I don't generally list the names of spouses' parents, although I have them noted

I have always added the names of spouses when available. In-laws can indeed
provide a great deal of detail on your own family and provide even a single clue
that can allow you to find that elusive distant cousin. I take this notion
possibly to another extreme and have researched siblings of in-laws (not on a
regular basis, but where it's available to further a family branch). This has been
very successful in extending my own (or my wife's) family tree. Leave no rock
unturned.
