In Breaking Dawn, Jacob imprints on Renesmee, which means that he falls in love with her, committing fully to being her protector, and later when she is grown, her partner. This aspect of the novel has made it controversial, understandably. Jacob is seventeen or so years older than Renesmee, but he will cease aging as long as he is a werewolf, and when Renesmee ages to a certain year, she will stop aging as well, so the match will work. If Renesmee and Jacob marry, which is very probable, then yes, Jacob would become Bella and Edward's son-in-law. Strange, I know.
