'Little People'

Big Split

We've Separated

3/12/2014 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0312_amy-and-matt-roloff_getty"Little People, Big World" couple Matt and Amy Roloff can't stand living together anymore -- they've just announced they're separating after 26 years of marriage.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, Matt and Amy have been living separately since the holidays -- Amy currently resides in the family's main house in Oregon ... Matt lives in the guest house.

We're told neither Amy nor Matt is currently pursuing other relationships -- they're just testing the waters living alone ... for now anyway. So far, divorce isn't on the table.

Matt has had a history of drinking problems -- such as his 2007 DUI -- but we're told alcohol was NOT an issue in the split.

The Roloffs -- who have 4 children -- released a statement, saying, "Though we have weathered many storms together, we recently made the tough decision to engage in a trial separation."

Matt you are an insensitive moron! Amy has tried to Love and support you. Working all the time and demanding to have everything you want is NOT BEING A MAN--- IT IS BEING A CHILD. GROW UP little man

Matt you are a moron! Amy has tried to love and support you and even give you space but a little is never enough. All you do is work and get big ideas which put the WHOLE family at risk but you want it all your way without compromise. That is not being a Big Man but it is Being a little man being Childish and needing everything your own way you are destroying your youngest child in the process.

He treated his wife so poorly. She is a happy person in life and he is just nasty and mean. Good for her!

I hope this is a stunt for the show, which I think it is. I really like Matt and Amy's relationship. I really like Matts big dreams and his determination to make them come true, bigger men would have given up, not Matt. I can't see this being real, they have made such a big dream come true. Especially for us short guys.

PEOPLES MARRIAGES BEFORE REALITY SHOWS MAY HAVE ALREADY HAD ISSUES I GET THAT BUT, DOING REALITY SHOWS DOESNT FIX IT. ITS NOT A CURSE BUT, ITS MORE LIKE STICKING A KNIFE IN A DEEP WOUND THAT NEEDS HELING BEFORE IT HEALS AND EVEN IF IT HEALS, WHY POKE AT IT? REALITY SHOWS BENEFIT ONLY THE COMPANIES THAT AIR THEM. RARELY DOES COUPLES THERAPY HELP OR ANY OF THESE SHOWS PERIOD. SAD TO SEE IF THEY PART, MAYBE GETTING OF TV WOULD BE THE BETTER ANTIDOTE, NOT LIVING IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF YOUR HOMES. IM PRAYING FOR YOU BOTH THE MARRIAGE WORKS OUT!!!! LGNM

From watching the show, Amy appeared to be the antagonist in the marriage...She was constantly complaining about money even as he raised millions through the show and farm..She pitted her children against him constantly... She plays the martyr as a stay home mother but she kept the house worse than a warehouse despite the hundreds of thousands invested in it..... Many times I wished her had given her a Fred Sanford - one across the lips...
