All three grew up close together in the Seattle area, but didn’t meet until adulthood.

Justin met Claire, a marketing executive, in college in 2004, and the pair became best friends instantly.

In 2006, he met Katy on one of his comedy shows and noticed they had a spark right away, so they started dating right away.

In 2013, Katy and Justin tied the knot and were open from the start about what they hoped to get out of their marriage – which, as it turned out, included Justin’s boyfriend Claire.

Claire explains: “Shortly after they got married, they had an open discussion about what they wanted in their partnership.

The topic of Katy’s sexuality led them to talk about me – the friend she was attracted to on Justin’s social media posts.

“After years of discussion, they finally decided to contact me. Katy and Justin wanted to make sure their feelings didn’t ruin the friendship they had with me, especially if the attraction wasn’t mutual,” she continued.

“It was a surprise at first, because I had never been approached like this before,” Claire admitted. “Nevertheless, the surprise was welcome, because I’ve always had feelings for both men and women.

“I never knew it was a possibility, but the friendship Justin and I had and my attraction to them both made it exciting — we fell in love instantly.”

In the beginning Justin and Katy lived in LA and Claire in Seattle, so they were in a long distance relationship. But after two years, Claire said she “couldn’t handle the distance,” so they all moved in together in LA.

For the trio, being in a polyamorous relationship is about teamwork. They share love, goals, and personality traits.

“We are never alone unless we want to and we discuss decisions as a unit,” Claire said.

“Sometimes the two of us share a hobby and one of us doesn’t – but this allows everyone to enjoy their own activities with someone who loves them as much as they do.”

Communication is paramount to the throuple. They are able to discuss decisions as a unit and support each other in personal endeavours, and they feel happy to be in a relationship where they love each other equally.

“If someone is experiencing hardship there is always a support team and we want people to see that our relationship is working for who we are and we don’t push for others to be like us, but rather see us as no different,” Claire said. .

“As humans, we are able to fully love multiple people without diminishing the love we have for one person and we are extremely lucky to have found each other.

“We’re proud of our partnership and want to let others know that you don’t have to be ashamed to just love people.”

Luckily for the trio, their family and friends are hugely supportive of their relationship and love to see them happy together.

“Sometimes it feels like we’re at summer camp with our best friends, except we’re adults with money now,” Claire said.

“We are very blessed to have a supportive family unit because when they see us together they say it just makes sense.”

They also have a large fan base online and usually get positive comments about their relationship.

“A lot of people who know me online say, ‘Oh yeah, this makes sense to you,’ but most of the responses have been positive and supportive,” she said.

However, there have been a few snide remarks, including homophobic slander and trolls saying, “You’re ruining the sanctity of marriage.” But the trio choose to ignore these people and accept that they have no control over how other people see their relationship.

“Usually those who aren’t so nice are from anonymous pages, meaning they just want to express anger, which is what you can expect with anything on the internet,” Claire said.

It’s easy to let negativity roll off our backs because we’re in love and this creates quite the protective barrier for strangers online

“There are the occasional heads and cat comments from men, but you can’t control other people or how they feel and we enjoy each other’s company so much that we won’t let it bother us.”

Although they sometimes have feelings of jealousy, they trust each other completely and immediately share these feelings, and talk about them as a group.

“Jealousy is a human emotion and we’d be lying if we said it wasn’t. If and when it happens, we share it immediately and talk about it as a group, never denying any emotion,” Claire said.

“We trust each other and that’s the only way to make a relationship work — if you really feel accepted by your partner(s), simple feelings like attraction and separation anxiety aren’t so scary.”

For the future, they hope to pursue their dreams together and are excited about the coming years.

Currently, the trio works together from home and keeps their schedule on a calendar, where they constantly talk to each other about their feelings, desires and the direction they are going.

She also shared a post for those who feel uncomfortable opening up about unconventional relationships.

“If you’re ashamed of who you are or who you love, know that there are people like you and you’re not alone,” she said.

“Love is putting someone’s well-being above yours, so never let anyone’s self doubt and fear dictate who you want to be – follow your heart and be honest with yourself.”
