Primas Are Sharing What Makes Their Bonds Just As Special As A Sisterhood

Primas Are Sharing What Makes Their Bonds Just As Special As A Sisterhood

@priscila_henriique / Instagram

Family is very important to the Latinidad. It isn’t just our immediate blood connections that hold powerful meaning to us, it’s also our family that has become close to us through shared experiences. Besides friends and found family, our primas can definitely be put into this group. Whether they’re related by blood or just by proximity, our primas mean so much to us. Our co-conspiritors, our best friends and the women who will always have our backs, the bond we have with our primas makes us stronger. It’s worth celebrating that.

We asked our FIERCE readers to tell us what their primas mean to them and what we got was a comments section full of a whole lot of love and heart emojis. Combined with some of our favorite internet posts, these comments remind us just how precious that bond with our primas our. This is sure to make you want to send a text to the family group chat to tell your primas how much you love them.

1. Primas equal sisterhood

Coming from anyone else, these would be fighting words but our primas know us that way so it’s all good.

Ultimately, our primas are everything to us.

The best part about seeing your prima at family parties is that you get to catch up on chisme and laugh about your inside jokes. Here’s how it usually goes when you two reunite…

As soon as one of you makes the smallest reference to your inside joke, you both start cracking up right away.?

Sometimes you don’t even have to say a word.

Even though you try super hard to hold in your laugh…

Because maybe it’s not the appropriate time and place to start joking around.

It’s impossible. ? You can’t help it.

And no matter how old the joke gets, it always makes you die of laughter.?

Because inside jokes are the best kind of jokes.

It’s just one of those inside jokes between you and your prima that will never get old no matter what.
