I don’t really know anything about your story, but just off the top of my head, some possible solutions might be–make them all siblings (or like @the-fledgling-artist suggested, cousins could work too, in some cultures.) Or you could make all three characters guys. Or girls. Unless having them be different genders is vital to the story. Good luck!
