Matt Roloff & Amy Roloff Break Up
“Though we have weathered many storms together, we recently made the tough decision to engage in a trial separation,” Matt and Amy told People magazine. “Matt remains living on the farm in our guest house and we work together everyday on the farm, on our business endeavors and most importantly, raising our amazing children. We sincerely appreciate the unwavering support, understanding and prayers from our family, friends and many fans. May God bless you.”[hl_ndn videoid=”23834915”]
Matt, 54, and Amy, 50 have four children together — 23-year-old twins Jeremy and Zack, 20-year-old Molly and 17-year-old Jacob, and they plan to ultimately put their children and family first.
‘Little People, Big World’ To Show Marriage Troubles
In a clip for a new special for Little People, Big World, the couple opens up about the tension going on through their relationship.
“Last year it was long and tough,” Matt says in the clip. “Amy and I had a lot of tension so right around Thanksgiving. I thought I would move over to the bridal house for a little bit and we’ll try that. Amy and I stuck it out for years and years when maybe we shouldn’t have. I never quite felt at home in my own home so something needed to change. We needed to try something different.”
Amy adds that she felt she and her husband had “failed” to learn to live with each other — and that she didn’t want to separate.
“It’s not my choice for him to leave. I am saddened by it. We don’t have a plan as far as how we are going to work this out so it’s not going to be easy,” she says in the clip.
The special airs on March 25 at 9 p.m. on TLC. Will you be watching, HollywoodLifers? Are you shocked they split? Let us know!
