Is sibling rivalry more pronounced among brothers or sisters? Studies show that sibling rivalry is caused by a great many different things, but having said that, gender does seem to play a role in the severity and nature of sibling rivalry. Still, these studies are not conclusive, and they recognize that there are a great many other causes of sibling rivalry. Family conflict is not a recent phenomenon. It has been with the human race since the fall of man. If you have ever seriously studied the Bible for any length of time you may have noticed in your studies that many of the men and women of the Bible grew up in a setting of unhealthy family traditions. Jacob’s family is one such family for he has married two sisters and their sibling rivalry greatly affects Jacob's circumstances.
