Default Longest lasting triad

We just reached a one year milestone in our triad. While there have some rough patches I consider this a milestone. It made me wonder who has the longest lasting continual triad relationship on this fourm? Not that its good or bad just curious.

Wow! Hats off to each of you for achieving that 1 Year benchmark and beyond! Although my Triad has yet to reach such a prestigious and much revered level, I must say that we have the proper ingredients and a firm foundation to one day soon, have the same bragging rights and announce our very proud ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!

Keep Up The Good Work,
From: all THREE of us

We have made it to ten months so far. Randi, Jenny, and I love each other very much and are committed to making it last. We definitely have our challenges, a lot of struggle with balance and some possessiveness, but we communicate very well and so far so good. Congrats to you and to all of you working for successful triads!!!

Default Longevity of relationships

The secondary thread has me wondering if the majority of relationships do only last 2.5-5 years. I know there is one member who had a relationship last much longer but what about anyone else? If you have what do you think the reason was? If not, why? Are the ones that last longer those who share the things all primaries would share?

That's an interesting question. Of the people I know who are poly, most of the relationships don't last more than 5 years.
Of the very few people I know who do, they tend to operate as a single family unit.
But-that's only my own observation which is VERY limited.

I know some that are 5+ and some that busted well before 5.

Given that monogamous marriages also that 4 or 7 year itch thing I am not surprised polyships also have it or a form of it. Some polyships make it through and some do not.
