Matt Roloff and Chris Marek apparently have two things in common:
1. Both have seen Amy Roloff naked.
2. Both have broad feelings of respect for the other.
All fans of Little People, Big World were aware of point number-one, of course, as Matt was married to Amy for about 27 years and Marek has been dated her for just over two now.
But point number-two is new and interesting information.
For several months, there's mostly just been assumed tension between Roloff and Marek, largely based on the simple fact that both have a romantic history with Amy.
Moreover, the pair are forced to see each other often because Amy and Matt still work together on their family farm and still live very close by to one another.
However, Marek just spoke to Radar Online and cleared up all chatter of any real issues between him and his girlfriend's ex-husband, saying the following to this rival website:
“I think [Amy] is more accepting of us being friends. In fact Matt and I just shared the day yesterday on the farm. Everyone is fine and doing well.”
It wasn't all that long ago that Amy made it clear how uncomfortable she was with Matt and Marek spending any real time together.
Marek admitted as much in a separate interview with Radar.
“To be honest, Amy was concerned in the beginning about how Matt and I might interact,” he said at the time, pretty much stating the obvious.
Again: Matt and Amy see each other very often.
They are both prominently involved in the lives of their four kids and two grandkids.
It makes perfect sense that Amy would be concerned about Marek interacted with Matt; the same way it would make sense for Matt to be concerned about the way Amy gets along with his serious girlfriend, Caryn Chandler.
She's pictured here with the reality show star:
As we've written for a long time, though, Matt and Amy have handled their divorce and their ongoing friendship as well as could possibly be imagined.
Just over a month ago we stated that the former couple has clearly moved on and asked fans: Why are you still giving them a hard time?!?
Heck, if Marek and Matt can extend an olive branch between themselves, we're pretty sure people who have never met either should be able to do the same.
The only issue we really care about is which couple will get engaged first:
Marek and Roloff or Roloff and Chandler?
“We are not talking about marriage yet, but everything is going well - very strong, all good," Chris tells Radar.
He added back in March:
“I’m excited. We had a good year, we’ve done a lot of stuff and hopefully other people will enjoy the adventures we have. It’s been a good year."
Okay, fine... so he'snow the best spoken person on the planet.
But he makes Amy happy and that's all that matters to us!
