A polyamorous couple has revealed how they hope to marry and start a family with a woman they met on Instagram, as they celebrate their first anniversary as a throuple. Rebecca Gross, 31, and Dave Gilbert, 37, who met through work, met Karla who had reached out to them on Instagram.

The trio hit it off straight away after a three-day date, and shortly became inseparable. It didn’t take long for Karla to up sticks and move an hour away to live with Dave and Rebecca.

The couple was already polyamorous, but now the trio who all live in Arizona, only have eyes for one another. The throuple hopes to make their union official and start a family.

“We want to enjoy being engaged and the planning process before we have children, but we’re thinking about it in the next couple of years. We want to have two children. It would be an amazing addition to our family,” Rebecca, Karla, and Dave say.
