As you might recall, Jacob Roloff quit Little People, Big World a few years ago because he said the show was scripted and phony and fake.

Ever since, Jacob has vowed to keep things real.

Which explains why many of his followers are not a bit concerned.

A couple weeks ago, Jacob posted a message on social media — which was unusual in and of itself.

This is not someone who seeks the spotlight or publishes anything very often on Twitter and/or Instagram.

Jacob, meanwhile, left fans especially concerned because he wrote "Feel like pure sh-t just want her back" and then shared the dictionary definition of "ignorance."

Weird, right? And seemingly a pretty terrible sign for his marriage to wife Isabel, right?

The pair got married in September 2019 and have always come across, on Instagram at least, as a truly happy couple.

They spend more of their time traveling around the Pacific Northwest with their dogs and appear to have found a legitimate soulmate in one another, considering their love and their mutual interests/values.

But… have we been mistaken?

Is there trouble in apparent paradise?

No, actually, according to Jacob himself.

Responding to rumors of problems in his marriage, Jacob fired back shortly after his original post, leaving a remark that reads as follows:

"This is a meme fyi and is a reference in jest to some ministry developments in the Christian world

"Watch THE FAMILY on netflix."

(The Family is a documentary that tells the story of an enigmatic conservative Christian group known as The Family that wields major influence in Washington, D.C., in pursuit of its global ambitions.)

It seems pretty clear that Jacb was serious and that things are all good between him and his wife, considering what Amy Roloff recently posted on her own Instagram page.

Along with photos of herself, her son and her daughter-in-law, Amy penned a caption that reads:

And they’re off! Going to miss these two everyday @jacobroloff45 and @isabelsofiarock They’re back on the road, van life, and looking for a [sic] hone for one day soon. Thankfully not to far far away.

They came over for Mother’s Day and gave me flowers. This mama was happy.

Phew. It’s very nice to see what Jacob and Isabel are doing well and heading back on the road.

Jacob, meanwhile, reconciled awhile back with his loved ones after throwing them under a bus in the summer of 2016.

Wrote Roloff back when he walked away from Little People, Big World:

"For the sake of ‘the episode’ and ratings I’ve seen a lot of STORYLINES drawn up (loosely) about our lives, and when I was standing here, behind the scenes and watching it from an outside perspective I just couldn’t stop laughing…"

He added at the time:

"Laughing at how hard the producers have to try to get us to follow the talking points, and at how ridiculous the talking points are."

Several months later, though, Jacob admitted he was speaking as an immature teenager, although he has said that reality television in general is ridiculous.

He’s sort of right, isn’t he? But still… it’s entertaining!
