Your brother and sister-in-law need to deal with their own problems in their marriage and it is no ones business but between the two of them.

Asked in Relationships, Adoption, Law & Legal Issues
Is an adopted brother called a step brother or a half brother or something else?
The law recognizes no distinction between blood or adoption. If your mother and father adopted him, he is your brother. (A "half brother" is if you and he share one parent in common only. A "step brother" is if you share no parent in common, but each of you has a parent who then marry each other.) Actually, he's your "Adoptive Brother". Butt, since you might not want to say that when referring to him, its..ok to just call him your brother. Its really no ones business.

Asked in Genealogy
What is the name of your relative by marriage?
A relative by marriage is an in-law. There are a limited number of such relationships in the English language. They are: * father-in-law (father of your spouse) * mother-in-law (mother of your spouse) * sister-in-law (sister of your spouse or wife of your brother) * brother-in-law (brother of your spouse or husband of your sister) * son-in-law (husband of your daughter) * daughter-in-law (wife of your son) Although some try to apple the "in-law" concept more broadly, these are the only ones generally accepted in the English language.

How do you say brother in Japanese?
There are many ways to say brother. Let me see if I can get most of the common ones... First of all, "nii" is essentially the word for older brother. However, it's rarely used alone except sometimes as a very friendly suffix to a name. Now... oniisan = Honorific term for an older brother. oniichan = Familiar term for an older brother. anii = Humble term for an older brother. Occasionally, the "o" is left off the first two, making it either "niisan" or "niichan". Younger brothers aren't usually referred to as brother, I don't think... but the way to say it is "oto" or "ototo". "Gutei" is also a way to say it, but whereas one use can be a humble way of wording it, another way is a vulgar way of saying "stupid younger brother", ironically! So the first two are probably the best choices; "oto" or "ototo". For your own older brother, you can call him [Ani] or [Aniki]. For someone else's older brother, you can refer to him as [Onii-san] or [Onii-chan](a bit closer). For your own little brother, you can call him [ototo], and for someone else's younger brother, call him [ototo-san]. There are three ways you will hear this most: 兄 (ani) - your older brother お兄さん (oniisan) - someone else's older brother 弟 (otouto) - younger brother
