Mixed Results: Middle + Youngest2 of 6
Were Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry doomed from the start? If the middle child, like Gabriel, has mainly first-born traits, it could be an excellent match; however, if the middle has last-born traits, this relationship could be disastrous.
Worst Match: Youngest + Youngest3 of 6
Halle's had birth-order bad luck in the past, with ex-husband Eric Benet who's also a youngest child. Youngests have fun, but nobody will be in charge and the relationship may whirl into chaos.

Mixed Results: Oldest + Oldest4 of 6
Friction is likely when these two controlling, yet people-pleasing, personalities team up. If both are always competing, it will likely turn into a power struggle. (Maybe this is why Beniffer didn’t work out?)
ON TRESSUGAR: Physical vs. Emotional Chemistry
Mixed Results: Oldest + Middle5 of 6
Both J. Lo and Ben found better matches with middle children (Marc Anthony and Jen Garner, respectively) after their split. Coincidence? We think not! Though, there are some challenges here, too: Middle children are often hypersensitive to injustice — if the oldest tries to take control, he or she may perceive unfairness.

Best Match: Oldest + Youngest6 of 6
Brad Pitt (an oldest) and Angelina Jolie (a youngest) are a great example of this pairing. But the best-case scenario for this birth match is a youngest male with older sisters: He'll bring out the maternal side of his mate, which she'll adore.
