Chris Marek and Amy Roloff spend a couple of nights together in her new house but he has still kept his home.
All relationships grow at their own pace. Some people prefer a whirlwind romance while others like to take measured steps towards their future. And, both those options plus everything in between is absolutely okay. How fast or slow a relationship should go must lie on the people involved and not be dictated by others.
Little People Big World's Amy Roloff is engaged to Chris Marek since September 2019 and they are planning to get married in the summer of 2021. The couple has been spending a lot of time together and spend some nights of the week together since she moved out of Roloff Farms after selling her share of the farm to her ex-husband Matt. It took her a while to find the perfect house, which she bought and can call her own now.
During an Instagram Live, Amy revealed that she's not planning to move in with Chris yet. She's asking him for a little space at the moment. She revealed, "No, we’re not living together full time. He is over about four days and three nights, or something like that. We definitely hang out. But he still has his house."
For the first time in 30 years, she can call a house just hers and she has a lot to fill it up with before allowing Chris to share it fulltime with her.
According to TVshowsace, during an episode of the TLC show, she said, "Last night, we had talked about living together and when that would all happen. I think I am very good with, you know, moving in with him while we’re engaged, planning for a wedding, and a marriage. But for right now, I’ve got 30 years of stuff to move. I mean, I’d like to get all settled in with the furniture or whatever furniture and stuff, and then [have him] move in and stuff like that." She had also revealed that she wants to "relish in the fact" that the house is hers. This has not stopped them from hanging out together at all.
Meanwhile, Chris has been fixing up her house, which they will share after they decided to move in, according to TVshowsace. She caught him laying some tiles in the yard and shared it with the world. "Caught him in action! 😳," she said. She mentioned how hard he worked "on getting a lot of projects done around the house for us. I’m so proud of him and can’t thank him enough. Love you babe!"
Usually, she has a supportive family but when she wanted to reveal to her son Zach about her engagement, she received an awkward response from him. "Besides a house and all that other stuff happening in my life, there's other news I gotta tell you about," said Amy, 55, as per PEOPLE. "I'm engaged," she told Zach and Tori, both of whom looked on in shock.
"Chris proposed to me yesterday for our third year anniversary. Well, you guys are shocked," the Roloff matriarch observed. "...I'm just hoping that you continue to welcome him [Chris] into the family and be a part of it all," she continued. "Because that means a lot to him."
Zach had been completely quiet during the moment and later said that he hopes that his parents don't talk about their personal lives on the show. "I told my mom and dad, 'Hey, these are one thing I don't want to talk about on camera. My one out-of-bounds is your guys' relationship and if that relationship goes anywhere else beyond what it is right now, I don't want to be surprised by any news of those relationships on camera," he said in a confessional.
"And then she went on camera and surprised me with that news. We've been doing this for 15 years and I've shown some of the most difficult and awkward moments of my life," said Zach. "There's just been one thing that entire time that I've asked my parents to do with me in private and my mom couldn't remember."
The family has moved on from the awkwardness since then and even came together when Zach's second child was born. They are currently shooting for the 21st season of the show.
