The countdown begins for Matt Roloff.
And he knows it too.
The Little People, Big World star has been dating Caryn Chandler for years and has been outspoken lately about proposing to her.
It seems certain that these two will one day walk down the aisle… it’s just that it’s getting harder to predict exactly when that day will arrive.
In the latest episode of his family’s reality show, Matt really addressed the delay in his engagement, blaming a life situation that finds him “in limbo” as the reason he hasn’t put a ring on her yet.
“It just doesn’t make sense to us, for me to propose, for us to get married, until we have somewhere we can land,” he explained on the air.
“And none of our houses work for each other. So it’s very, very disappointing.”
Matt is busy building his dream home on his property in Oregon and is residing in a mobile home until construction is complete.
Chandler, for her part, hasn’t publicly commented on her boyfriend’s putting off the big question, but she seems to be making some pretty big life decisions these days.
According to recent reports, Caryn plans to move to Arizona full-time.
She even plans to do it regardless of whether or not TLC picks up Little People, Big World for another season, supposedly sick and tired of all of Roloff’s infighting.
As loyal viewers well know, there has been extreme tension between Matt and his sons since the former put a portion of his farm property up for sale in May 2022.
“Matt really wants another season, but Caryn is completely fed up,” a source told The Sun a few weeks ago about Chandler’s position when it comes to reintroducing her on the small screen next year.
“She thinks there are too many disagreements with what they want to say and do on the air, and too much family drama.
“She feels like she’s the one who’s always stuck in the middle trying to mediate…
“Caryn is ready for Matt to hand over the farm and they can go to Arizona and retire. That would be her dream scenario, but it hasn’t been decided yet if Matt is okay with it.”
Meanwhile, Little People, Big World viewers have seen Matt and Caryn talk about marriage in the past, and just last season, Caryn accidentally referred to Matt as her husband.
“I’m married to the man who owns a pumpkin patch,” she said on camera before realizing she had misspoke. “I’m not married. Did I just say married?”
“Are almost married to a guy with the pumpkin patch, is the way I might put it,” replied Matt.
That was back then, of course.
Now? All this time later?
Caryn isn’t yet married to the owner of a pumpkin patch, and people are beginning to wonder: will she ever be?
