Amy Jo Roloff and Chris Marek's Relationship
Marek and Amy have been dating since 2017 after they met each other in a blind dating event. Amy was initially partnered with another bachelor, but she became friends with Marek and started hanging out with him.
He asked her on a motorbike trip, and the duo went across Oregon, Washington, and Canada in the summer of 2017. They slowly fell in love with each other and eventually got engaged two years later.
Recently, the pair got married in a beautiful ceremony at the Roloff farm, which Amy used to share with her ex-husband. They exchanged their vows in front of 146 close family and friends.
The entire event was exclusively covered by People. Amy looked fabulous in a sleeveless traditional white gown, while Marek was dressed in a black suit as they celebrated their love outside in front of a gazebo.
Michael Williams officiated the couple's wedding, and Amy walked down the aisle to 'Heart to Heart,' a song written by Marek's best man, Rick Hinkes.
The Macey Gard Band played throughout the unforgettable occasion, including during the couple's first dance to the band's song 'At the End of the Day.'
The COVID-19 pandemic caused some difficulties in their wedding, but everything was worth it to the pair when they walked out as husband and wife.
Amy Jo Roloff's Previous Relationship
In 1987, Amy met Matt at a Little People of America convention. The two fell in love and married on September 12, 1987. Soon, they gave birth to four children — twins Jeremy and Zachary, Molly, and Jacob.
Their 27 years of marriage ended in March 2014 when the couple openly declared their desire to divorce. The main reason for the divorce was Matt's infidelity.
Amy discussed the infidelity in her new book, A Little Me. Matt was having an affair with Caryn Chandler while still being married to Amy.
Chandler worked at Roloff Farms in Hillsboro, Oregon, for a long time. Matt spent a lot of time at the farm, and Chandler used to be with him as well. Initially, she thought it was all work, but later, she realized what was going on.
She snooped around and found pictures and messages between Matt and Chandler. Amy realized he was cheating on her, so the pair eventually settled for a divorce.
It was evident that Amy was hurt by the divorce because she did multiple Facebook lives discussing it. Regardless, she kept it together for their children and family.
The pair announced their divorce on June 5, 2015, and in May 2016, the divorce was finalized.
