in-law n. a relative by marriage.
Not everyone marries as well as me.
How do I know this? Well, because I hear some of my friends refer to their in-laws as out-laws.
And that can't be good.
Because the opposite of 'in' is 'out'.
I guess that's not very welcoming.
But my in-laws are so supportive. So great with the kids. So great with us.
And they'll never be outlaws at our place...
