Is polygamy now becoming acceptable in American society? Three lesbian women in Massachusetts recently “married” each other after exchanging vows in a wedding-style ceremony last year. They claim they are the world’s first “throuple.”
Although Massachusetts recognizes same-sex marriages, the state does not recognize polygamous ones. Nevertheless, the three women named Brynn, Doll, and Kitten still entered into the three-way relationship. Brynn told The Sun newspaper: “In our eyes we are married.We had specialist lawyers draw up paperwork so our assets are equally divided.”
Doll says, “As far as we know, there aren’t any three women married like us.” Doll has considered herself polygamous since high school. She said, “I had always dated girls, who—although they had boyfriends or girlfriends—were also allowed to date me. I never thought that much about it and I had never really come out as poly to my friends and family. To me, it was just how I was.”
Brynn insists that, despite their novel lifestyle arrangement, that they are “very traditional people” and “perfectly normal.” The three women would also like to raise three children using anonymous sperm donors-one for each them.
Massachusetts officials will allow the “throuple” arrangement to stand without interference.
