In-Laws

First I had a Mother-in-law.
Then there were five brothers-in-law.
Those were followed quickly with three sisters-in-law.
Then came the nieces and nephews-in-law.
My husbands cousins, aunts and uncles became more in-laws
Fortunately, none of them were outlaws.
I learned to love them one and all, those in-laws.
Not that we always agreed,
But, normal life leaves lots of different needs.
