After twenty-six years of marriage, Little People, Big World stars Matt and Amy Roloff have decided to spend some time apart. In an overwhelming majority of cases, “some time apart” is a quaint little euphemism for “about to get divorced”, but in this case, there might be a little more hope than usual.
The extra hope lies in the fact that Matt hasn’t actually moved out, or at least not off of the property. He’s staying inside the couple’s guesthouse and continuing to work with the rest of the family members on the farm every day. In fact, in a preview of the couple’s upcoming special that will air on TLC on March 25, he’s seen eating inside the big house and generally hanging out as if it’s the most normal thing in the world.
Here’s a portion of the couple’s official separation statement, as published by US Magazine…
"Though we have weathered many storms together, we recently made the tough decision to engage in a trial separation. Matt remains living on the farm in our guesthouse, and we work together every day 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," the statement continued. "May God bless you.”
According to TMZ, the split came right around the holidays, and neither of the two have looked for anyone else or attempted to move on. No doubt fans are desperately hoping they will get back together, but right now, there’s no way to know for sure what will happen.
We’ll keep you updated on the split as more details become available. Until then, our thoughts go out to the entire Roloff family during this time of need. You can check out the family during a happier moment below…
