You are in a triad and find it to be stable? I was in a mono marriage for over 30 years. We were pretty damn "stable." Supported by society, by the goverment, our families. I'd say mono relationships are the most "stable" in our culture because they are the norm.

I do think that so many couples do group relationships very poorly, which makes it all the more frustrating for those of us who very much consider the needs of all involved.
I am glad you are considering the needs of all. Generally people are more self centered.
