Rather, Reb Reuvain suggests that the reason why a married woman is exempt from the mitzvah of honoring her father is not because she must honor her husband, but rather because she has other obligations (she’budim) to her husband – mi’de’oraisa. These obligations do not require her to honor her husband but rather obligates her to perform certain things for him. Therefore, she cannot honor her father since she is obligated to be available for her husband. Thus, even if her husband was indeed obligated to honor his wife’s father as if it was his own father, she would nevertheless still be exempt from honoring her father – since she has other obligations that prevent her from honoring her father.
