As far as their working together and their living arrangements, there isn’t too much of a difference.

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.

Hollywood Life writes that:

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.

2. TLC Is Airing a Special on the Family This Month

Last year it was long and tough.

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.

4. The Separation Wasn’t Amy’s Decision

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.

5. Fans Have Shown Their Support for the Family During This Difficult Time

Apparently, fans of the show as well as loved ones have been very supportive as the news has spread about the couple’s split. The Roloffs stated to People:

We sincerely appreciate the unwavering support, understanding and prayers from our family, friends and many fans. May God bless you.

  1. Seems as though, one of them has given up trying. It does take two to make a marriage succeed. My husband and I have been through some very tenuous times. We made a firm commitment that our marriage is more important than anything and that we would not let anything or anyone interfere in it. Through counseling, love and God’s help, our marriage is strong. We will be married 26 years this November.

  2. To love, to live, to commit to another takes work and loads of it. True commitment from ones self to the choices selected, with G-d at the helm of the ship, brings the greatest lifetime rewards!

  3. I,m sad to hear of this awesome family who have opened the eyes of ordinary people into the lives of people living with dwarfism…Thank you Amy and Matt. Good luck for the future for your family.

  4. matt was just upset that amy would not succumb to his deviant sex request. She said that some things were not meant to be taken orally !!!!!

  5. Amy a great mom. Amy will always try to be her kids best friend. Wrong Amy!! Amy is a nasty housekeeper and her children are just like her. Matt,a
    visionary. Where would they all be without him? Sad to say,but one day when Matt is gone,they will find out the hard way. I pray one day they too,will be visionaries. Amy and the kids are just letting themselves go. I think that bothered Matt. I don’t think Humtie Dumpie can put them back together again. I will miss them not being on TLC,but I have them all in my prayers.

    • Was Amy supposed to be the live in maid? With the money these people have made, Matt should have seen to it that Amy had a housekeeper. She has physical limitations,as does he, and it would have been appropriate for them to have help.

      • People who don’t have physical disabilities and depression don’t understand or have mercy on people who struggle with keeping a house in order. Plus that is some people’s strength,, keeping things in order and clean. Not everyone is like that.

  6. Amy Roloff is extremely selfish, Matt Roloff can get more accomplished than most men that are of normal size and have no physical dissabilities. Everything he does is beautiful and she always not picking.jeremy and Audrey ought to end up on the farm, I can’t believe Amy says sell the farm get a divorce and part are ways. She is just plain a selfish person.
