As far as the terminology, yes, Vee would be a more accurate term than Triad.

He lives 5 hours away, so it's not like she can just go spend time with (that and other complications too). When he visits us, they typically spend some alone time together while I'm at work or what-not, but honestly, my imagination does terrible things to me. I am still not comfortable with their relationship, and the im-balance causes me angst (to put it mildly). So...yeah...
