Chris Brandt and his husband were married for six years before they made their relationship open. The two men are now in a polyamorous relationship with Cait in the mix as well and often refer to themselves as a ‘throuple,’ (mix of ‘three’ and ‘couple.’) But originally, Matt wasn’t so open to the idea of sharing his husband.
But despite those initial challenges, the trio now lives together, sharing a bed in a one-bedroom apartment.
They have been living together for two years now and even have two dogs as well!
During an interview on Barcroft TV, Chris said: ‘at first Matt was completely opposed to the idea but after a while, we talked about it and he warmed up to it.’
‘The three of us started to spend more and more time together and after about seven or eight months she was staying over five nights a week.’
After that, the trio basically started living together. Cait and Chris identify as bisexual and both have dated people of the opposite sex before.
But Matt identifies as something a little more different. ‘I’m homoflexible so I like guys and I’m open, flexible to women – I prefer men.’
He went on ‘I guess I had an awakening after I had a sexual experience with a woman. It is just another body, another soul, a connection that I can have.’
And Cait described how the whole ‘throuple’ idea was initially tough for her as well. ‘When we first got together I was struggling with the jealousy. With having a very strong connection with Chris and sometimes feeling frustrated that I would have to split time with Matt.’
‘But with a lot of that came a lot of insecurity, because I didn’t know where my place was in the relationship.’
Despite the challenges, the polyamorous couple has been together for over 2 years now and even has plans of adopting a child!
