After the wedding, many modern girls are lost in conjectures: how to call numerous relatives from the husband's side. After all, there are many of our own, and after marriage, there will be even more of her.
In order not to fool yourself in front of your husband's relatives, you need to know who they are in relation to you, and who you are in relation to them. This will allow you to increase your vocabulary and avoid long phrases such as "husband's brother's wife" or "great-aunt's second uncle."
This proud word is the name of your husband's father. Of course, you can call him dad or by name and patronymic - depending on the family values of your families, but it is important to know that he is your father-in-law. For him, you, in turn, are the daughter-in-law or daughter-in-law. By the way, get used to these words - daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law. This is what almost all of your husband's relatives will call you, unless, of course, you ask to call you by name.
Almost everyone knows who the mother-in-law is. There are many sayings and sayings about her. Your mother-in-law will be your husband's mother, respectively. You will be her daughter-in-law or daughter-in-law. There is a stereotype that the mother-in-law poisons the life of her daughter-in-law, but you shouldn't believe it. Mother-in-law is different.
If your husband has a brother or brothers, then it would be nice to know who they are to you. Their "title" in this complicated kinship scheme is brother-in-law. But with you everything is simple - you are again a daughter-in-law for them.
No, this is not an insult at all. The sister-in-law is the husband's sister. You are for her, as well as for almost all relatives of her husband, again a daughter-in-law.
It is very long and incomprehensible to pronounce the phrase "husband of the husband's sister", remember the shorter name of this relationship in relation to you - brother-in-law.
The wife of the husband's brother is also very long and difficult to pronounce, sometimes you can even get confused, or did you mean. Your husband's brother's wife will be your sister-in-law, in some families she is called a mate.
If your husband already has a son from a previous marriage, then he is your stepson. You are his stepmother.
The stepdaughter is your husband's daughter, who is not your own. Simply put, a daughter from a previous marriage. For her, as well as for her stepson, you will be considered a stepmother.
These are, in fact, all the "titles" that need to be learned. More distant relatives of your husband, such as cousins and grandparents, are not related to you. Therefore, you will have to call them by name or first name and patronymic, which, by the way, makes your life very easy.
