A married gay couple is divorcing in order to legally bring a third man into their relationship.
Adam Grant and Shayne Curran, from Nova Scotia, Canada, tied the knot in 2011 after dating for more than two years but decided to divorce after they both fell in love with Sebastian Tran in September 2012.
The couple met Tran at a nightclub and immediately hit it off. They decided to end their marriage so they could make a commitment to each other as a threesome.
The throuple, who all happen to work in the medical profession, now live as one happy family and plan to raise children someday, with help from Seb’s and Shayne’s sisters who will act as surrogates and egg donors.
Daily Mail adds:
None of the men has ever been in a polyamorous relationship before.
Shayne, 29, who is a medical administration student, said: ‘We’re the happiest we’ve ever been – all our dynamics and personalities work so well in a relationship. The three of us bring out the best in each other.’
Adam, a 27-year-old nursing student, added: ‘We didn’t want Sebastian to be excluded or feel like the third wheel in our relationship.
‘So Shayne and I decided to get a divorce so that we could make a renewed commitment between the three of us instead.
‘We want to make sure that we’re all equally bound and obligated to each other in marriage.’
This was the first polyamorous relationship that Adam and Shayne had been in too and they had some initial concerns about the arrangement.
Shayne explained: ‘Before I met Sebastian, Adam and I had never been in a serious three-way relationship before so it was new territory for us.
‘Initially, we did struggle with our feelings for Sebastian and we had some concerns about how our relationship would all work.
‘I felt awful when I began to feel jealous at the thought of Sebastian being with another guy. It felt wrong to be envious of Sebastian when I still loved Adam.
‘And I didn’t want to fall in love with Sebastian and hurt my relationship with Adam. But after speaking to Adam, we both realised that we both felt the same way about him.
‘If anything, Sebastian only enhanced our relationship.’
After two months of dating, it became obvious that love had blossomed between the trio and they moved in with Sebastian.
Sebastian said: ‘It just seemed like the natural path for us, we just realised what we were. Together as a threesome, we were all complete.
‘We never really had the conversation of let’s all be together as a couple. It just sort of happened.’
The threesome have been living together for more than three years now and are happier than ever.
