As we all know, the world would be a much better place if everyone had sisters in laws, but that doesn’t mean that it does. Instead, it means that we don’t always know how to address the problems that arise when two people with the same family background find the same person, regardless of where they get married. It’s a common problem, that couples are often not aware of but that we keep pushing our spouses to address.
As we all know, this problem is even worse than the fact that the term “sister in law” has a double meaning in some cultures, where it is actually used to describe a woman having a husband’s brother. Instead of being a term to refer to a woman that has a brother, its used to refer to a woman that has a husband. Its a problem we often don’t realize is out there, especially when we’re married.
