But when you think about it, there's nothing wrong with it. A brother-in-law isn't really a brother at all. You can clearly see by the children with birth defects that sibling marriage is unnatural, but this isn't the case with a brother-in-law.
And another thing to think about - say a woman is dating a man, and her sister is dating his brother, and they want to marry their respective partners. If one couple marries before the other one, even if it takes place only seconds before, then the first couple is fine but, if there were rules against marrying in-laws, the second couple would be considered sinners.
