I married my high school sweetheart but we’re now in a throuple after I fell in love with a woman while lingerie shopping – The Sun

SCHOOL sweethearts who were together for 17 years before inviting another woman into their relationship say their marriage is stronger as a “thruple”.

Simon, 31, and Jodie Reynolds, 30, from Perth, Australia, tied the knot in 2012 after meeting in school ten years before.

Seven years after they got married, Jodie realised she was attracted to another woman, Natasha Bee, 31.

After Jodie was “drawn to her energy” while shopping for lingerie, the pair struck up a friendship, and soon after was introduced to husband Simon.

Although they started as friends, in January 2019 they admitted they had feelings for each other and became a polyamorous triad.

The threesome may be happy, but engineer Simon admits that is hasn’t been plain-sailing, and there has been some jealously in their relationship.


He said: “It can be very difficult when people are searching for a person to fit into their relationship like this.

“We never wanted Tash to change to fit a role we were trying to fill but instead to mould all our relationships around each of us individually.

“We consider ourselves to have four distinct relationships; Simon and Jodie, Jodie and Tash, Tash and Simon and the three of us.

“Each of these relationships need nurturing and their own time.

“Jodie and I have been together for more of our lives than we have been apart, and neither of us have ever known a relationship with anybody else.

“This definitely causes some high emotions at times; we have all experienced jealousy and it takes a lot of communication and reassurance to overcome these feelings.”


Simon said the relationship had started when his wife had struck up an instant connection with sales assistant Natasha.

He said: “Tash has a knack for empowering women and lifting them up to make them feel beautiful.

“After a few visits, I came in to the store and we all became friends. Tash has said that she fell in love with our relationship first, and the adoration and respect she could see between us.

“When we met Tash and developed feelings it was a scary time, but the feelings we all had and how well we flowed together couldn't be ignored.”

We consider ourselves to have four distinct relationships; Simon and Jodie, Jodie and Tash, Tash and Simon and the three of us.


The throuple have ‘come out’ to their family and friends, who have mostly accepted their relationship.

He said: “We think the best thing about our relationship is that it all happened so organically, Jodie and I had actually discussed this type of relationship before and decided it wasn’t something we wanted.

“Polyamory has opened our eyes to another way of living, it has changed the way that we see relationships and love.

When we met Tash and developed feelings it was a scary time, but the feelings we all had and how well we flowed together couldn't be ignored.

“We now realise that the ‘normal’ monogamy view has nothing to do with our evolution and humanity, but it is rather a social construct that does not have to be the end game for relationships.

“We’ve found that since entering this relationship we have more love and support around us and our families and can only see that as a positive.

“We don’t believe that this type of relationship is for everyone, but our philosophy is that life is too short and that we should all do what makes us happy as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone.”


They are now discussing moving in together in the future and while they have had their ups and downs, they have never been happier as a threesome.

He said: “We are discussing our options to live together; logistically it will take time to get to that point. Other than that, our plan for the future is to all be happy together for as long as possible and make this work.

“There is no ‘normal’, every monogamous relationship is different to each other, as are poly relationships, that’s what happens when every person is different.

“We don’t believe in judging people for anything but their deeds and how they treat others.

"We love to open people’s minds to alternate relationships and educating people about how our relationship works and that there are no societal norms that people must adhere to.”

Meanwhile, polyamorous ‘throuple’ have sex as a threesome… and now they want to get married and have children together.

And a triad claim their three-way romance teaches son, 7, what an ‘honest relationship’ looks like.
