"Sisters-in-Law" or "Sister-in-Laws"?


Let's take a second here to talk about one thing that many people might not know: How do you say more than one sister-in-law or brother-in-law?



Well, you make "in-law compounds" plural by making the noun part plural since the women are primarily sisters, and the "-in-law" part just further describes what kind of sisters they are:
Sisters-in-law
Brothers-in-law
Fathers-in-law
Mothers-in-law
