You may have a love-hate relationship with your sister, but no matter what, you know she’ll always be there for you. Here are just a few of our favorite things about having a sister.

1. You’ve had a built-in best friend since childhood…

2. …and an easy choice for your maid of honor at your future wedding.

…but that competitiveness motivates you to be better.

5. You never have to be bored when you’re home on break.

6. You always have someone to hang out with at family functions.
