1 – Why did Kate refer to Abby as her SISTER IN LAW when talking to Chad today? HUH! If anything wouldn’t Abby be her daughter in law via her marriage to Stefano and a step mom to Chad?
2 – Why does everyone knock on doors and not just leave after a min or two? Eli did it to Ben twice – Chad just did it to Kate. Just don’t answer and they’ll go away LOLNovember 11, 2020 at 10:37 pm #57537JSLParticipant
It amazes me when there is knocking involved since most places in Salem leave the doors wide open.November 11, 2020 at 11:20 pm #57538rngatorParticipant

That would make Chad her brother in law but does it also make Abby her SIL?November 12, 2020 at 3:46 pm #57540
My husbands brother is my brother-in-law and his wife is my sister-in-law.November 15, 2020 at 2:09 am #57542
I always thought your husband’s brother would be your brother-in-law and his wife would be just your brother-in-laws wife.November 15, 2020 at 3:21 pm #57543
She’s my sister in-law, and their daughter is my niece.November 15, 2020 at 10:15 pm #57544
Officially in the english language we have no word for the spouse of your bother or sister in law. It is a regoinal thing apparently how you refer to them. I know that the daughter of my brother and his wife would be my niece, although niece is not considered an in-law so not sure what that has to do with it lolNovember 16, 2020 at 12:54 am #57545doolfanParticipant
It amazes me how the writers can keep all these relatives straight going back generations. They must have a big family tree in the writer’s room LOL
The Julie and Hope connection goes back years Julie is Hope’s step mother since she’s married to Doug, her biological father However, Hope and Julie are also half sisters since they share the same mother, Addie Horton. Addie was married to Doug many years ago. Before that, she was married to someone else who was Julie’s father. It really gets interesting when you go to the next generations of Ciara, Shawn Douglas, Claire.November 16, 2020 at 4:33 am #57546
Have anything to do with it DVAL – ur right. That’s a blood relative to you.
I’m not sure I agree with the above poster… I don’t believe the spouse of your brother or sister in law technically has a title. Unless of course you WANT them to.November 19, 2020 at 10:15 pm #57548
I agrree with your assessment of the title situation., lol. have to say I was a little insulted when the poster thought I didn’t know that my brother or sister’s child would be my niece, LOL. Actually have quite a few of them, and nephews too. I have two sisters-in-law but my hubby is an only child. he has a cousin who had her children refer to me as Aunt Denise even though there is no WAY that could work out, LOL since my husband’s mother was their aunt and he was a cousin.November 20, 2020 at 4:12 pm #57549
My sister-in-law could be:
November 20, 2020 at 4:14 pm #57550
- the sister of my spouse, or
- the wife of my brother, or
- the wife of my spouse’s brother. (This meaning is accepted by AHD4, but not by all authorities.)
But, I have a name and I didn’t think you didn’t now about the relationship of your niece. No need to be insulted.November 20, 2020 at 4:17 pm #57551bluebonnetParticipant
everyone in my neck of the woods has known the definition to be. I just never realized anyone else did it another way.November 20, 2020 at 11:55 pm #57553
that’s what I read. I was raised that your in-law was blood relative in the family you marry into. their spouse is just that, their spouse.
