Which is correct: sons in law or son in laws?
(P. Vanitharathnam, Pollachi)
There was a time when only ‘sons in law’ was considered correct. Nowadays, there is a tendency to add the plural form to ‘law’: hence we have ‘son in laws’, ‘mother in laws’, ‘sister in laws’, etc. Although both ‘son in laws’ and ‘sons in law’ are correct, careful users of the language still prefer the latter.
