A term used to describe many Chinese criminal organizations. They are the most well-known organized crime group in China, Hong Kong, and Macao. They originated in the anti-Manchu resistance in China. The term "triad" comes from the three dots which form part of the Chinese character for the Ming Emperor Hung Wu. The Triads began as "Men of Hung." They were both part of the political resistance of the Han Chinese to the Manchu dynasty, as well as outlaws who "Ta fu — chih p'in" (Hit the Rich and help the poor).
Both the Chinese Triads and the Italian Mafia and Camorra have existed at least since the early 1800s. The Triads spread all over the world and control much of the illegal and informal economy in overseas Chinese communities.

A loving, committed relationship between 3 people. All 3 people are equal in the relationship and typically sexually intimate with both of the other two. Like a marriage, but with 3 people.

Most often found between 3 gay men, but could also be (in order of likelihood) 2 men and 1 woman, 2 women and 1 man or 3 women.

A Triad is a partnership of equals and does not have the same stigmas associated with it as does polygamy which is sometimes (not always) more about a man married to and/or controlling multiple women who are not involved with each other sexually.
"Brian and Duane have been together for about 6 months, but Richard just joined them to become an official triad."

David and Cynthia have been married for a while, but Mike just moved in and they are now a triad.
