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.

3. Last Thanksgiving Matt Moved Out to the Guest House
Matt Roloff speaks about the troubles he and his wife are having, saying that it was around Thanksgiving that he decided to move out of the house. But, he didn’t go far.
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 reveals that she’s very upset by the trial separation and says that it was not her idea to do this.
I think what Matt and I failed to do over many, many years is learned to live together. 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.
