The couple first met in Nova Scotia six years ago and were legally wed in 2011. A year after saying “I do,” they met Sebastian Tran at nightclub while searching for someone to join them in an innocent threeway.
“We never intended it to be anything serious,” Adam tells the Daily Mail. “We were certainly never planning on taking on a full-time third partner. It was just bit of sexual experimentation.”
But after brining Sebastian home, Adam and Shayne quickly realized he was more than just another notch on the bedpost.
“The three of us sat out in our back garden together, talking for hours about our lives, ambitions and dreams,” Adam recalls. “Sebastian was different to anyone we had ever met. There was something about him that Shayne and I couldn’t explain, but it was like meeting our life partner for the second time.”
Sebastian was equally as surprised by how well the three of them got along.
“At the time, I didn’t think I was ready to commit to anyone, so it was a surprise when I fell for both Adam and Shayne,” he says. “I didn’t think I wanted one boyfriend let alone two!”
As a result, Adam and Shayne decided to legally dissolve their marriage so the three of them could make a commitment to each other as a trio.
“We didn’t want Sebastian to be excluded or feel like the third wheel in our relationship,” Adam explains. “So Shayne and I decided to get a divorce so that we could make a renewed commitment between the three of us instead.”
“We’re the happiest we’ve ever been,” Shayne adds. “All our dynamics and personalities work so well in a relationship. The three of us bring out the best in each other.”
Now, the guys say they want to start a family.
“We definitely see kids in our future,” Sebastian says, “and we have a plan on how we’re going to make that happen.”
“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,” Shayne explains. “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.”
He continues: “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.”
As for people who may want to criticize their relationship or who feel it’s counter-productive to the fight for LGBTQ rights, they trio says they really don’t care.
“Love is love,” Adam explains. “It should be multiplied not divided. It shouldn’t matter if you’re in a three-way or a four-way relationship.”
