A polyamorous mum-of-two is planning a three-way wedding - after inviting another woman into her marriage. DeAnna Rivas begged her husband, Manny Rivas, to take on a shared girlfriend to help her with childcare and fulfill her sexual desires. Now Deanna, 27, and Manny, 28, are engaged to 20-year-old Melissa James – who is helping them raise their two young children The trio, who live in Fort Lauderdale share a king-size bed and all three plan to ‘marry’ each other in the future – although the marriage would not be legal in their home state of Florida, USA. Now Meliisa James – known as MJ - takes care of the couples’ children, Vaneza, seven, and Gabriel, four, while DeAnna and Manny work – and the parents insist MJ is as much of a mum to the youngsters as they are.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.
Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.
Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
