    The first couple are the Grandfather and the Grandmother. They have a son . the son is married. and they have 3 children: 1 son and two daughters.
    So:
    The grandfather is also father (of his son)  and his son is also a father >>> 2 fathers
    The grandmother is also a mother (of her son), and the wife of the son is also a mother >>>> 2 mothers
    The grandfather is for his son wife, a father-in-law and the grandmother is a mother-in-law to her>>> one father-in-law and one mother-in-law
    The son  has 3 children so we have >>>  4 children
    His 3 children are grandchildren to his parents. >>> 3 grandchildren
    The son has 1 boy and 2 girls so the girls have >>one brother  and the boy has >> two sisters
    The son’s wife is the daughter-in-law
