legislative polyamoury in tennessee

This is very interesting from a cultural perspective: a Tennessee state Senator has acknowledged in a court case that he lives with and supports two women and their children (in separate houses), at the same time.

In the hearing, Ford said he lives some days with ex-wife Tamara Mitchell-Ford and the three children they had together. On others, he said, he stays with his longtime girlfriend, Connie Mathews, and their two children.

I think the poly term for that arrangement is “split triad”, for what it’s worth.
