Jay shared the story of her unconventional relationship with her followers in response to a video prompt asking “What are some of the misconceptions that people have about you and your spouse’s relationship?”
Jay answered: “That we’re romantically involved.
“Let me explain… My best friend and I, of eight years, got married, had a commitment ceremony, whatever you want to call it.
“We did this because we wanted to raise kids together, we wanted to live our lives by each other’s side.

“I couldn’t imagine living the life I live without her by my side, I trust her, I appreciate her, we work together, we are partners, we make decisions together, we act as a married couple does, but we don’t have the romantic or physical stuff.”
While Jay explains that they both have the freedom to find romantic partners, neither of them are interested in doing so as the “love they have is all they could ask for.”
As well as being spouses, the two women are loving parents to a foster child.
Jay said that she and Krystal became close after she came out of a “toxic” relationship in 2019.
While Jay initially began looking for love once more, she came to the conclusion that her “grand love story may not exist.”

She and Krystal had always joked about getting married and raising kids together, which soon became a reality for the pair.
In a follow-up video, Jay explains: “One day a young man came into my life who needed a home and love and a family and I called her up and I was like, ‘I think I’m raising this kid’ and she was like ‘no, we’re raising this kid’ and we got married and became a family.”
Naturally Jay’s followers had plenty of questions about their situation, including what would happen if either of them met someone else.

Jay said that they would cross that bridge if they came to it, but as best pals they would get through it.
“Right now we’re happy living together, sharing our finance’s together, raising a foster kid together and really building a life”, Jay said.
