Can you share sexual partners?

23 April 2015, 13:13 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - It is when three people decide to be in a relationship together. Literally together. You will wonder why it is not just called polygamy (which you and I are used to). Throuple is when you behave like a couple but with one extra person in the mix. If you live in a house, you live all the three of you. If you are going out for dinner, you make a reservation for three at the same time and on the same table. That is why is cannot be referred to a polygamy. If I may reference on a Kenyan marriage, polygamy is when, he has onewife in town C and another one in town A. Both do not cross each other’s path.

If he is to take a vacation with both the women, it is at different times and if possible in different places. Not the same place, if one wife hears the other’s name, it will ruin her constitution. On the other hand, in a throuple, all of you go together and keep each other company. If you have children, you will all raise them together in each other’s vicinity.

Now, can a throuple work in Kenya? No, we are not very civilized individuals. Is it even about civilization? I like to think, we live in glass houses but in real sense we are a people still residing in caves.

There is a reason the certain Kenyan gentleman has both or more of his women residing in different parts in the country rather than in one place. He does not want to experience them all at the same time but at different times and to suit both his and their moods. To bring all of them together will be redundant for his purposes.

Wife A is in Kajiado because when he needs a weekend fix of Nyama choma, that is where he will be and during this time, when she acts up, wife C is in and he is back to Nairobi. When she gets into certain moods and it is in that time of the month, he realizes his visit to the rural home is long overdue. This is where the hidden wife B comes in, usually it is the neighbor’s or their former house help that he got pregnant by mistake and the wife A never found out about her.

Wife C could care less because then she is the village girl. Do you see how this arrangement works so well for him? By the time the register is being ticked again, it is the women that are begging for his attention with no apologies for whatever grievances from him.

Now, try that same scenario in a throuple. Picture him telling the wife A that he got the help pregnant and she was there to stay. Then a few months down the line when he got bored with the two bickering, he brings in Wife C, who was his gacungwa at the office and he can no longer live without her.
