            example sentenceWhat Mr. Grantly felt we do not know and he was in a poor position, for men are always at a disadvantage in these prenuptial scenes, and Mr. Grantly had no co-father-in-law to keep him in countenance. Angela Mackail Thirkell. Happy return. Knopf, 1952.
            usage(rare) Found primarily in translation. In conversation, the generic "in-law" is generally used, with context left to disambiguate. Once grandchildren are born, the term co-grandfather may be used if the focus is on the relationship through the grandchildren rather than though the married couple. English 'co-father-in-law' and 'joint father-in-law', is a technical term^ which only ethnologists, sociologists, and the like use.
