Are the husband and the wife RELATIVES or not?

In a way, they ARE NOT relatives, cose if they get divorced, nothing directly connects them anymore! (besides good or bad memories of course).

On the other hand, they MUST BE relatives, cose they make their own relatives become relatives between themselves..

Supposely I am married:

So, if my husband IS NOT my relative, why am I relative with his sister?

But, if my husband IS my relative... then... OMG, I married my relative!

Update:

Question is:

Are they RELATIVES, not are they RELATED :)

    You are NOT related by blood to your husband's sister, but by marriage.

    You are not related to your husband by blood, but by marriage.

    You are not related to your husband's children (by a previous relationship) by blood, but by marriage and adoption.

    You can make this as complicated as you want.

    Truth is, you can not marry someone that you are too closely related to.

    The be conscious relative skill on the subject rely of-which skill blood line or genetic correct, in maximum reasons they are no longer correct (different than in step with probability over some generations). although, in some close nit communities kin would "intermarry". First cousin marriage and closer are no longer sociably usual in maximum socialites.

    Married couples are related by marriage (law) not by blood. That's the difference. When the legal relationship ends between them, so it ends between them and their in-laws as well (unless they choose to remain friends).

    You are always related to your blood kin, no matter what happens.
