Talk:in-law

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

In the Netherlands and Belgium gay marriage is legal. Does anybody know if this affects the terms with which you refer to your in-laws? For example, is the husband of someone's son also called a son-in-law? I'm pretty sure that this is so in Dutch, but what about English -- since there are no English speaking countries (yet) where gay marriage is legal. D.D. 19:26 Apr 27, 2003 (UTC)

Even simpler: is it correct to say that a married gay couple consists of 2 husbands, and a married lesbian couple of 2 wives? D.D.


I hope I've interpreted my Russian-English dictionary correctly. Is this a good way to label words with no set translation? Hippietrail 03:28, 28 Jan 2004 (UTC)
