    I got a BIL… but he got two brothers-in-law and two step-sisters-in-law (plus one of their husbands)! I think his family grew a lot more than mine did. 🙂

    I have 3 siblings so through them I will maybe get 1 BIL and 2 SILs since I was the first to get married. DH has 1 B(IL for me) and he is married so 1 SIL there unless your of the camp where I am supposed to say she is my BIL’s wife. 🙂

    Oh, I think I missed one and said three brothers/two sisters.  I will be gaining one brother in law, two step-brothers in law, one half brother in law, one sister-in-law and one step-sister-in-law.  Three of the brothers and one sister are about the same age as me, the SIL is about 10 years younger, and the half-BIL is about 20 years younger. (the crazy thing is the 20 year younger half brother?  from his Mom’s remarriage, not his Dad’s.)

    I will gain 2 brothers-in-law and 2 sisters-in-law (that includes one brother’s wife). But when we get married, he’ll gain 4 BILs, and 2 SILs, and none of my siblings are married yet!!

    So complicated I couldn’t even vote!

    One BIL and SIL (DHs half brother) that we see often and live near.

    Two BILs that are also half brothers, that I just met for the first time and DH hadn’t seen in 15 years!  They were raised far apart and only saw eachother during childhood summers.  Both are single.

    Two additional BILs in-law with DH’s dad’s current wife.  (Met one for 1st time when I met the other 2). One single, one engaged.

    I am getting one BIL (his 1/2 bro).

    He is gaining 1 BIL & 1 SIL (my bro and 1/2 sis).

    (ETA: my sis has a husband, so I guess my partner is getting 2 BILs)

    My DH just has one sister so I got one SIL.  I have both a sister and a brother so he got a SIL and a BIL.  None of our siblings are married but eventually more ILs will be added to the family (I hope!)

    I’ll gain 1 BIL & 1 SIL.  I’m the youngest of 4 children (with 3 older brothers), so it’ll be fun to have a little brother finally! Not that he’s little lol… he’s 21.  FSIL is my age, so that’s fun, too. =)  FH will gain 3 BIL, 2 SIL, & a niece (two of my brothers were married in the past 2 years and one just had a baby in September… my family is growing like crazy lately!).
