    Default In-Laws

    We all know who in-laws are, and most of us have some of our own.

    But what 'law' is being referred to? and why? I imagine it is something to do with the 'church', since it is not a law of the land.

    It may be archaic.

    Are there no legal ramifications to marriage?

    I don't know who are worst your in laws or your own family?

    I'm afraid I can't help you without googling. It's just a turn of phrase. Like "common-law wife/husband", a person you're living with in a relationship, without being married.

    You don't know? GOSH

    It actually means a relative by marriage but comes from canon law (13th or 14th century, but I could be wrong with that) that defines family relationships, rights, and restrictions resulting from marriage.
    I though everyone knew that.
