These two cops live together with another woman as a ‘throuple’ and they have been documenting their unorthodox relationship for their 32,000 Instagram followers.
Police sergeants Alda Nery and Erisson “Nery” Melo and admin Darlene Oliveira have been in a three-way relationship for a year.
The story began in their hometown of the Brazilian municipality of Brasileia when Alda and Erisson got married in 2000.
The pair now have two children, aged 17 and 13. However, the family’s most recent arrival is Darlene.
Alda told news site G1: “When I saw her photo, I told Nery that the only person in town I would get with was her.
“We started to talk and the three of us later went out and ended up getting involved with and liking each other. And she ended up spending more time at our house than at her own apartment.”
Alda was the one who made the first move and reached out to Darlene, who was in a relationship at the time, online.
The three have been together ever since Darlene’s relationship ended.
Alda told G1: “I already knew that I liked women too, but this discovery only came after I got married.
“Nery was much more experienced, and he noticed some things in me and was the one who saw that I liked it.”
Before Darlene, Alda embarked on relationships with two other women, neither of which lasted, allegedly because they were jealous and wanted her to leave her husband.
The married couple has now been living with Darlene for the past six months and they opened an Instagram account to document their unorthodox relationship, which Alda guarantees is deeper than just sex.
According to Alda, despite some relatives’ disapproval with their unconventional relationship, her children have embraced it.
Erisson told G1: “The purpose of the page was not to show off, but to show that other forms of love are possible.”
Alda said: “Our dream is not to get married; our dream is to live together for as long as possible.”
