A polyamorous family with two dads and two moms are so close they don’t know anymore who their children’s dads are.
It was in 2019 when Taya and Sean Hartless met Alysia and Tyler Rodgers online. As they became close, they all started to admit that they had developed deep feelings for each other.
The family then moved in together and had two more kids, alongside the two Alysia and Tyler had already conceived.
As the moms and dads sleep together, they don’t know who their youngest kids’ dads are and they just want to keep it that way.
“None of us had been polyamorous before, but we all just met and fell in love,” Tanya, 27, said.
“Since we moved in together we all just co-parent all the children – we’re one big family unit. A lot of people don’t really understand polyamory, and think it is deviant or un-wholesome in some way.”
“It is true that it wasn’t always easy – it took me a while to admit I had feelings for someone else – and we definitely do get jealous sometimes,” Tanya continued.
“But now it’s so natural to us all and I feel so grateful to have multiple partners to raise children with. Why wouldn’t you want more love and support and more hands around?
“It’s a messy, hectic, crazy, wonderful life – and I can’t think of anything else we could ever want.”
Tyler, 35, and Alysia, 33, tied the knot in 2012 while Sean, 45, and Taya, 27, got married in 2015.
“From the first night we met, we all wanted to just see more of each other,” Taya shared.
“It wasn’t easy – there was a lot of hesitations around having feelings. Sean was the first to point it out – he said ‘we can’t deny this is happening’. We agreed to talk it out to see what the future would look like.
“At first, I was really scared to come out and admit my feelings for Tyler – I was scared to let someone else in.
“But eventually we all admitted how we felt.”
The family went on to have two children, a son, 8, and a daughter, 6.
