One question...."Min søns kone" is my daughter-in-law?? any similar -in-law expression paº dansk?


[deactivated user]

    We use the prefix sviger-

    • daughter-in-law = svigerdatter

    • mother-in-law = svigermor

    • parents-in-law = svigerforældre

    An so on.

    So do German! it's going to be easy to remember...I was afraid this could be like in Spansk : daughter-in-law= nuera, sister-in-law= cuñada, svigermor = suegra!!...in-laws = familia política...no way, Spanish is so complicated!!

    Its not too commonly used in English, we would usually say _-in-law, but its not always used
