The couple, who met almost nine years ago, first met through the company that they now both work for.
At the time of their first meeting, Brendon was just a client – but within six months of starting a relationship, the pair began working together.
Separation and divorce can be a lonely, isolating and confusing time. The Split, hosted by Mandy Nolan, is here to give you the advice, confidence and company you need. Post continues below.
“It was nine years ago and we just hit it off,” Brendon told Mamamia.
“We’re both very creative so we had that in common and we just started creating stuff together,” he added.
“It was always very easy to be in a relationship with her.”
In the years that followed, the pair worked together on a number of projects as they launched their own businesses.
But while working together is often a source of conflict for many couples, it was largely a positive experience for the pair.
“It was always positive,” Brendon said of their experience. “We did not have one argument in eight years together.”
Simone agreed: “It never felt like we had to separate the two [work life and home life].”
“You could be in the shower and start talking about work – it didn’t matter to us,” she added.
If you’re going through a separation, Mamamia’s podcast, The Split, is here to help. Post continues below.
Most recently, in early 2019, the couple released a book about relationships together, titled Relationship, Are You Sure You Want One?
