No, we called ourselves an "equilateral triad" lol. Me, my (male) fiance and our wife. We were exclusive to each other, no other partners and we were all equal (you will see some poly relationships where there is a "second" relationship,) that's not how we did it. It was basically like your traditional two person relationship - but with 3, not two. We all slept in the same bed, all participated in different roles - I was more the housewife, our wife was a student (she was going to be a student and teach at the same time) and our SO worked. Together, there were 6 kids, though, so having one full time at-home parent was kind of important. Our wife committed suicide in August, 2011, so it's just us two now.
