For children, having a twin means to have a reliable friend throughout their whole lives, a mate for sharing numerous jokes and playing games, or an invaluable assistant who would always come to help in the time of need.
However, having a twin doesn’t lose its advantages even in the adult age.
Twins, especially identical ones, reflect each other’s images.
In childhood, twins give each other a sense of security.
Furthermore, at an early age, twins need each other because they give each other a sense of support and security.
The twins are there for each other as they experience the ups and downs of life and growing up.
They start to form their relationship based on mutual support and understanding.
In the teenage years, twins may experience problems connected to sexuality and privacy, and they often start rivalry for the attention of the opposite sex and parents, but as they grow up that rivalry usually fades away.
However, a close bond between the twins usually still remains.
This process of growth, from early childhood through the teenage years and until adulthood, is what makes the twins bond and understand each other at a level other relationships most often do not get to.
