I'll hazard a guess that the majority of those nine, or even all, are accidental triads. I have never known a Unicorn Hunting couple to find someone for longer than a few months.
People new to Poly, when the wife only recently comes out as bisexual often think they invented the idea of a triad and naively start looking without researching how feasible it is. I have a statistic from my Polygamy/Poly-fi site where I hang around, we have thousands of members now. I did a poll of
couples just between the ages of 20-50 on the site, 50% (almost exactly) were looking for a Unicorn. I did the same with the singles, only 10% were looking to be one.
Couples do not realise how unlikely it is to happen.
