'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."

Are you people on dope? I didn't realize people invested so much 'real' energy into a 'reality' couple. It's make believe people!! Jesus, collect stamps, coins, STDs. Step away from the TV.

Amy always talked down to Matt, and she also allowed her Children to speak down to Matt. Does anyone remember when the Family went on a Mississippi River Boat Cruise, and Jacob, the couples youngest Son told Matt to "Shut Up?"

If you disrespect your Husband in front of your Children, then the Children will disrespect their Father, and Amy allowed this?!

Not surprised. They really haven't shared the same interests in a long time. That's a huge part of a relationship.

I don't know how AMY put up with Matt as long as she did. I could not stand him, his "show off" ways and how he treated Amy like crap. All he ever did was give orders and had tons of workers doing all his so called ideas while he watched.

Who didn't see that coming? She's been belittling and emasculating him.....on national T.V. yet.....for years. You don't do that to a man. You just don't.

Yes, he's impulsive and scattered. But he's a creative genius. How the hell does Amy think she got that luxurious house and wonderland of a property? How does she think she became a T.V. star? Who gave their children a fairy-tale-like paradise to grow up in?

Matt's going to find someone who appreciates him. Amy knew who he was. If she couldn't handle it, she should have left long time ago. I'd never be able to handle living with someone like Matt, but there are plenty of women out there who would love it.

I never could like this show. I found it so sad that one of the twin sons was a dwarf and had so many problems and the other brother was tall and good looking. The parents knew that they had a fifty percent chance of having a dwarf child and I think it was irresponsible of them to do so. They complain of how difficult life is for a small person and then they reproduce.

She was always a beiotch. And their house is beautiful but a pigs pen. She never disiplined her children and let them act like slobs. No respect for herself, much less her husband.

ABOUT TIME! Matt has been verbally abused by Amy and the "kids" for years ! What a house. Did Amy realize they were on TV? Filthy dirty house. No respect taught to the "Kids". What a mess. Sure hope Matt has a quieter time now.
