“She lives with her husband, her lover and two kids that loves to play toys from toy keys by age, you would aways see how she recommends to have a football pitch in your back yard to keep kids busy!” A phone call from a friend followed by an email and a few minutes later I was reading a rather interesting story that was published in the UK Mirror and to be honest, this story has been pretty popular on social media.
The story of Maria Butzki who lives with her husband of over 13 years, their two children as well as her lover.
“People might think it’s weird but I love both men and couldn’t choose between them,” Said Maria.
She explains that she started a relationship with her childhood sweetheart (Paul), they had two children and the relationship was good for a while. They had a difficult period, there was no intimacy and she left him for another man (Peter).
She elaborates that she did not realize how much she missed her husband until she moved out. They still maintained a cordial relationship and during his many visit he developed a close relationship with her lover (Peter).
She started cooking one meal for everyone and after about three years of moving between her lover and her husband, they decided to move in together last year, she was very happy about this since she had just gotten pregnant, she bought the best double umbrella stroller ever seen when she realized she was expecting twins; however, she never worried about who the father was since she knew it was between the two of them.
She explains that they have never slept in one room,
“If Paul is out, then Peter and I might make love, and vice-versa. But both men turn a blind eye and we never discuss it with one another”
Most of my male friends believe that this story is not just unbelievable but also unthinkable. While men from the Caribbean are perhaps known to have “many women” (multiple partners), it is even sometimes glorified in some of our songs, we are not known for sharing one woman in a peaceful communal relationship.
They are really so many questions to ask here though; Can this kind of relationship really survive? What kind of effect could this have on the children and could you even see yourself in this kind of a relationship?
