Though Amy Roloff’s 27-year marriage to Matt Roloff may have ended, she hasn’t given up on the institution. The Little People, Big World star has been dating her boyfriend, Chris Marek, for two and a half years.
Amy and Chris the couple!
Some people suggested that Chris only became popular after he went public with his relationship with Amy.
Amy and Chris announced they were officially dating at the end of 2017.
The truth is, he is quite famous on his own. Chris has worked in the real estate business for about two decades. He is also a romantic at heart. For Valentine’s day, he bought Amy a sparkling diamond necklace that she showed off on her Instagram.
Open to marriage
In an exclusive sneak peek of Tuesday’s episode of Little People, Big World from People, Amy and her boyfriend, talk about long-term commitment while on a camping trip with their friends Ron and Beth.
While the couples sat by the fire, the topic turns to marriage. Chris then jokes about how Ron “almost lost his finger” from “lack of circulation” due to his ring from a previous marriage. Amy playfully reprimands him before sharing her own perspective.
When Ron asks Chris how he feels about marriage, he says he is not against the institution, having seen a lot of failed marriages and divorces in his family. He said:
I mean, I saw a lot of examples of people that loved each other but could not live with each other. But I’m certainly not against marriage, I never thought I’d be this age and still single.
Amy, while admitting marriage is very important to her, told Chris:
I’m glad to see that you’re not against marriage, because that would be a problem.
Fans warn Amy
When the matriarch of the Roloff family found love after her divorce, it was a shock for many fans of the show.
Skeptics who didn’t like Chris said that he was just interested in the fame of the show. Amy’s fans also attacked her new boyfriend accusing him of hidden intentions, warning her to stay away from Chris.
Despite all the warnings, Amy seems happy with her new relationship. She often posts photos of her and Chris together during their joint vacations and family celebrations.
Fingers crossed, there might be wedding bells ringing soon for the couple!
