with ease.
5. Compromises are Always Easy
Choosing a roommate always revolves around some compromises. This is because you can’t keep on changing your apartment if your roommate and preferences do not align. But you have little to no compromises at all when you live with your siblings. And even if you have to do certain compromises, these are more flexible and easier.
6. Saving a Ton
Believe it or not, our siblings in India always are there to watch each other’s back. Even when you do not earn well, you always have a brother or sister to back you up when you live with your siblings. This way you will have someone to help you out in all ways and can even save a ton in times of financial hardship.
Living with a roommate, on the other hand, can be an expensive affair overall.

7. Enjoying Common Festivities Together
You have lived with your siblings for a long and have shared common values in the process of upbringing as children. You have lived in the same culture and have shared all festivals and family events together. Thus, when you live with your siblings even as adults, you can surely share all festivities together, which roommates coming from cultures can truly enjoy.
Thus, when you live with your siblings outside your hometown, it surely is awesome. Growing together as children and then becoming roommates can be the best thing a sibling can hope for. We are sure you would love living with a like-minded roommate like your brother or sister for the reasons stated above.
