The Truth About Mary-Kate And Ashley Olsen's Relationship

Full House alums and fraternal twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been close ever since their birth in June 1986, as they joked about in a 2018 interview with the Wall Street Journal. "We do everything together," Ashley told the outlet, to which Mary-Kate quipped, "We came out of the womb doing that."

Not only did the two grow up acting alongside one another under their Dualstar entertainment company, producing hits like It Takes Two and Passport to Paris, to name a few projects, but in 2007, they founded their Elizabeth and James clothing company. The high-end fashion brand "embodies a relaxed approach to dressing with a playful and sophisticated sensibility," as its website notes. They also created The Row fashion label, which "focuses on exceptional fabrics, impeccable details, and precise tailoring."

Of course, their relationship goes deeper than their business ties, and the two are extremely close. This bond has probably come in handy in the aftermath of Mary-Kate's May 2020 divorce from Pierre Olivier Sarkozy, who she married in 2015. 

With that in mind, let's take a minute to explore the truth about Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's relationship.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's relationship is like a 'marriage'

Similarly to many sibling relationships out there, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen don't always see eye-to-eye. This sentiment is especially true for the twins, as they work closely together and are arguably viewed in the media as a package deal. "It's been 32 years of learning how to communicate," Ashley said of their close sisterhood to the Wall Street Journal. Comparing their bond to "a marriage and a partnership," she added, "We have had ups and downs."

Despite whatever bumps they might hit, they always circle back to a shared and singular vision, especially where it concerns the topic of fame. "We've been there, we've done that, we started out that way," Mary-Kate told Vogue about the sisters' decision to avoid the public eye. "But this is the way we chose to move forward in our lives: to not be in the spotlight, to really have something that speaks for itself."

Although Mary-Kate and Ashley are on the same page where it concerns their fashion labels, they might have a difference of opinion regarding where they live. Mary-Kate wants to live in New York City for the foreseeable future, while Ashley has considered relocating to Los Angeles, as the WSJ reported. Tinseltown is where her artist boyfriend, Louis Eisner, reportedly resides, per Grazia Daily.
