    cousin in law

    Hello, this is my cousin's husband. Can I call him cousin-in-law?
    What do you usually call a person who is your far relative this way?

    Re: cousin in law

    We don't have any special terms for such people. They are simply our cousins' husbands and wives. The only in-laws we specifically name are: mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in-law and sister-in-law.
