A polyamorous ‘throuple’ have opened up about their relationship and what it’s like raising three kids between them.

Adam Lyons, Brooke Shedd, and Jane Shalakhova have been in a relationship with each other for six years. They love each other and share a bed.

Between them they are raising three kids with another on the way – Brooke has a son from a previous relationship, Brooke and Adam have a son Dante, with a baby girl on the way, and Adam and Jane have a son Orion, shares Yahoo 7.

“I guess people say that you fall in love, and I kind of just fell into this relationship. And I’m not complaining about it but it can be really hard work as well,” Adam said while speaking about their relationship on Megan Kelly’s Today show.

Brooke and Adam originally met at a night club but when they decided to start a relationship Brooke had made it clear that she did not want to give up seeing women. So Adam agreed and said the same.

Not long after they met Jane and settled down. Both Brooke and Jane identify as bisexual.

“People call us a poly-family but we just call ourselves a family. We don’t really like to put a label on it,” Adam said.

  • If everyone is happy then so be it. Not the sort of relationship that i would like but we are all different.


  • Oh my goodness, um, yeah, ok.


  • If it works for them so be it.


  • I imagine they’ve got it all figured out but it made my head hurt trying to work it out!


  • Wow, that sounds amazingly stressful but if it works for them, who are we to judge!


  • Confusing for the kids, what will it be like when they are older and bring their friends around. I think this guy will go grey very early.


  • Whatever floats their boat – hope the kids never end up getting hurt though.


  • Each to their own, what ever works for them.


  • Their choice to live in this way.


  • Wow, that could be rather confusing for the kids when they go to school. As long as they are all happy, that is the main thing.


  • Each to their own. I wonder how they explain this at school?


  • Wow, how much work would this relationship require?! It’s hard enough for 2 people to get it together and maintain


  • If it works for them, I can’t see that it’s hurting anyone.


  • Eh if it works for them, great.


  • This isn’t just kids. They did a study on women’s products and the same razors are almost twice the price when they’re women’s. Easier to get around as an adult hard to convince any kid to pick a different colour because of the price.
