  • BF = Best Friend
    DD = Dear Daughter
    DS = Dear Son
    DH = Dear Husband ( or damn husband depending on the day and the mood.... LOL)
    SS = Step Son
    SD = Step Daughter
    MIL = Mother in Law
    FIL = Father in Law
    BIL= Brother in law
    SIL = Sister in law
    OW = Other woman

    There are plenty more. Those are just the ones that were right on the tip of my tongue (so to speak)..
