Matt Roloff and Amy Roloff have been divorced for 18 months now.
And they’ve been separated for even longer than that.
Still, however, neither have of this former couple has been able to fully move on without fans of Little People, Big World expressing their irritated two cents.
Heck, sometimes it’s even two or three cents.
We’ve seen this many times over the past few months when it comes to Amy and her relationship with Chris Marek.
Remember when she was dragged for going on vacation with Marek because their trip coincided with Audrey Roloff’s due date?
Just three weeks ago, meanwhile, Amy had to defend Marek against a bunch of Internet haters, actually kind of insulting her own reality series in the process.
“Try not to make quick assumptions about anyone from what you see on an edited show,” she told critics.
Now, Matt is the one feeling the burn of the World Wide Web.
In light of this holiday season, along with his successful relationship with Caryn Chandler, Matt shared the photo above on Instagram and included with it the following caption:
I want to stop and take some time out to wish you all a Happy Holiday season.
No matter where you are, I hope you appreciate the little things and special time with your loved ones.
Caryn gave me the okay to post this photo we have from dinner last night here in Arizona..
I’ve had a great few days here full of sunshine and R&R but I sure can’t wait to see those grand babies of mine tomorrow.
Love Love to You All!
Matt rarely takes this step.
He rarely flaunts his romance with Chandler, possibly because he knows there’s some controversy behind it.
See, Caryn worked as the Roloff Farm Manager for awhile.
She has been close to the family for a long time and she knows Amy pretty well.
So it’s understandable why Matt’s relationship with her would be frowned upon a bit… and that’s before we even get to the way Chandler has allegedly treated Amy.
Caryn supposedly snubbed Amy while organizing a birthday party for her boyfriend last month.
This has reportedly led to tension between the exes, as you can learn more about below:
It has also led to a divided fan base.
There’s a segment of Little People, Big World viewers who feel a need to take sides between Amy and Matt, even if the former spouses appear to get along just fine.
“I am team Amy. Matt seems to be a bully in a relationship,” wrote one critic, seemingly out of nowhere.
This person added: “I think it’s time for the family to get real jobs. Not reality TV.”
Another took one look at the picture of Matt and Caryn and just wrote: “Disgusting!!!!!”
Some fans, meanwhile, wondered whether Chandler is in the relationship for the right reasons.
“Her official title is farm manager,” one follower speculated. “She knows everything, including financials. I do hope, for his sake and his heart, that she’s sincere.”
Can’t say we even thought about that sort of scenario before.
Thankfully, not everyone on the Internet is a conspiracy theorist.
We’ll let this level-headed individual speak for us with her take on the Roloffs:
Everyone has their own battle in life. If things [don’t] work out in one marriage … choose to move on and be happy with someone else, or just lay around and pout …
In Matt and Amy’s case, they were no compromising in salvaging the relationship. So they both chose to move on with someone else.
