Default 3 way marriage, what is it called?

1 man & 2 women that love each other equally, and are loyal to each other in a 3 way marriage?

I am curious does this have a name? Does it fit under polyamory? Basically Polygamy but the 2 wives would love each other too. Is this fairly common?

It is very awkward to proceed since it's so taboo.

It's called illegal in most countries. But in poly circles, that would be called a Triad. Here is a link to our glossary: Glossary and Definitions

Why not get familiar with some of the resources we have here? There is a Golden Nuggets forum you should checkout for a wealth of helpful threads.
