Are Jeremy Roloff And Audrey Roloff Getting Divorced?

What is going on with Jeremy Roloff and Audrey Roloff? The two have been joined at the hip nearly since they met and pretty much always present a unified front. That's why people freaked out at Audrey's recent Instagram post in which she got super vulnerable and said, in part, that she has been "fighting, crying, and struggling" in recent weeks and that she and Jeremy have been having a rough go of it. Audrey mentioned that the couple is feeling "overworked" and "exhausted." Well that's super-relatable! They have a one-year-old daughter, Ember Jean, and new parents universally feel exhausted. Does it go deeper than that, though? Are Jeremy Roloff and Audrey Roloff getting divorced?

1. Audrey's IG post

On Wednesday, June 26th, Audrey posted a photo of her and Jeremy and captioned it: "To be honest, the last few weeks have been hard on our marriage. We have been working through some things and let’s just say there has been a lot of “heated fellowship,” morning hugs missed, and date nights postponed. We are overworked and exhausted from the pace we’ve been running for too long. We know we need to slow down but as Dallas Willard puts it, “we intend what is right, but we avoid the life that would make it a reality.” Instead, we keep running, keep pushing, keep producing and keep squeezing all the margin out of our lives. It’s robbing our joy, stealing our peace, and hindering our ability to love... ⁣

...If you’ve ever looked at or read a post from us and thought “They must just have it all together.” Volume up for this one....WE DON’T We fight, struggle, cry, and face challenges just like anyone. I’m saying this here because if you look at my Instagram feed from the past 3 weeks you don’t see the long tearful conversations, the hurtful remarks, the compiling complaints, the critical spirits, the prideful inner dialogue, or our unloving and disrespectful attitudes. You don’t see the full picture.⁣..

...A few nights ago we went for an evening drive to talk through some struggles and we stumbled upon a trestle..It was like God knew we needed something that would force us both to smile Although you can’t tell by the photo, this wasn’t a happy night. I cried shortly after we snapped this photo. I’m saying this because I don’t want you to be deceived by the highlight reel that is “the gram.” We all have a messy behind the scenes reality. ALL OF US. Even the people you follow on social media who seem to be the most “real.” Even they have struggles they don’t share, and hurts they don’t publicize. We all do. And that’s ok! But that also means we need to remind ourselves when we’re scrolling this space that it’s not real life.⁣

So friend, if you’re comparing your life, marriage, kids, house, job, body, etc. to what you see on Instagram, remember it’s NOT the full picture. And I just want to remind ya, you are enough. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. And you are loved."

2. Jeremy's reaction

Jeremy reacted to Audrey's long, emotional post. How could he not? After all, they're a couple in the public eye. The 29-year-old father took to his Instagram on Wednesday, June 26th and said:“If you’re anything like me, communication, and expressing my emotions doesn’t come very easily. It’s something I need to work on. It’s been a rough few weeks (which is not what you see on Instagram) and we’ve needed communication more than ever.” He went on to explain the "overworked" comment that Audrey made. Apparently, the book tour for A Love Letter Life messed up their schedule and the couple have been "off" ever since. He said: "We got out of our weekly habit of communicating and expressing our thoughts."

3. Amy Roloff weighed in

Jeremy's mom Amy Roloff saw her daughter-in-law's post and added her two cents, saying: "Life is real. We usually show the Best on IG and you're right. There is a lot more that's also real behind the scenes others forget about and don't see." She is so right.
