Have you ever heard about the polyamorous relationship? Well, like any other relationship, it is complicated.
Life is full of surprises and you don’t know what is in there on the other side of the door.
Chris Brandt and his husband Matt, are married for the past six years. It is after six years that they made their relationship open. Today, they are in a polyamorous relationship with a woman named Cait. Sounds weird right? Well, they prefer themselves as a ‘throuple’, a mixture of three and couple.
For starters, Matt wasn’t sure about the idea of three people sharing the same relationship. It was difficult for the three of us, said Chris. Sharing the same apartment, bedroom, and everything, it wasn’t easy. However, the trio made the relationship work.
It has been two years now and they are still living together without any issues and have adopted two dogs. In an interview, Chris said that getting an agreement form Matt was not easy, but after talking through it, he agreed upon the three of them living together.
It started with them all spending time together and there came a time when Cait was spending more of her time in their apartment. This was the moment when they realized that it is better to start living together.
They eventually started living together. Chris and Cait were identified as bisexuals and they have admitted that they have dated people of the opposite sex. Matt, on the other hand, identifies himself as homoflexible. That is, he is open to women but prefers men.
Chris said that after experiencing a sexual encounter with a woman, he realized that it is another connection, another body and another soul that he can have. Cait, on the other hand, said that the decision making was a lot tougher than she ever thought. The idea of being called a ‘throuple’ was not very interesting, said Cait.
During the initial stages, she was struggling with jealousy. Chris was spending time with both Cait and Matt and this made her feel a little insecure. She said that she and Chris were sharing a strong connection and idea of sharing him with Matt was not great.
Cait continued, ‘the feeling of insecurity was piling up on me and I was struggling to find out my real place in this relationship.’ It was not easy for the three of them, but gradually they become used to each other and two years have passed and they are still living together.
Their relationship has grown to an extent that they are even planning on to adopt a child.
