If you want to be able to add a brother/sister, there must be one parent. I
use such dummies as the easiest means of dealing with the situation.

Otherwise you could create a custom tag (Relationship perhaps) and include
it in each sibling's group of tags, explaining (with what I'd consider
excessive effort) the relationship from each to the other(s).
