Hmmm... Does it also mean that my brother and my sister are my siblings?
Kompreneble jes! Mia frato kaj mia fratino estas miaj gefratoj.
No, that sentence was only about your parents, unfortunately ;(
Grammar question: is the second "nia" required or optional here?
It's optional, and leaving it out would make room for slight ambiguity, as in English.
Would that change the first "nia" to "niaj"?
I left it out and it marked it as wrong
Wow, never would have figured that one out!!!
does "ge" at the beginning always make the root into a hierarchy such as siblings, parents, etc... is it a fixed rule?
the prefix Ge- means both sexes. Gefratoj means siblings, geamikoj means both guy and girl friends, geknaboj are children both boys and girls.
Yes, it generally means "both" according to my knowledge from surfing these discussions.
Ya dont say
I keep thinking that it is grandparents lol.
Oh my god. I never would have thought... MY LIFE IS A LIE!
Nia patrino kaj nia patro ne estas niaj gepatroj
I thought I was walking into Our mother and our father are siblings.
This wouldn't work if your parents are a gay couple, I'm assuming.. as "ge" means both genders.. right?
From some research, it seems like whether "ge-" means "both sexes" or "unspecified sex(es)" is under debate. (The latter is a proposed alternative to the former.)
Is there a rule attached to "gepatroj" starting with "ge"?
Yes, it basically means both genders.
Would it still make sense if it translated (in English) to "Our mother and father are parents?"

This sentence in Spanish is: Nuestra madre y nuestra madre son nuestros padres.
Almost! Change the second "madre" in your sentence to "padre", i.e. "Nuestra madre y nuestro padre son nuestros padres.
Yes, I put twice "nuestra madre". I was wrong. It was happened for writing quickly.
And you accidentally said that you had two mothers... xD
Well, that's possible too ;)
What is the difference between Nia and Niaj?
Niaj is pural and nia is singular. Niaj is used for gepatroj because gepatroj includes more than one person (plural).
Can't understand the difference between NIA and Niaj
Nia and Niaj both refer to "our", but Niaj is used when describing more than one thing. For instance, "Our mother" is "Nia patrino", while "Our parents" means "Niaj gepatroj".
