Hi Spidy,

If you aren't taking on another romantic love and are monogamous then having a triad or quad isn't really going to work. Both relationship dynamics come with the idea of you having physical intimacy with some one other than your boyfriend.
It looks like you would be ok in a "V" with your husband as the hinge and possible an extended family through his partnership.

You don't "have" to be poly to be with a partner who is.

Take care
