Man with wife and girlfriend says other men are ‘envious’ of ‘throuple’
A married couple and their girlfriend claim other men are envious of their three-way relationship.
Civil engineer, Michael Taylor and wife yoga instructor, Lauren, married in 2016, but last June they met Jessica Woodstock by chance at a Gryffin gig and all three have been together ever since.
Michael, Lauren and Jessica, all 30, view their relationship as three people in love equally, not two people together, plus one additional person.
Their families have all accepted their relationship and sexuality but the 'throuple' say when they are out in public they are greeted with looks of confusion from people.
Civil engineer, Michael Taylor said: "Jess has been polyamorous most of her adult life.
"Lauren and I were monogamous for seven years but were in search for an enhancement to the relationship. We each had more love to give than just to each other.
"We all have equal responsibilities to care for ourselves and each other.
"Although our triad is predominantly the three of us, there are three additional relationships that need recognition: Michael and Lauren, Michael and Jess, Lauren and Jess.
"Three equal parts with equal responsibilities.
"We have a running joke for when we leave the house – if one of us forgets something, it's almost guaranteed that one of the others will remember to grab it.
"Each of us shines separately as individuals and come together for the same purpose. We push each other to better ourselves and to pursue our passion.
Michael, Lauren and Jessica plan to get married one day and as union between three people isn't legal in the USA, they're looking to travel to Thailand or Indonesia to get married and they plan to extend their family through having kids of their own or adopting.
Jessica added: "People are generally confused but intrigued to know more about the relationship.
"Most reactions are quite comical, and the questions start to pour in. Men, especially, are excited and envious.
"Here are a few initial questions we receive from those who have never encountered something like this in person: 'Who sleeps in the middle?', 'Who controls the thermostat?', 'How did you all meet?', 'Who wears the pants?', 'Do you plan on getting married or having kids?', and, 'Do you go on separate date nights?'
"The key to this is to always be yourself, don't hold back your wants and needs, and prevent resentment.
"It's also important to create foundational relationships like the three separate ones we share.
"A triad is a delicate balance."
