Wife's obligation towards her husband is greater than her parents and siblings

Q: After marriage, who comes first, the husband or the wife’s brother and family?

A: The wife should fulfil the rights she owes to her husband as well as her family. However, after marriage, the wife has a greater obligation towards her husband. Hence, her husband comes first, even before her parents and siblings.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
