Saskia and Marcin got married in 2017, after dating for two years. However, she fell in love with someone else, a woman, and he accepted it since he only wants his wifey to be happy!
The couple from Munich, Germany, were married for two years when Saskia, 27, met Lui Michalski. Lui was attending Saskia's CrossFit classes, and the connection was instant.
Though Saskia didn't tell her husband that she's pansexual, she didn't want to keep any more secrets. She was frightened, but she had to come clean about her feelings for Lui.
The biggest twist was Marcin's reaction. Instead of going ballistic, like most men, the 31-year-old was supportive, and all he wanted is for his wife to be happy. Even if that meant sharing her with another woman.
The couple became a throuple
At the beginning of 2020, the couple went to become a V throuple. It means that both Marcin and Lui have romantic and sexual relations with Saskia, just not with each other.
In June, Saskia and Lui got engaged, though they cannot get married for one apparent reason: polygamy is illegal.
The throuples are on the rise, and though unconventional, it works for these three Germans.
As Saskia explained:
"Marcin has always been my perfect match."
"We were both completely monogamous and never even imagined or discussed the possibility of a polyamorous relationship."
"We were so in love, and it was always us two against the world."
Things didn't change since Saskia still loves Marcin. However, she loves Lui as well:
"Lui and I met in one of my CrossFit classes."
"We were both very attracted to each other but didn't make any steps as we were both in monogamous relationships."
She continued her unusual love triangle story:
"It took a few months until we started talking outside of training, but then things happened fast."
"I was super nervous and scared about telling Marcin."
"I knew he would be understanding, but I didn't know he would be as cool as he was about it."
"All he said when I told him I was in love was, 'You think I didn't know that already?'"
Lui is now part of the family
Saskia explained that they faced harsh criticism from strangers, but they don't really care. Marcin accepted Lui as part of their family, and that was all that mattered.
"He welcomed Lui into our life as if she was his new family member."
"He never saw Lui as a threat. Rather, he saw how happy she made me, and that made him happy."
"Marcin and Lui have a very loving but not romantic or sexual relationship."
"They care for each other and want to spend the rest of their lives with each other but not in an intimate way."
The trio also got much admiration, but as long as they are happy, who are we to judge?
"Since we outed ourselves publicly, we have received a huge wave of love. People thank us for giving them strength and inspiring them."
"Some people even say that they were judgemental at first but changed their mind once they got to know us online."
"Of course, we get trashy and hateful comments too with people saying, 'It can't be real love,' and that we're 'going to hell.'"
"However, we truly think these people are just still on their journey to finding love and acceptance, and we wish them the best."
Saskia has it all now, and her dream is to marry Lui as well. But it shouldn't be a big deal either way since everyone's looking for love, and when you find it in two people, you're winning this game called life!
