Love blossoms for some people at work. This was certainly the case for two couples at our Medical Packs and Supplies – a workplace which provides employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Lambton, New South Wales.

Michael and Elizabeth Matherson

Elizabeth and Michael Matherson have been together for 15 years. They have worked together at the medical packaging service for seven years.

“He was a bit shy when we first met,” said Elizabeth.

“It’s nice to work together. He’s a hard worker and I like that about him. We are a really good team – both in and out of work.”

Valentine’s Day for the couple is as special as any other day.

“We might go out for a nice dinner. Every day is Valentine’s Day for us,” said Elizabeth.

Adam and Alison Porter

The Porters have been together for 18 years. They first laid eyes on each other back in 2000, when the House with No Steps (now Aruma) packaging business was run by another service provider.

“When we first met, I thought Alison was a very nice and beautiful young lady. She’s still that today,” said Adam.

“While we work together, we do have different responsibilities. We’re not together all the time, which helps keep the romance alive.”

So, what’s their secret to a happy union?

“Happy wife, happy life,” laughed Adam.

“In all seriousness, we help each other out quite a lot. That’s what makes our relationship great.”
