Wedding preparations

Peter is single but he is going to marry Janet. They are planning their wedding day with Peter’s and Janet’s family. Most of Peter’s family are there, his mother, father, brother and his sister. From Janet’s family, she has her mother, father and brother.

Peter introduces his family to Janet’s family. Peter says "this is my father Jim, my mother Susie, my brother Mark and my sister Jenny." Janet then says "I’d like to introduce you to my family. This is my father Jim, my mother Ruth and my brother Dave."

Everyone is playing a game of “Who’s who?” They are trying to find out who is related to whom. Peter’s father, Jim, starts by saying “Janet you are going to be my daughter-in-law. "And you will be my father-in-law," says Janet. She adds, "I’m going to have a mother-in-law, Susie, and a brother and sister-in-law, Jenny and Mark." Fred, Janet’s father, then says, "I’m very happy to have in-laws, but I’m especially glad to have Peter as my son-in-law."
