What is the name for my relationship with my child's spouse's cousin (child-in-law's cousin) (daughter's husband's cousin) (son-in-law's cousin)?

  • What about your child's spouse's sister's first-born daughter's child's oldest male cousin's youngest uncle? – Drew Nov 19 '16 at 17:00
  • @Drew man, if I knew would I be here? ;) – MikeJava Nov 20 '16 at 1:23

To know your relation to x, consider what the relationship of your corresponding person, on the in-laws side has with x.

Here, the corresponding person would be your child's spouse's father. He is an uncle to the cousin. Hence, the given cousin is your nephew-in-law (or niece-in-law)

    A nephew/niece-in-law could suggest a whole host of possible relationships. Far easier, if you want to be precise is to say my son-in-law's cousin. – WS2 Nov 19 '16 at 12:18
  • @WS2 definitely clearer that way. – MikeJava Nov 20 '16 at 1:24
