my stepfather is my husband's father should also be accepted although it is somehow unlikely but possible in life... just because beau-pere... is the word in English for step father as well as father in law.... and we are about language learning and not complicated family situations....
My husband's mother married the father of his sister's husband. So his sister's stepfather did indeed become her father-in-law! Her beau-père became her beau-père.
I wrote ‘My husband’s father is my father-in-law’ and it was marked as wrong even though the previous question has exactly the same phrase concerning mother-in-law and was marked as correct when I used the same context. Unless there is one rule for female and another for male, this makes no sense whatsoever.
