Fans of the Roloffs' show saw tension between Matt and Amy for many years. After the couple separated in 2014, Amy said on the show, "I think what Matt and I failed to do over many, many years is learned to live together. It's not my choice for him to leave. I am saddened by it." Matt moved out of their home and into a second house on the property, where he continues to live as of November, 2015. The couple continues to work together to run their farm and on their business ventures, which includes the selling of products made with the pumpkins they grow. They were both active in planning the weddings of twins Jeremy and Zach, their oldest children. Zach is also a little person, while Jeremy and younger children Molly and Jacob are average height.
