I don't have any advice or experience, but I have read a few stories over the last decade of quads that weren't two couples. I don't recall any horror stories about it, and I imagine some ways it could be easier, as often in "two couple quads" if one relationship ends the whole thing implodes.

GalaGirl has great points about discussing with everybody about what would happen if a breakup of some sort happens - I think in traditional quads both couples talk about this among themselves but not with the other parties, and that also seems to cause issues when everybody isn't on the same page when a problem actually happens.

Sheesh not to dwell on breaking up - I think what you have going on sounds nice, and has great potential for joy. I'd imagine there were better odds when the relationship isn't US and THEM.
