Divorce can be hard enough as it is. But when it comes to a "/Hollywood divorce" -- or a marriage that unfolds in front of cameras -- all bets are off. Anyone who watches Little People, Big World understands there's tension between Matt and Amy Roloff as they try to navigate life as business partners after nearly 30 years of marriage. Still, certain fans of the beloved reality family can't seem to shake the feeling Matt's girlfriend Caryn had a part in the demise of his marriage -- fueling growing speculation that Matt Roloff cheated on Amy while they were married. (Yikes.)

  • It's practically impossible these days for Amy to share anything on social media without a fan sounding off.

    "It’s been a fantastic weekend and day today. My brother Roger and his family are visiting for a week over memorial weekend and I’m so happy," Amy Roloff writes in her Instagram post. "They got to meet Chris and cousins meeting cousins and second cousins. His daughters first time to visit the Farm and a first visit to the ocean. Lots of memories being made."

  • Some feel the matriarch is being "bitter" towards her ex and needs to get over everything that happened.

    This isn't the first time people accused Amy of being "jealous" of Caryn (among other things).

  • Others speculate editing is likely a factor, to which Amy agrees.

  • Even with the criticism, a number of fans can't shake the feeling Caryn and Matt possibly started seeing each other while he was married.

    Some believe Matt hinted at cheating on Amy in his 2007 book, Little People, Big Values. "While Amy puts commitments at or near the top of her list, I would put it further down," Matt Roloff wrote in his book. "Amy tends to be more of a committed-to-a-fault kind of person, while I see most commitments -- with some very notable exceptions -- as flexible and negotiable."

  • "... To know they're dating ... to work beside Caryn, it's not healthy for me," Amy Roloff confessed during a May 29 LPBW episode.

    "When I first met Matt, I was new to Oregon, and I was looking for some part-time work and got hired," Caryn Candler, Matt's girlfriend, revealed during the episode. "So I meet him, but I didn't really get to know him for quite a long time .... I waited a while [to date], but after my divorce I definitely dated for a couple years .... There's always going to be some crossover and awkwardness working with Amy," she continues. "I work very very hard not to have that happen. I hope that, over time, our relationship can get better."


  • "It was completely unexpected how life changes and Amy and I grew apart," Matt added during the show.

    "I never thought in my wildest dreams I would be divorced this stage in my life," he continued about his romance with Caryn. "Caryn went through a divorce. I think we both realized, wow, the person I really care about is right under my nose. It suddenly is very different. Caryn is a super amazing companion."

  • A number of Roloff fans are pointing the finger at Matt and Caryn messing around while he was married.

  • Okay ... let's take a breather.

    For starters, there's no receipts that Matt and Caryn messed around while he was still married to Amy. Yes, things are a bit tense with all parties involved, but let's just calm down as we don't know all the facts -- nor is it really our business.

    Matt and Caryn are happy, just as Amy and Chris are happy. One can only hope any fences that need mending will with time.
