In Laws

Is your hubby's siblings wife's or hubby's your sis in law or bro in law too? Some say yes, some say no. I say no because they are not related to my hubby.

  • HAHAHA I like snoober k's answer.
    i think they are family though. If they qualify to attend family functions (they are related or married in) then they are a part of the family.

  • Yes, of course. You count the spouse of your sil or bil as an in-law.

  • I certainly call my SIL's hubby my BIL. I'm no relation to his family, but he's a part of mine because he married in to it just like I did.
