Meet the three gay men who want to get married and have kids together
A trio of Canadian men who are in a three-way relationship have caused a storm by saying they plan to have kids together.
27-year-old Adam Grant was married to Shayne Curran since 2011 – but the pair decided to divorce last year.
It wasn’t because they had grown apart, however – but because a third man, Sebatian Tran, had joined their relationship.
The Nova Scotia threesome have been living together since 2012 – but they didn’t feel right with just two of them being married.
Adam, 27, told the Mail: “We didn’t want Sebastian to be excluded or feel like the third wheel in our relationship.
“So Shayne and I decided to get a divorce so that we could make a renewed commitment between the three of us instead.
“We want to make sure that we’re all equally bound and obligated to each other in marriage.”
Shayne, 29, added: “We’re the happiest we’ve ever been – all our dynamics and personalities work so well in a relationship. The three of us bring out the best in each other.
“We all sleep in a king size bed together – it’s necessary when there’s three people in a relationship as well as two dogs who end up getting into your bed!”
The throuple have also spoken about their plans to have children.
Shayne explained: “We want to mix our genes enough so that our kids are as genetically close to us as possible. But, we are open to adoption too. Children are a huge part of our future plans.
“I have two sisters who have both offered to carry our children for us as surrogates and are willing to donate their eggs as well. My sisters actually argue over which one them will carry our baby first – I feel very lucky!
“Meanwhile Sebastian’s sister will probably donate her eggs too so we can keep it in the family.
“We want to mix our genes enough so that our kids are as genetically close to us as possible. But, we are open to adoption too.
“Children are a huge part of our future plans.”
Predictably, Daily Mail commenters didn’t take the story well.
One highly-rated comment ranted: “I don’t understand how this is considered acceptable so SO many reasons including all the psychological studies stating children need both a male AND a female role model parent. What ever happened to those studies? Were they just bonkers?”
