In an unusual arrangement of sorts, a married couple is preparing to get divorced to make way for another woman to cohabitate with them.
Cristina and Benno Kaiser have been a married couple for more than 12 years. But not in their wildest dreams had they imagined that another woman will come in between the two to end their marriage and start a new relationship with the trio, thus finally living their 'happily ever after.'
An unusual relationship—a happy ending after all
Cristina, 31, and Benno Kaiser, 37, who are parents to three children; decided to end their holy matrimony on paper in order to give their 21-year-old lover, Sierra Kuntz, a legal entry into their relationship, the couple told Barcroft Media.
“Cristina and I decided this was something that needed to be done in order for Sierra to understand the depth of how much we love her and want her to be part of our family,” Benno revealed in his interview with Barcroft.
“The benefits of one of us marrying her are going to be on many different levels,” he added. She [Sierra] is going to be legally considered a parent to the children and, more importantly, it will show her that this is not a temporary thing, we both love her and it’s something that’s meant to be permanent,” he explained further.
Cristina and Benno had met one another some 12 years ago while they both were serving in the US Military Police Corps in Virginia.
Four months later, they tied the knot and a year into their marriage they had their first child, Isaiah, now 11, and later, Rebecca, seven, and Brianna, six.
But things weren't turning out the way Cristina had imagined for her marriage. Cristina, who is bisexual, began to feel something fundamentally missing in her matrimony.
“Initially, it was my idea to open the marriage. I brought it to Benno’s attention and told him I would like to introduce women to our relationship to see where it goes,” Cristina, a legal assistant, revealed further.
She thought there was a spark missing between her and Benno when she came across Sierra while indulging in some retail therapy in a local shopping center in Las Vegas.
The story that unfolded after Sierra's entry got even more 'interesting'.
Initially, Sierra wasn't too sure about her entry into the couple's life.
“At first I was very hesitant about getting involved with a married couple,” Sierra divulged.
“I was worried that I would be disposable and that this was a phase they were going through. But when I spent time with them, I realized what they wanted and feel this was a situation I could work with, so I jumped on board,” explained Sierra.

They went on a few dates and to Cristina’s delight, Sierra was willing to join her marriage.
"Sara and Cristina and I all clicked and — shortly after our first date — we knew that we were meant to be with her and that this was something we wanted to pursue," Benno added.
In Benno's eyes, both women hold an equally important place in his life and he cannot imagine his life without either one of them.
“My feelings for the both are equal. I love them both without question. They are both very much part of my life and I couldn’t imagine living my life without either of them,” he said.
Sex—wild, adventurous and everything else in between
As Benno described it, their sex life is quite busy. But that doesn't mean that they mind it in any way.
He explained: "It’s busy. There are lots of hands everywhere. The beauty of what we do is that we can have a very active sex life and it’s completely safe and it’s with people that we love."
As he likes to put it, their sex life is a riot.
"We share a bed together, we share everything together, so since we met Sierra we have not had a night that we don’t all involve each other in some sort of sexual activity," Benno disclosed.
“I don’t ever have to worry about having a boring sex life 20 years from now when other couples or monogamous couples are. We have a lot of intimacy between all three of us,” he quipped.
Two mums. One dad
After Sierra's entry into their life, the three kids got along easily with their new mummy—quite contrary to popular expectations.
“We had talked to our children before this and let them know we wanted to adopt someone and bring somebody into our relationship. Our children have been very supportive of this. They have understood,” Benno revealed.
On Sierra's end, she couldn't be any happier with her status quo.
"I absolutely feel like their mum. I hope now, they love me, they call me ‘mommy Sara’ and I love them just as much," Sierra told Barcroft.
Despite the fact that she isn't their biological mother, Sierra is unfazed and loves the three kids unconditionally.
“I’m not jealous that the children are not biologically related to me at all. Just because I didn’t birth them doesn’t mean I can’t love them and they can’t love me. That doesn’t hinder my love at all for them,” Sierra said.
Too many cooks spoil the broth and it holds ground even in this unusual relationship. But the three have learned to stay ahead of the 'relationship woe' curve and keep it tight—even in the face of arguments and squabbles.
Like Sierra explained: “There is really not jealousy in our relationship. Sometimes we have a hard time communicating because there are three people instead of two, but we always work through it. We have always been the best in every situation and we always work through our problems.”
The secret lies in keeping it open and honesty with one another that is keeping them together.
“We share all of our feelings with each other and we don’t hold anything back. Everything is equal, so there is nothing to be jealous of. We are very happy with all three of us together,” Benno added further.
And for those who are inspired to give threesomes a go, Benno has a statutory warning for all enthusiasts.
“This lifestyle isn’t for everyone. There are a lot of people that are monogamous and are happy with just being with one person and that’s completely fine. Every one of us is different. But before you judge, take a look at our lives and see the benefit of it. I couldn’t imagine my life any other way,” he said.
