According to US Magazine, Matt and Amy Roloff, stars of Little People, Big World, have officially filed for divorce. The couple took a trial separation that lasted several months. During this time, they co-parented and continued to operate the family farm together in Helvetia, Oregon. Ultimately, the Roloffs decided to make their separation a permanent one. They have four children.
“After 27 years of marriage, it is with great sadness that we have come to the difficult decision to file for divorce,” the couple said in a statement to Us Weekly. “We are proud of what we have accomplished together, including raising four wonderful children who have grown to become remarkable adults and building our strong and ongoing successful business.”
“Last year, it was long and tough,” Matt said by way of explanation on the couple’s TLC show. “Amy and I had a lot of tensions, so right around Thanksgiving, I thought I would move over to the [guest] house for a little bit…Amy and I stuck it out for years when maybe we shouldn’t have. I never quite felt at home in my own home, so something needed to change.”
“It’s not my choice for him to leave,” Amy admitted. “I am saddened by it. It’s been 26 years. We don’t have a plan for how we’re going to work this out, so it’s not going to be easy.”
“Our kids and our ever growing family, and the love and support we have for them, will be our priority,” the Roloffs said in their statement on June 5. “We will continue to work together side by side in the daily responsibilities for our many current ventures. We would like to thank our family, friends and all our fans for their continued support and understanding during this difficult time.”
