That's good that your son had a relationship with his dad's family, Captains wife. It makes perfect sense in that case.

I've got inlaws galore. My LH had 10 brothers and sisters. I still hang out with them and call them inlaws.

I do a really lousy job of using the term late husband... I guess I confuse some people.

Maybe it will change if I have present husband and a late husband but right at the moment I've only had one husband so  guess in my mind I don't need an adjective to clarify which husband I'm talking about.

I do call them my in-laws, they still are and they always will be a part of my life, and my kids lives. My LW has a large family and I am close with them, even though most of them live 800 miles away. I was invited to and attended their family reunion this summer. I use the term late wife more often than not nowadays but, it is, what it is, I guess.
