What is their rationale for this? The fleet types kind of overlap right?

The original reason is that they got offers from each manufacturer which were too good to refuse. First to become a new A-320 customer, then Boeing gave them an extra good deal on more 737s again. Also due to the merger with DBA they already inherited a big 73G order so they might have forgotten about trying to get a single type fleet ever by then.
Their fleet is so big that the synergy advantage of having a single fleet is not so important anymore.
In a few years I guess they'll operate around 75 of each.

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

AB isn't the only carrier operating both the A320 family and the 737NG. A couple of others that come to mind are EasyJet and SAS.
