Here are the three gay men who want to get married and have kids together

A trio of Canadian men who are in a three-way relationship have caused a storm by saying they plan to have kids together.

27-year-old Adam Grant was married to Shayne Curran, 29, since 2011 – but the pair decided to divorce last year.

It wasn’t because they had grown apart however, but because a third man, Sebastian Tran, had joined their relationship. The Nova Scotia threesome has been living together since 2012, but they didn’t feel right with just two of them being married.

Adam told the Daily Mail: “We didn’t want Sebastian to be excluded or feel like the third wheel in our relationship. So Shayne and I decided to get a divorce so that we could make a renewed commitment between the three of us instead. We want to make sure that we’re all equally bound and obligated to each other in marriage.”

Shayne added: “We’re the happiest we’ve ever been – all our dynamics and personalities work so well in a relationship. The three of us bring out the best in each other. We all sleep in a king size bed together – it’s necessary when there’s three people in a relationship as well as two dogs who end up getting into your bed!”

The throuple have also spoken about their plans to have children.

Shayne explained: “We want to mix our genes enough so that our kids are as genetically close to us as possible. But, we are open to adoption too. Children are a huge part of our future plans.

“I have two sisters who have both offered to carry our children for us as surrogates and are willing to donate their eggs as well. My sisters actually argue over which one of them will carry our baby first. I feel very lucky! Meanwhile Sebastian’s sister will probably donate her eggs too so we can keep it in the family.

Predictably, Daily Mail commenters didn’t take the story well.

One highly-rated comment ranted: “I don’t understand how this is considered acceptable for SO many reasons including all the psychological studies stating children need both a male AND a female role model parent. Whatever happened to those studies? Were they just bonkers?”

        Of course. I was quick to comment. On a second thought, to each his own, although I’m slightly uncomfortable with always compring ourselves with straight people or judging ourselves by their standards, something I am often guilty of. It’s the same thing that so many blacks and Africans do.But is polygamy allowed in their country?

      Why shouldn’t “they” be allowed to have kids? You’re making the fundamental error in judgement homophobes make. It’s not just about dirty anal sex. There is love and companionship. Will three men not be able to love the children as two would? It’s even on a different level than polygamy as it is polyamory. Polygamy is one entity in two separate relationships as one while polyamory is the same relationship shared by multiple partners. No juju-ing husband #2 here because your husband loves him more.

      To each his own though.

    I seriously don’t know why some of you would kick against their relationship. In as much as it looks weird or feels awkward, what doesn’t? To me I totally support them, after all support is all we need in our lives, good ole support!
    My only fear is the third guy to be recruited may one day be turned to a third wheel…’may be’. Scrapping that fear, they are three guys (nd guys are totally more understanding of the two human species)…it would work out for them…even if it doesn’t, who cares?

    How would they procreate? By mixing the semen of the three together or what? Hmmm

      My thoughts, exactly. I was thinking about how it’d work, the entire read. I understand that it’s supposed to be a sperm cell breaking through an ovum to create a single zygote. However rare the triploid split is, it doesn’t last long enough to become a fully functional human being. I wonder how they want to inseminate three sperm cells into one ovum

    The sisters agreed to carry the kids? Haven’t they been informed of the medical dangers of incest?
    Three people in a relationship just seems like an excuse to be tapping more than one ass in a marriage, which is what straight men use to do in the past(hello polygamy). But then again I thought the whole point of being gay is to be able to see stupid laws laid down by heterosexuals for what it is(pure selfishness laced with satisfaction of flesh). Congrats to them, they just handed a loaded gun to homophbes; who knows how long the bullets will last…

    This is wrong. It seems more like a sexual fetish, than anything. And raising children in such a setting, what morals do you hope to instill in them?

    And the bit about mixing semen up and fighting over who to donate eggs, almost gave me a headache. I think what differentiates us from animals is restraint. Just because you have the liberty to do something doesn’t mean you should go ahead to do it. Sometimes u need to exhibit some self control, this is what these westerners do not understand, and set your limits

    And the faux liberalists comparing this to polygamy. Polygamy is a legit form of marriage, this is just three young horny people fucking

      Word for word, this is an argument homophobes use against homosexual relationships as a whole. Equating someone’s love to a “sexual fetish” is completely incensed and even worse is assuming they have no morals because you don’t understand how they love.

      Polygamy is one person deciding to share their love among two people who don’t love each other. This is three people who love each other equally. Yet you see polygamy as “legit.” Why and how?

    What baffles me, is the same LGBT people clamouring for “equality” with straight folks, are always the 1st to shout foul when we do some of the same things straight folks do we reckless abandon.

    Ppl come here when we are having “thirsy slut” post days, drool and brag how they can “burst it open, drop it like its hot, ride it into the sunset, choke on it, pound it, twerk on it, smash it, tear it up (albet with a minimum of 3 guys year in year out). I wonder where and how they work up the nerve to slut shame 3 ppl who have been in a…wait for it…COMMITTED relationship for almost 3 years now. I just can’t with all the “Judginas” on KD. I have no qualms calling ppl out, but let it be based on fairness. The ugly truth is that some of “us” have an array of fuck buddies, with time table, schedules and everything, but we are not having 3 ppl play house. The stench of hypocrisy and double standard is too nauseating for comfort right now.

    Straight ppl cohabit all the time, why can’t gay/Bi ppl do the same?
    Straight ppl (Christians, Muslims, Native Traditional believers etc) practice polygamy, so why should gay ppl who the same adjectives applies to, be exempted from this rule? Equal rights anyone?

    While we are pondering on the above, can someone wheel in a medical practitioner to explain to “us” all, that one’s sister volunteering or being a surrogate has nothing nor is remotely related to incest?
    FYI, straight ppl have family members who sign up to be surrogates.

    The only thing that I found creepy about this story is the “mixing of Semen”.
    It’s usually a bitter battle when 2 ppl invest in bring a child to the world and wake up one day to decide they want 2 end the partnership. Now 3 people? With mixed semen? Lol, that’s just drama overload, when the train goes off it’s track.

      There is such a thing as a gestational surrogate! Someone who carries the baby but did not donate the eggs and is therefore not related to the baby!

        November 09, 11:53 Reply

        Fair enough, but does having ur family member providing the egg and carrying the baby qualify as incest? Cos last I checked, incest involves sexual activities (genuinely interested in getting educated)

          Peak, the resultant embryo, whether conceived in utero or in vitro is still not right, as the biological cells are from siblings.

          The embryo is highly susceptible to all sorts of deformities and diseases. That is why in normal societies brothers and sisters don’t marry each other

          No stress yourself biko. She’s providing the oven that’s all. Even if she was providing the raw material I have a problem calling it incest as incest as we know it involves sexual intercourse. Na genetic issues fit come up if she donates eggs

          …and “mixing semen” doesn’t mean the 3 different sperm cells will join together and become one sperm cell and fertilize the egg cell.
          It means the semen from the 3 guys will be mixed together in a petri-dish (or whatever container) with the egg cell and ONE of the them sperm cells will fertilise the egg.

          Broadly speaking,yes it qualifies.

      Peak just because we are clamoring for equality doesn’t mean we should lower our morals, or does it? This is clearly an abuse of privilege and sets the LGBT movement a few steps back. How do you convince the average bible trumper that we aren’t all perverts when they come across a story like this? .

      if we want the average straight person to see us as equals, then we must also show them that we can be just as morally upright and frown and at what is generally regarded as absurd, as in this case

          There’s polygamy, the central aim of which is marriage. This is sex, lets just call it what It is. its trying to build up something out of a sexual arrangement between 3 people, and then trying to masquerade it under marriage. Its a completely different thing and lets not even go into how problematic and archaic polygamy is. The more reason why that should’nt be a valid point to bring up, only backward and religious societies practice polygamy, and in most cases these societies are also extremely homophobic.

          So its funny how we homosexuals, are defending this kind of thing using polygamy as a standard

            This is sex? Really, Chizzie? In one comment, you reduced a gay relationship that uncannily echoes the homophobe’s view that gay people are incapable of loving relationships. Why do polygamists get a pass under the umbrella of marriage, and gay throuples are labelled as only in it for sex? This throuple has been together since 2012 o. Much older than Kim Kardashian’s infamous wedding. And yet you denigrated what they have to sex simply because they’re one person too many for your taste.

        @Chizzie – “Morals” you say, need I remind you that men getting intimate with men is wildly considered immortal? Having sex b4 marriage, having multiple sex partners etc.

        I completely understand why a lot of people here have reservations about the situation, but we keep forgetting that we “all” live in a city made of glass. Whatever compass you use to judge someone today, affects you indirectly, u just dont know it. How? Bcos we are all linked/connected. You don’t use ur moral compass to judge others. We sometimes sound like the homophobes that we spend a lot of energy crucifying. Just because we “can’t do/understand it” doesn’t make it wrong. I am not a 100% sold on the arrangement, but if they are “Happy”, then that’s all that matters. I just have a problem with the idea of bring children into the equation.
        BTW lets give this “arming the homophobes” argument a rest. We will always be outlaws, the inferior breeds. That’s the ugly truth. We win one argument, they would pick up another nonsensical issue to stand on.

    Mr Kran will get his stay and edge B out of the mix.
