Roloff is caught between a dilemma of wanting to move off her family farm and not really wanting to let go of her family home.
Amy and her ex-husband, Matt Roloff, had bought their Oregon farm and had lived together in it for decades. But after they parted ways in 2016 and Roloff got engaged to Chris Marek, she accepted her ex-husband offer to buy out her share from the family farm and move in with Marek.
However, things don't seem to go very smoothly as the Roloff matriarch has still not been able to move out. Earlier, she had mentioned that the farm she called home has completely changed after her split. “Everything has changed on the farm,” Amy said in the new Youtube teaser for the show. "Family that I thought would be forever is different now. The future is unknown," she said, according to Good Housekeeping.
She had also mentioned through an Instagram post that it will be tough for her to move out of her Oregon farm because she has a lot of memories attached to it. "I’m going through everything and oh what memories come flooding my mind of a lot of things that went on in this house raising four kids. And I’m thankful I got to do it though it’s been hard and tough purging. Oh I’m sure I’ll be doing more once I get 'stuff' to my new house thinking 'why did I pack this'," she wrote on Instagram.
However, in a recent sneak peek of her show Little People, Big World, she says she is ready to move out and she wants it to happen as soon as possible because her ex-husband Matt Roloff will not like her be there any longer.
“I’m really hoping I’m not still here during the holidays,” the 55-year-old said to her son Zach Roloff and boyfriend Chris Marek in the clip. “Really? What’s your worst-case scenario?” Zach replied. “I’m here during the holidays and I don’t find a house until March,” Roloff responded, adding, “It’s just time to move on.”
If the mom of four continued to live with her ex, Matt Roloff, Zach said it would not be good for the family. “Oh, that would be terrible,” he said. “Dad would throw the biggest fit. I couldn’t imagine.”
Amy and Zach both agreed it would be best if she moved sooner than later. “I think my dad, he would get mad if my mom’s still in the house in March,” Zach said in a confessional interview. “And it’s just like, ‘Wait a minute. How long has it been that you said you’re going to move out? … What’s your plan here? What are you doing?’”
He added, “My mom’s got baggage with my dad too. It’s way healthier for her to move off quicker rather than later. So, I don’t know. I’m just saying that the tension’s going to grow between my dad and her.”
Therefore, Roloff says in the recent teaser of LPBW, "I personally know that I cannot just linger here and take forever in finding a house. The pressure that I feel plays heavy on my conscience thinking I'll find a house when I find a house but I don't have a lot of time to do that."
Marek, however, believes that it's also the nostalgia that is taking a toll on his fiance. "She's lived in this house [for] almost 30 years and I would imagine that's hard for anyone to leave a home that they have lived in for so long," said Marek.
And now comes the big update. Marek revealed that he will propose to Roloff again on the night of their anniversary to boost her spirits amid the stress. "But I have a big and special surprise to help, hopefully, Amy a little boost," he revealed. "I'm planning on proposing on the night of our anniversary."
Without a doubt, this is going to be a big day for the family and Roloff, hopefully, will get a break from the regular humdrum. Marek has earlier gone down on one knee in September 2019. And then on the mother-of-four has been looking forward to starting a new life with the love of her life. She, recently, dished out plans for her big day and why they decided to delay it.
“We’ve been dating for three years now, just celebrated our third year, quote, anniversary, and that’s when he asked me to marry him. I was so surprised. So shocked,” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “I am so, so very happy. He’s an awesome guy. I love him to death. And I’m so looking forward to this new journey of us. Together. So anyway! I’m engaged! I’m happy. Thank you all, so, so much.”
We hope Amy Roloff finds a suitable home soon and starts her new life on a positive note!
