in-laws

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'her husband's family' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.

'lin was going around' is the wordplay.
'going around' indicates anagramming the letters.
'lin'+'was'='linwas'
'linwas' with letters rearranged gives 'IN-LAWS'.

'to' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for in-laws that I've seen before include "A person's relatives by marriage" , "Relations by marriage" , "Spouse's relations" , "Christmas is when you might bid them welcome" , "Relatives by marriage 2-4)" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
