@Topic.No, Why? undecided
Even self, it's like this: let's assume that u hav a twin bro/sis who happens to marry another twin of opposite sex. If u urself also happens to fall for the twin bro/sis of ur twin sibling, I mean, what's wrong with that? undecided
Re: Is It A Taboo To Marry Your Sister-in-law by oge4real(f): 12:53pm On Aug 24, 2009
No, it is not a taboo.
Re: Is It A Taboo To Marry Your Sister-in-law by Cherechy(f): 1:35pm On Aug 24, 2009
If one man can marry two sister's why not? I've seen a neighbour do it. Two sister's married two brothers. No qualms. Though they had to convert to muslims sha. They married muslim brothers.
Re: Is It A Taboo To Marry Your Sister-in-law by Oluschenco(m): 2:27pm On Aug 24, 2009
No, its not
I am really in-love with my ex-GF's sister, but my fear is if her sister wouldn't fire up.
I see nothing bad in it.
Re: Is It A Taboo To Marry Your Sister-in-law by galatico(m): 2:29pm On Aug 24, 2009
I don't think it's a Taboo, cause you're not related!!!
Re: Is It A Taboo To Marry Your Sister-in-law by Nezan(m): 3:00pm On Aug 24, 2009
It is a taboo, depending on your cultural believes, BTW, it is a taboo in Tiv land.

Not true at all. Which part of Igboland are you from sef? I personally know 2 guys who married their sister-in-law i.e. brother's wife younger sister. As long the couple are not BIOLOGICALLY related, there is no impediment to their marrying each other.
Re: Is It A Taboo To Marry Your Sister-in-law by Amjustme: 5:00pm On Aug 24, 2009
Well i think there should not be anything wrong but marriage involves ur families too so its not entirely what u believe.

BUT my mum and her sister, married my dad and his first cousin.
Re: Is It A Taboo To Marry Your Sister-in-law by sexyfish(f): 5:12pm On Aug 24, 2009
YES, it is a taboo.Find love somewhere else. shocked
Re: Is It A Taboo To Marry Your Sister-in-law by xtianh(m): 5:26pm On Aug 24, 2009
I think marrying a sister in law is not a taboo, cuz u are not biologically related and what more,
Re: Is It A Taboo To Marry Your Sister-in-law by sherrylo: 5:27pm On Aug 24, 2009

Re: Is It A Taboo To Marry Your Sister-in-law by kok(m): 5:57pm On Aug 24, 2009

Your brother's wife is your sister-in-law.
Your brothers wife's sister is your brother's sister-in-law, NOT YOURS.

So can you marry your brothers wife's sister? - YES
She's not your blood relation!

Kapish.
