      depends...

      'supposedly' the responsibilites are to act as fatherfigure to the younger brothers n sisters.....
      like...trying to take care of their legitimate financial needs (if parents are not able to or retired or passed away).....and guide them (if they are able to)

      As an elder brother I've realized so many things that may never be known by youngers. And I think the fact whether parents are there or no barely impacts the importance of being the eldest. The most important responsibility of the eldest is to take the entire family together, like all streamlined. He has to support the youngers whenever its required or even when not required. And this support goes from financial aspect to social. And if you are the eldest, dont even think that you can get anyone realize that you are doing anythng for them. Just do it and forget. If they are thankful, its your luck and if they dont count it, you just cant do anything about it.
      You have to get yourself aware of whatever each brother/sis is going through. You have to be very careful in the choice of words when the time comes that you'd need to bash anyone for anything. Its just a very delicate balance that you gotto keep.
      So in short, the eldest has to be very very responsible, but still there is no room of error for them. He just cant be insensitive at any time.

      Boy, I think I can write a whole book on this topic.
      I wake up every morning and grab for the morning paper. Then I look at the obituary page. If my name is not on it, I get up

      ya....whatever the reason......it doesn't happen........that you agree with me........and thats the point the person should know who is marrying thinking that his wife will take care or help him take care of his parents......he shouldn't be expecting that right?
