I have a brother, so we are the typical brother sister thing.
My husband had a brother (he passed away at age 24) . My best friend has two grown sons.
They play great together, but when they are pre-teens and teens, they fight. Sometimes it's roughhousing, but they fight BIG. Like breaking the kitchen table kind of fighting. Everyone I know who has two sons has lost furniture to them and their wrestling and fighting. So, don't get too attached to anything in your house until they move out.
They back each other up. They will not tattle on each other. So, if you suspect one has been drinking or out past curfew, don't expect the other to rat him out... he's going to either "check into it" and ignore you, or flat out refuse to tell you. But, even then, you know the bad one will be OK, because the good one will knock some sense into him. Then, a few weeks later the bad one is good and the good one is bad... so, it evens out.
