Polyamorous couple reveal what it’s really like to be in a marriage where they allow each other to sleep with other people



22 years ago, Carl and Kenya met in the university through a blind date. 8 weeks after, they were engaged. 3 kids and 11 years into their marriage, Carl came home and told his wife that he was falling in love with a colleague at work and that revelation changed their marriage.

Distraught, Kenya told Carl that if he was going to date other people, then, she would do the same. It took some time for Carl to agree because he was more familiar with men having numerous relationships, he didn’t understand how a married woman could date other men.

When the couple decided they were going to be polyamorous, they informed their children, who easily accepted but do not see their family as a normal one.

According to Wikipedia, Polyamory is the practice of, or desire for, intimate relationships with more than one partner, with the consent of all partners involved. It has been described as consensual, ethical, and responsible non-monogamy.

Carl and Kenya are now 22 years into their marriage, with both of them sleeping with multiple partners and they claim to be more in love now than before.

The couple soon started a business by opening an academy-Juju Mama Academy, where they use their unique experience to guide other couples who wants to go into polyamory.

“Carl and I have been open for 12 years. We enjoy it so much that we support other people coming into this lifestyle. We deal with every kind of problem from people cheating on their spouse, people who want to open their relationships, people who just wanna learn how to relate with one person. We educate people in what we call the new paradigm of love,” Kenya said.

Revealing that there was a lot of arguments, emotions when they first started the polyamoros relationship, Kenya said she felt she was betraying her husband the first time she went on a date.

“It was very painful for me. I started having all these thoughts and images of her having sex. my jealousies and insecurities came out and I didn’t feel good about myself,” Carl said, explaining how he felt when his wife went out on her first date.

Because they can tell the truth to each other, Kenya says polyamory has made their marriage stronger.

The couple even help themselves choose who to go on a date with and for Kenya, she prefers men younger than her. Kenya has so many partners that she can’t count, even in the same city as where she lives with her husband.

For Carl, some of his partners are also married women and Kenya confesses that she gets along with many of them who have the sense not to push her out of her place, just like Carl also gets familiar with her partners.
