- Tory Ojeda, a 20-year-old woman who is in a relationship with four men has fallen pregnant by one of them
- Though Chris, one of her partners, is responsible for the pregnancy, Travis, Marc, and Ethan will all take care of the baby with her
- Tory said though jealousy is not an issue among them, she complains about being the only woman in the relationship, urging them to seek other romantic partners
Tory Ojeda, aged 20, a polyamorous woman with four partners, has become pregnant by one of her lovers, saying they will, however, all raise the baby together.
The 20-year-old woman met her first partner Marc, when he was 18, in high school, before she entered into a relationship with Travis, the second lover, two months after, Daily Mail reports.
Not long after she met those two, she fell in love with their mutual friends, Ethan (22) and Christopher (22).
Though she is in an open relationship with her four partners, she is the only one who has many romantic lovers, adding that she would love if her boyfriends can go after other women too.
She said that going after other partners is necessary because dividing time between all of them as the only woman in the relationship is very difficult.
“Honestly, I would love it if somebody found a second partner. 'Dividing time and figuring out schedules between all five people and making sure everyone feels included, it's kind of difficult.
“I'd like to not be the only woman in the relationship. That would definitely be nice,” she said.
The four partners all have their own bedrooms in the house they live in together, but they still take turns spending nights in Tory's bed.
Speaking about jealousy among the men, the partners said that it happens in a healthy manner as they all just have to talk about it among themselves in a relaxed state to deal with it.
“There are a couple of healthy ways to deal with it. Primarily just talking to each other,” Ethan said.
Travis, on the other hand, spoke about how talking about their feelings helps them to understand one another better.
“There's always going to be like little moments of jealousy, it does take a certain amount of restraint and just getting relaxed. I will say it helps if you know the person,” he said.
Out of the four partners, Christopher, is the biological father of the child, as their lover said she knows he is because of the date of the conception.
“Chris is the biological father. We just know that because of timing and when the approximate conception date was. Based off of the approximate conception day, we had been on vacation. So it was only us.
“But as far as I guess, socially goes, we're all raising the baby together, so everyone's dad. We're all very, very excited to be raising a baby together,” she said.
Her family do not have any issue with her having multiple partners but they are somewhat concerned that she may not have the partner that is fulfilled with her alone.
