Triad n 1: any three person lovestyle. 2: three people involved in some way; most often used in a committed sense; in some cases involving ceremonies of commitment 3 : a union or group of three usu. closely related persons or things
I guess we were looking for the commitment, mental, financial, & emotional involvement then. As far as the guys feeling a type of family love for each other since we wanted to create a family.
