Alright, well the title says it all. I'm constantly telling people about new bands and I often hear "Where'd you hear of this band?" and I have to say my cousin's husband. But that sounds so...rigid. Is there an official term for that?
And I know that it's not second cousin, because that's something else.

Cousin in Law?

If it was your brother/sister, it'd be brother/sister in law, right?

I just say cousin. He's pretty much family at this point anyway.

I didn't actually realise 'cousin-in-law' was a real term.
I've said that one a few times, but wasn't sure if it was a real term at all.

It may well not be, but it makes a certain logical sense.....

EDIT:

Quote by Wiki Article
A cousin-in-law is the spouse of an individual's cousin, similarly the cousin of an individual's spouse, e.g. Owen Henderson will become a cousin-in-law with Nigel Gumbleton when he marries Nigel's cousin, Cerys Baldwin.


Although, what the ****'s with those names? John Smith not good enough?

no it doesn't

your brother-in-law is your wife's brother

therefore, your cousin-in-law would be your wife's cousin, which is not the case here

Oh it sort of makes sense, yeah, but I wasn't sure if it was proper.

And I thought the same ****ing thing when I Googled. They're stupid names to use in an example, unless you're Welsh enough to know the name 'Cerys'.

But you would also be HIS brother-in-law. It works both ways. Does that make sense?

yeah that works, but that would make TS the cousin-in-law of the other guy, not the other way round

and that's not what TS wanted to know

Yeah it would - that's my point, the term works both ways, both for your sibling's spouse and your spouse's sibling, and therefore for both your cousin's spouse and your spouse's cousin.

Shag buddies? Is that a relation?
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

i believe "fair game" is the correct term.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
