I was for about 8 years. Now? Not so much.

Im closer to my cousins than I am to my sister, and the age difference has very little to do with it.

OP seems hell bent on making everyone believe only children is the way to go. Why don't you just take on board people's opinions instead of trying to debunk all the ones you have not experienced....

Huh?  That's not true.  I never said only children is the way to go.  I just don't agree with all the negativity about only children being lonely or spoiled.  What's wrong with that?  Would you feel better if I said....yeah being an only child is horrible, lonely, etc?  How do you feel about the many people who feel that siblings are the way to go? 
 
And I have experienced a lot.  Most people I know have siblings, and they can be spoiled, selfish, and lonely.  Having siblngs is not a magical cure for everything.
 
Also, I didn't take on people's opinons because I was only interested in how many only children are on the forum.   That's all.  Why the hostility?

This is why I would like my baby to have a sibling. My husband only wants one child, and I fear my baby being alone once we are gone. Me being the youngest of 8 siblings we are very close, I feel sad my baby will not have that sibling bond that I share with my brothers and sisters. I mean my baby has tons of cousins but there is no bond like a sibling bond.
 
"No bond like a sibling bond?"  What about the many people who are estranged from their siblings?
 
Also:
 

"Nearly 2 million children use a weapon as a means of resolving a physical confrontation with a sibling.

Siblings commit 10 percent of the murders in the American family.

Children who are abused by their sibling(s) can become aggressive bullies.

Bullying starts in many American homes.

Each year, siblings abuse 19 million children…in their own home.

The linkage between bullying and sibling abuse has been grossly overlooked."

Source: Siblingsbully.com

 
Also, here's an interesting book about the dark side of siblings:
 

"Cain's Legacy: Liberating Siblings from a Lifetime of Rage, Shame, Secrecy, and Regret." Jeanne Safer

Here's a quote from Cain's Legacy: "Bonds between brothers and sisters are among the longest lasting and most emotionally significant of human relationships. But while 45 percent of adults struggle with serious sibling strife, few discuss it openly. Even fewer resolve it to their satisfaction."

OP why don't you want us to have more than one child Geek you seem to be going hard for the cause Ouch

People also seem to be going hard saying that an only child is lonely etc.  I have nothing against anyone having more than one child.  However, I'm not against anyone having one child, either.
 
The only reason I showed the facts about sibling bullying is because a poster stated "There is nothing like a sibling bond."  Not all siblings are close or have a bond.  What's wrong with me admitting that?

I was pointing out that not all siblings are close because a poster stated "There's nothing like a sibling bond."  Did you not see the comment?  Why does pointing out that no situation is perfect bother you?
