‘Little People, Big World’: Audrey Roloff Just Admitted on Instagram Her Marriage Isn’t Perfect

The latest season of Little People, Big World showcased the drama between Matt and Amy Roloff, but we can’t forget there are plenty of other Roloffs who are doing great things off-screen. Jeremy, Matt and Amy’s son, and his wife, Audrey, decided to take a step back from reality TV and focus on their own projects. And because they have a tight-knit, covenant marriage, their projects are all about how to have a beautiful love story and successful relationship.

From the looks of their Instagrams, Audrey and Jeremy are living the perfect romance — but Audrey just reminded everyone that she can get real about life, too. Here’s what she recently posted about her marriage.

Jeremy and Audrey Roloff give tons of marriage advice via their blogs and book

If there’s one thing Jeremy and Audrey are known for, it’s giving plenty of advice regarding how to find lasting love via social media, their blogs, and their book, A Love Letter Life. Even before they wrote their book, they started a website titled Beating 50 Percent that’s all about helping couples have a great relationship with God so their relationship can thrive. The mission on their website even says, “Mission: To inspire covenant marriages to beat average, to encourage husbands and wives to give more than 50% to their spouse, and to revive marriages that are indispensable – marked by fixing instead of throwing away.”

Jeremy and Audrey also get super personal in A Love Letter Life. While they only have a few years of marriage under their belt, the two of them have mentioned many times in the past that they hope to inspire others with their love story. “We believe that our story, with all its imperfections, vulnerabilities, and failures, will awaken your desire to pursue a love that reflects the thoughtfulness, intention, patience, beauty and timelessness of a love letter,” Audrey captioned this Instagram post.

Fans find it hard to relate to their incredible love story

This is just one of the thousands of comments, messages, and reviews we’ve seen over the past week We believe more than ever that this book has the power to revive a generation of creative, intentional, and faithful love stories. READ ⁣ “Wow. Just…Wow. The weeks and months leading up to the book release, I was just convinced that it was 2 great people working hard to advertise their book. So I resisted the pressure. Hard. I prayed and literally asked God to stop showing me the book because I really couldn't get it. But He prompted me to purchase it. I pre-ordered it and awaited its arrival. I opened the box, excited. And left it on my nightstand. All. Week. Long. ⁣ ⁣ And as I saw post after post about the book, I just couldn't Bring myself to read it. I felt like I was just jumping on a bandwagon. But The Holy Spirit led me to open the book this morning while my daughter napped, and I cannot tell you how much it blessed me. Between naps, and feedings, and any available moment, I read the book. ⁣ ⁣ I am one who *hates* when people mark up their books. And I am not one to do it. (How can I give it away if it's marked up, right?) But page after page, the Lord just used you to fill my heart, to encourage my soul. There just arent enough words to express my gratitude for the openness, vulnerability, and emotion shared in this book. ⁣ ⁣ This book came at such a vital time in my marriage, and in my life. I have really been struggling lately, feeling distant. We just had a baby, and I feel further apart than ever. But this book just set a new fire in me. A desire to pursue my husband. To make my marriage more of a priority. To create a love story that my daughter can aspire to have when she grows up. Your story made me realize that no, there isn't "the one," but there is one who I vowed to be one with, and it is my duty to protect, pray for, and pursue that one and the love we share. ⁣ ⁣ Thank you again for your words, for your story, and for the incredible work you put into this book. Thank you for praying over your work and pouring your souls into this book. Spirit gets Spirit, and mine is filled. May God bless you abundantly. I’m grateful.”⁣ ⁣ #ALoveLetterLife

Audrey and Jeremy seemingly have it all figured out — but many of their fans aren’t actually buying into their near-perfect persona. Reddit users have stated how they really about the couple giving marriage advice, as they’ve only been married since 2014. “Don’t people say that the people who post super lovey dovey things about their relationship on social media are the ones who have terrible relationships? Like they’re hiding something?” a Reddit user said. And another added, “They’ve been married for like 2 years now, right? They’re basically experts at this point.”

It’s not just Reddit where fans are making comments, too. Another fan commented on this interview of Jeremy and Audrey with, “I’ve been married 31 years and as far as I see not everything works for everyone. They certainly haven’t put in the time or years to give advice.”

WARNING‼️vulnerable post: ⁣ ⁣ 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 the 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.

Perhaps Audrey is catching on to what others are saying about her marriage or perhaps she just wanted to get real with her followers, but her recent Instagram post shows us a whole different side to the star. “To be honest, the last few weeks have been hard on our marriage,” she captioned the post. “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.” She then went on to say that her Instagram doesn’t give her followers the whole story, and there have been plenty of “compiling complaints” and “disrespectful attitudes” between her and Jeremy.

Audrey then added some food for thought about the photo she posted specifically. “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.'”

Fans took to the comments to praise Audrey’s vulnerability, too. “Love the truth behind this post Auj,” one follower commented. And another added, “Thank you for sharing your lives with the world. It shows you are real and what normal people go through.” Perhaps this sort of honesty is exactly what Audrey needed to show to get back into the good graces of her followers after all.
