It means either your spouse's relatives or people who married your relatives. So: father in-law - your husband's/wife's father sister in-law - your husband's/wife's sister OR your brother's/sister's wife (and I've heard people use it for their spouse's sibling's wife - though that's not technically correct). People will also refer to their spouse's relatives as "my in-laws."
