If Dave marries Hannah and Bob marries Sue, then Sue will be Dave's in-law but not Bob's and Hannah will be Bob's in-law but not Sue's.

Very nice...I must read these things more carefully.
I thought they were half sisters with different parents.

Your answer was WRONG!!!!

Hannah and Sue's parents are dead, and they have no other relatives.

Bob and Dave only have sister-in-laws, which are the each others wife.
