Little People, Big World fans know all too well that after 29 years of marriage and 10 years of starring on the TLC show, Matt and Amy Roloff divorced. Now, the patriarch of the reality show family has moved on with Caryn Chandler, his one-time farm manager. And you'd think that Amy was Jennifer Aniston and Caryn was Angelina, judging by the way some fans have taken sides. When Matt shared a rare photo with his new love on Sunday, November 26, plenty of followers took the opportunity to voice their discontent.

Alongside a shot of himself and Chandler looking happy and relaxed after a night out, Roloff wrote, "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!"

One commenter criticized the father of four -- and the entire family -- stating, "I am team Amy. Matt seems to be a bully in a relationship. I think it's time for the family to get real jobs. Not reality TV," while another exclaimed, "Disgusting!!!!!" Some fans appeared to be questioning whether Chandler is in the relationship for the right reasons. "Her official title is farm manager," one follower shared. "She knows everything, including financials. I do hope, for his sake and his heart, that she's sincere."

Meanwhile, other fans praised Roloff for how he's handled this new chapter of his love life. "Matt it is SO good to see you happy again. Life does go on after a divorce and I'm glad to see you happy again," one wrote.

Another commenter noted, "I respect you for not flaunting your relationship publicly on TV," while one fan broke down the couple's saga for others in the thread: "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."

Obviously, LPBW fans are split on how to react to Roloff's new relationship. Ultimately, though, all they can -- and should -- hope for is that he and Amy are happy and healthy in this next chapter of their lives.
