Inside Jessica Rowe and Peter Overton’s “Yin and Yang” marriage

This adorable couple proves opposites attract!

When they first got married, Jessica Rowe and Peter Overton were Australian TV’s golden couple.

Flashforward to today, and while Jess is no longer working in television, she and Pete are still golden.

Just in April 2019, both Jess and Pete gushed to The Weekly about how much they love each other, describing their relationship as “Yin and Yang”.

“Petey grounds me. He says, ‘Okay, pussycat, just calm down, let’s organise this.’ Whereas with Petey, what I do for him is I lighten him. I know I drive him bananas in the sense that I’m messy; I don’t always think things through,” Jessica told us.

“But what I love about him is he lets me be me and he loves me as I am, and it makes me teary thinking about it.”

Peter echoed Jess’ comments, saying, “Yin and Yang, we very much balance.

“I keep everything moving, her mobiles are magically paid and the hail damaged car is fixed, all of that; but she brings just incredible warmth and commitment and unconditional love in every respect. She’s made me a better person.”
