New research shows growing up with many siblings is a health benefit

Less likely to get divorced with multiple siblings

Good news for those of you who have multiple brothers and sisters.
 
New research from Ohio State shows the more siblings you have, the less likely you are to get divorced later in life.
 
Researchers believe that growing up with siblings gives people more experience in dealing with others, considering their feelings, and learning how to work through problems.
 
The biggest benefit was seen with families that have up to 7 kids.
 
So if you have siblings, love on them and thank your parents.
