What does Thruple mean?

Three people in a love relationship

A thruple is a type of relationship that involves three people. It’s a modern take on traditional two-person relationships and is seen as a more progressive option.

The term gained traction in the mid-2010s, used to reference a committed, consensual relationship between three individuals. The trio in a thruple can be of any gender combination, all men, all women, or a mix. This also includes married pairs who’ve included an additional partner into their relationship.

It’s crucial to note that a thruple is not a “Threesome” or “3sum”. These terms refer to a one-off sexual event involving three people, lacking any commitment. The term ‘thruple’ is a blend of the words “Three” and “Couple”, and can sometimes be spelled as “Throuple”.
