The inlaws or "outlaws"

 
I married a man that is the oldest of 10. Here is a picture of all of us in laws at the most recent family wedding. We did this picture by marriage order...in other words...when you married into the family...I am the first (#1) daughter in law -and as it works out...the oldest in law.....by 3 months....#5's wife is only a few months younger than I am(she is in the pink dress) and we are both the same age as brother # 6....tells you I married an older man! We constantly tell each other that all 10 of the kids had the good taste to marry well! This is our Mother-in-law with us and we all agree we have the best MIL ever.(For those of you that can count.....sister #2 was actually married first but that marriage ended after 25 years in a divorce and brother # 7's wife was unable to come in from Singapore).We are a very International family--In order from me.....I am from West Virginia, K- Maryland, B-Chicago, O-Beijing, K-New York, G-Shanghai, S-Indiana, and J-from Germany (L-who was unable to come in from Singapore...is from London via Vietnam)....All 10 accounted for! OK Mom....did you keep up? I apologize for the picture as it is not very good quality....

And in acouple of years (we are of course all still blogging!), we can get a nice picture of your respective kids and their in- or outlaws! I understand you have three kids... and with ten original couples it will make a nice group photo!

No, I cannot keep up! I know some but not all, if I've met them 20 yrs ago, I apologize for my memory lapse!

A very good-looking group of people, by the way.

It seems to me the most nice, happier and friendly is the one on the left... Can't tell why :):)hehehee...
After reading your post I thought: is this a family or the U.N?
It's one of the things I admire in USA and Canada, for instance... the melting pot. Not common here in Portugal.

That would be West "BY GOD" Virginia! Kind of unusual to have a family picture of just the "in laws."
