Matt and Amy Roloff, the stars of TLC's "Little People, Big World," have separated after 26 years of marriage.

"Though we have weathered many storms together, we recently made the tough decision to engage in a trial separation," the couple said in a statement. "Matt remains living on the farm in our guesthouse and we work together every day on the farm, on our business endeavors and most importantly, raising our amazing children."

The couple, who run a farm and event center in Helvetia, Ore., have four children.

"Amy and I stuck it out for years and years when maybe we shouldn't have," Matt Roloff says in a clip for a TLC special airing March 25. "I never quite felt at home in my own home so something needed to change. So we needed to try something different."

"I think what Matt and I failed to do over many, many years is learn to live together," Amy Roloff says in the clips.

Matt Roloff says in the clip that the couple separated around Thanksgiving.
