In-Laws & Stepfamily in Portuguese Posted by polyana on Feb 6, 2012 in Vocabulary
Yesterday at lunch, we were talking about in-laws, and the question of whether there was a word for a brother/sister-in-law’s spouse existed. And in Portuguese, there is a word! So I figured I’d do a quick post on in-laws and “step” type vocabulary in Portuguese! Next time you go to visit them, you can impress them with your fancy Portuguese names for them!
