His wife's brother = brother in law.

Your in-laws (eg. brother-in-law) are the relatives of the person you are married to. Your marriage is "legally recognised", so we use "in-law" to show that relationship. Your direct relatives (parents, children, siblings) are your blood-relatives. So you can be related by law (marriage) or by blood (heredity).

一般没血缘的亲戚就加 in law 啊比如 son-in law 女婿,daughter-in law儿媳.
