  1. Is it technically incest if she’s your sister-in-law? She would either be his wife’s sister or his brother’s wife, neither of which makes her his blood relation. Creepy for sure, but I’m not sure I would call it incest.

    • Technically? Probably not. I suppose I was applying the Woody Allen standard.
