Audrey Roloff has a seemingly happy and healthy marriage.
This appears to be the case even though the Little People, Big World star helps anchor a reality television show…
… and we all know what fate typically befalls couples that appear on these sort of programs.
What we’re trying to say is this:
Audrey Roloff may very well be someone from whom you should take marital advice.
She and Jeremy definitely make their relationship work.
But the TLC personality has come under fire of late for not just offering up words of wisdom for her fellow wives around the Internet – but for clearly trying to profit off these words.
Take a recent Instagram post, for example.
On Wednesday, Roloff shared the photo above and included with it a lengthy caption.
It begins as follows:
To find and still seek, now that is love. This is the lifeblood behind our mission @beating50 .
We hope to inspire couples to keep seeking, keep pursuing, and keep learning how to love their husbands and wives beyond their wedding day. T
he pursuit shouldn’t end with, “I do.” What fun is that? Your marriage (or future marriage) should be a lifelong love story.
The point here is not a new one.
Nor is it a misguided one.
Audrey is basically saying couples need to work on their marriage and not take their partners for granted.
We very much agree with that theme.
But then Roloff continues:
Marriage is not about saying “I do” in a moment, it’s about living out “I do” in the mundane everyday moments #stayingido.
Your actions and attitude should reflect the promise you made to love – for better or for worse. To “still seek” implies a relentless pursuit.
LOVE IS A VERB.
This is not the first time Audrey has waxed very poetically about her definition of love.
She did so HERE, too.
Both times, meanwhile, Roloff concluded her message with an offer and a link that got her in trouble.
"Want one of these rad sweatshirts “Love is a verb” sweatshirts (also comes in black)? Grab one for 10% off with code LOVE2018 – link in bio shop.beating50percent.com," concluded the mother of one this time around.
And it’s just….YEESH. Come on, Auds.
A handful of followers find it very distasteful that Roloff included constant links to her business website when talking about things as personal as love and religion.
It’s hard to take Roloff’s theme very seriously when it’s clear she’s just saying it to sell some sweatshirts.
Last summer, fans had this same issue when it came to how frequently Audrey brought up the topic of God.
Is she serious about her faith?
Does she truly love her husband?
Of course and of course.
Moreover, we aren’t suggesting that she isn’t free to make money off her clothing line. She absolutely has this right and absolutely should be an entrepreneur if she so desires.
But perhaps she should stop mixing personal advice with her business endeavor.
It just leaves a bad taste in our mouths.
Do you feel the same way?
