A “happily” man has allowed his wife date another man and she spends time with both men. Of which they even plan to move in together later in the future.
Sarra-Maria Karlstrom-Rantala was married to her husband Ville for a decade when she met Jani, the second love of her life.
The 32-year-old then decided she was polyandrous and would be married to Ville while dating Jani.
Sarra says she lives with her husband for one week and then her lover the next, and the trio – who own a cafe together – hope to move in together soon.
Polygamy is illegal in their native Finland, so Sarra plans to have a traditional Pagan/Viking ceremony with Jani, a 28-year-old IT worker, while staying legally married to 34-year-old labourer Ville.
Sarra, from Rovaniemi, Finland, met Ville at a rock bar over a decade ago and are very happy together.
But Jani was brought into their relationship after Sarra met him at a beach while filming a concert where his band was performing.
They started out as friends, but over time Sarra felt a romantic connection to Jani, and she told both men that she wanted to be polyandrous with them.
Ville and Jani were taken aback, but they accepted the arrangement and have learned to live with it.
“I’m dating both of the guys, but the guys don’t date each other. They have become very good friends though.
“Being married to two guys isn’t legal in Finland, so I’m legally married to Ville, and in 2020 I will have a Pagan/Viking ceremony with Jani called Hand Fastening. It’s kind of like a wedding but the priest is our friend.
“We don’t all live together yet, but we hope to soon. We do own a caf together though.
“At the moment Ville and Jani have their own homes close to each other so I live with Ville for one week and then Jani the next week, and it carries on like so. We spend a lot of time together as a three though.
“Now, Ville is very into the lifestyle, but Jani does remain more monogamous than us two – but he’s fine with the situation now.”
Polyamory is the concept of loving more than one person, and polyandrous defines a woman who chooses to take two or more husbands.
A polyamorous relationship isn’t without its trouble though as Sarra admits that jealously can be a natural emotion occasionally.
