'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."

This happened in most marriages. It's not the seven year itch , it the 25 year itch. by the n your children are mostly gone and you start to look at each other and wonder what happened to this person and wonder who are you. Its just a time in life . Some couples make it through this some couples don't, but i think this couple will weather this storm. .We have been married 50 years in April 17 th of this year Now we look at each other and say " What happened to 30 years ?" And it is all ok now. Good job To us.

His drinking did not cause the split... that issue was dwarfed by bigger problems.

I used to love this show. Stopped watching when they filmed their last vacation. It was hard to watch . The wife planned the trip. I thought it was cruel planning an uphill hike that she knew he couldn't do with his crutches. She did not care. She got mad when he would take longer getting to the van. He had to take a more level path that was much longer. It's like she wanted everyone to see she was the fittest. I couldn't watch after that. Am I surprised that they are not together no, surprised it took so long. Have a feeling his drinking problem will improve now.

Well she always disrespected him...she always put the kids first and treated him badly.I always wanted him to find a woman who respected him and treated him like a husband should be treated....not like he was in the way and not wanted all the time.

OK    

I watched a couple of episodes. The house was a filthy pigsty! Seemed like he wanted to improve their life and all she wanted to do was sit around in filth.

That's a shame - we've been watching that show since I first aired... I hope they can work everything out and concentrate on each other.

Another Reality couple split! How many of these couples stay together ? Seems like not many! Marriage is tough enough then bring in cameras~~~~~~~more stress!

So, that means that little hottie Amy Roloff is available! I've been looking for a short girlfriend for some time now, to accentuate my 6'3" frame. Oh, the possibilities! I wonder if she goes for us regulars?

You could see this coming...not surprised but sorry to see anyone not work out a 26 year marriage. last episode matt was trying to get amy to be a little cleaner around the house, paint walls, replace carpet etc....and amy was against all of it. the house is beautiful but nasty. He was almost in tears saying he work to build that house and farm but he couldnt live in a pig pen anymore. she should be ashamed. so many women would be happy to have a man as creative as matt who actually put his ideals in motion!!!!!

No woman will want to date that guy because they would have to pay for the date. You just know he's going to say he's a little short.

It's very unfortunate, however, after watching a few of their episodes you can see the tension and unhappiness between the two. You can see the children kinda playing it off and keeping themselves busy.
