Alysia Rogers and Taya Hartless live with their partners and claim that they don’t know which one of them is the father of their children. They met online three years ago and started developing feelings for each other.
Even though they already have their own kids, the four couples had another one together. Neither of them know if Sean or Tyler are the biological parents of the other three kids. Taya said that it doesn’t matter as she and her partners are the parents of all four kids.
She added that none of them had been polyamorous before. The four couples met and fell in love, and since they moved in together, they have become one big family. People don’t understand polyamory, and it can be considered unwholesome or deviant. It took them a while to admit that they had feelings for each other, and they sometimes get jealous.
Now that they’re all living together, she said that she’s grateful for having multiple partners who she can raise her kids with. She also said that she’s always wanted more love and support from her partners. Taya and her husband, Sean, met Alysia and Tyler Rogers in June 2019. They started chatting online for months before they finally met.
Taya said that the first night they met, they immediately felt like they were in love. She added that it wasn’t easy at first, as there were a lot of doubts about their feelings. However, Sean was the first one to point out the feelings, and he said that they couldn’t deny it.
We talked about what the future might be like together, and at first, Taya was initially hesitant to open up about her feelings for Tyler. Eventually, everyone admitted their feelings for each other. In 2020, the four couples moved into their first big home.
Taya said that lockdown helped their relationship develop. She explained that the men would switch rooms every night, and they would spend the night with one woman and the next with another. Although Tyler, Sean, and Alysia are not dating, they all consider each other to be close partners.
The family is referred to as a closed quad because they don’t date other people outside of the four. Taya stated that although some of her partners are married, the group is still on the same page. She said that at first, she would spend the night with both Tyler and Sean, but now it’s more like a non-hierarchical arrangement.
She also stated that they try to maintain the relationship by having a “quad date” once a month. The four of them spend most of their time together as a family, and they usually celebrate holidays and major events together. As a result, they became such close-knit that when they started talking about having more kids, they had a surprising agreement.
Both women agreed to continue sleeping with the same men, and they didn’t know who the father of the kids would be. Alyasia, who works in the economic development industry, found out she had become pregnant in August 2020. A few months later, Taya also became pregnant. She said that they didn’t care who the father was because there was no regulation regarding the matter.
We told them that we would all be the parents of the kids, and we don’t want to know anything about it. On April 3, 2021, Alysia gave birth a boy, while Taya had another son on August 11, 2021. They are all very happy to have more kids.
According to Taya, the kids refer to her as “my mama” and “Alysia” while Sean is referred to as “dad.” She also said that the kids proudly tell their friends that they have two moms and two fathers. While she is looking after the younger kids, Alysia, who works at a high school, and Tyler, who is an electrician, go out and work.
Taya said that people often ask if it’s a big deal that one of her kids isn’t biologically her own. She added that she has remained close with her son since he was a few months old, and there is nothing that could change her relationship with him if she were biologically related to him. She also stated that it’s very easy to fall in love with one of the people that you are in a polyamory relationship with. She additionally said that there are a lot of myths about being in such relationships.
Although they admit that they sometimes feel envious, Taya said that it’s a normal response to a need that’s not being met.
