Is there something written in the bible about a woman marring her brother-in-law?  Can some one give me the chapter and verse?  Please help, Silver

Nope, there isn't... at least not to my knowledge...

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.  
Is that fair?  Nope.
Does it even make sense?  Not really.

Another thing I think is that callling your sibling's spouse's brother your brother in law is a cultural thing as much as anything.  They could just as easily be called your
second-cousin-twice-removed-in-law.

Trust me, when it comes to selecting marital partners, a brother-in-law is in no way, shape, or form the same thing as a brother.

So if you were considering something like this my advice is to not worry about it, and if you know someone who is, I would tell them not to worry about it.
