Lyons was dubbed the “luckiest man alive” two years ago because, you know, he lives with two girlfriends. The trio share everything – their house, their parenting responsibilities, their king-size bed (which they admit can get “a bit hot and sweaty with so many people in the bed”)– and claim life couldn’t be better.
It’s not just Lyons who thinks he’s found the perfect life. Even the mother-to-be, Jane, said that she would have never even considered kids unless she had discovered the “throuple” life.
“When I had boyfriends before, I never wanted or cared about kids,” she said, “With three parents, we can still have a social life, make time for one another and share the parenting tasks so you don’t end up like the typical sleep-deprived mom! With two partners, there’s so much help and I’ll never have to leave my kids with someone I don’t trust.”
So there you go, a “throuple” success story. Are we saying you should run home and pitch the idea to your girlfriend? Probably not, but, you know, choice is yours.
