Woman Finds Herself In A Throuple After Coworker Falls For Her And Her Partner
Polyamorous relationships, once considered taboo and shrouded in secrecy, are now being discussed more openly as society becomes more accepting of different types of love. A clinical psychologist, Dr. Nicole LePera, thewoman finds herself in a throuple after coworker falls for her and her partner.
She and her wife Lolly, are one such example, having transitioned from a couple to a throuple when their work colleague Jenna Weakland expressed her love for them both.
Dr. LePera, who had been in a monogamous relationship with her wife for seven years, admitted on the Changes podcast that she was initially "terrified" by the idea of entering into a non-monogamous relationship. However, she has since become an advocate for polyamory, praising the positive impact it has had on her life.
Dr. LePera explained how the transition came about.
Jenna sat us both down, at separate times, and said she was having romantic feelings for both of us. Never once had we talked about it, never once had I even really heard much about, you know, a more plural, or multiple type relationship.- Dr. Nicole LePera
The throuple has now been together for some time, and Weakland recently posted on Instagram to express her happiness with the arrangement.
More than a throuple, we are a family, best friends - a team. I love building life with you angels.- Dr. Nicole LePera
Dr. LePera also took to Instagram to share her thoughts on the experience, saying: "It’s expanded me spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. It’s been raw. Terrifying. Filled with joy. Filled with tears. Filled with laughs. Filled with so much humbling learning about myself and what it is to be in authentic relationship."
The relationship dynamic of a throuple is not new, and more and more people are starting to embrace it. Some celebrities, such as former heavyweight boxing champion David Haye, have publicly shared their experiences of being in a throuple. However, it's not just the rich and famous who are exploring non-monogamous relationships.
Many couples are opening up their relationships to include a third partner, or are simply becoming more open-minded about the idea. Throuples can be formed in a variety of ways, whether it's meeting someone at the gym, on holiday, or even through a one-night stand on Tinder.
Of course, not everyone is supportive of the idea of a throuple, and Dr. LePera acknowledges that it can be challenging to maintain a "delicate balance" in such a relationship. However, she also notes that some people who oppose the idea are simply "envious" of the happiness and freedom that a throuple can bring.
As society becomes more accepting of different types of relationships, it's likely that we'll continue to see more throuples and polyamorous relationships in the mainstream. While it may not be for everyone, for those who have embraced it, it has brought a sense of joy, fulfillment, and authenticity to their lives.
