“It’s funny how it needs so much explaining when it’s not a standard monogamous family. The patriarchal concept of heterosexual marriages is so ingrained that those relationships and families immediately make sense to everyone.”

“But with us? There are terms like ‘alternative family’ and ‘polycule’, which, although labels, do matter because they are a starting step towards having people recognize that this is a unit built on love and respect, the same as anyone else’s. We are a family,” told Ashish to Vogue.

Ashish shared a “throuple couple” indeed faces many problems. “There is no official document that recognizes all three of us as each other’s next of kin, we can’t make decisions equally for each other during medical emergencies, and there will always be only one or at best two names on our rental agreements.”

Before meeting the married couple, Tanisha recently got out of a long-distance relationship in 2017. She never anticipated that a relationship like this would ever come into her life, but then it did.

She says, “Home is not where a husband or wife awaits me. Home is what I built with my best friends, my partners in love and joy, where I will age with them with pride and dignity, with or without the right paperwork.” she further adds that “I realized that maybe polyamory would be more supportive of my mental health needs.”

Shweta claims that marrying Ashish was always the right choice. However, they clicked and got along well when she met Tanisha. She says their feelings for one another grew organically.

Shweta told The Established, “We were both clear that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. So, it was never the lack of something that I was experiencing with Ashish that I wanted to seek in other places. It was simply about exploring newer connections.”

These people prove that love is love. What is your take on such relationships?
