Today, I discovered that my father is getting married. Overjoyed and confused because I didn't know he was dating, I called him up to congratulate him, and ask who she was. Apparently, his soon to be fiancée is my mother-in-law. My wife is not happy. FML

Definite FYL, you'll be married to your step sister

That's awkward, I've seen this happen before. Just an overall bad situation.

how he got married first

This reminds of that Fresh Prince of Bel air where that happened

It will make holidays so much easier, only 1 set of parents to celebrate with.

Not only step sister, but is the mother in law still married. If so then it's gonna be an even bigger mess.

But one less separate family home to have to visit for holidays. Nicely consolidated instead!

And your children will be their own first (step)cousins. My dad was when he was a boy and his paternal grandfather married his maternal grandmother after their respective spouses died.

I'm sure your soon-to-be stepsister will come around.

Sounds like the beginning of that song I'm my own grandpa

Well, since weddings usually take months to plan, let's hope this one is scheduled for April 1st

My actual wedding is April 1st....

When it rains, it pours.

When it pains, it roars.

What happens in this situation? Can someone explain this or does it just result in a massive family fight

My father married my oldest brother's wife's mother. All four of them live in the same house. Well one property, with a house and a "guest house" where my brother lives. APPARENTLY they all get along fine but it creeps me out to no end.

Simply put his wife will become his step sister

Well they're not really brother and sister, so I don't see the problem. Marriage never meant much to me though.

Show it anyway

Not quite #59. Step siblings are children from previous separate marriages where one of their parents gets married to one of the parents of the other. So once OP's father marries his wife's mother, he and his wife become step siblings.

and his father also becomes his father in law

It only results in a massive family fight when the parents try to force the kids to break up under the conditions that "it's wrong for siblings to be in a relationship". And yes that does happen.

That will be a fun time explaining that to your kids

Don't worry OP, family troubles can be the worst sometimes but try talking to your family about it, good luck!

That's going to be awkward. You're going to have to find a situation to see how well it goes with your wife and dad and her mom.
