The two first met in 1991 through figure skating.
Salé had a tryout with David Pelletier in the summer of 1996, but it did not lead to a partnership. After her moderate success in singles, she decided to give pairs one last shot. Coach Richard Gaulthier, who was helping Pelletier find a partner, suggested Salé. He and Pelletier went to Edmonton in February 1998 to try out with Salé again. "The first time we grabbed hands, it was just great," said Pelletier, and by the next month Salé had moved to Montréal to skate with Pelletier.
The Canadian Figure Skating Association invited the pair to compete at Skate Canada, where they placed second in the short program – ahead of reigning Canadian Champions Kristy Sargeant and Kris Wirtz – and third in the long program to win the bronze medal. Because of their success, they were invited to the NHK Trophy in Japan and won another bronze medal.
Their fall successes made them favorites for the Canadian title, but they struggled technically and finished second. The silver medal earned them a spot on the Four Continents and World team, but Pelletier's back pain forced the pair to withdraw from both competitions. They spent two months off the ice recuperating.
Salé and Pelletier became engaged on Christmas Day 2004 at their Edmonton, Alberta home, and married on December 30, 2005 at the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel in Banff, Alberta. In 2006, they served as commentators on Olympic Ice, which aired on USA Network during the 2006 Winter Olympics. Their only child together, son Jesse Joe Pelletier, was born on September 30, 2007 at the Sturgeon Community Hospital in St. Albert, Alberta.
Salé and Pelletier were inducted into the Skate Canada Hall of Fame in 2008. They were inducted into the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame on March 26, 2009.
In October 2009, Salé began competing on the first season of the CBC's Battle of the Blades. She was partnered with hockey player Craig Simpson (currently lead analyst for Hockey Night in Canada), "whom she had known for years from the Edmonton skating scene." They won the competition in November 2009. In 2010, Salé competed on the second season of Battle of the Blades, this time paired with Theoren Fleury.
On June 4, 2010, it was reported that Salé and Pelletier had decided to divorce, but planned to remain skating partners. In a later interview, Salé stated that they had separated in March 2009, but chose to keep the news private for over a year.
