Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Jenni “JWoww” Farley has filed for divorce from her husband of three years, Roger Matthews, citing irreconcilable differences, and in a new Instagram video, Matthews says he doesn’t blame her. According to Matthews, the couple got into a bad rut, and Farley got tired of it.
“My wife filed for divorce,” Matthews said. “It’s true. I’m just going to keep it simple. I don’t blame her. There’s no cheating or any dumb s–t or any juicy details. She just grew tired of the repetitive pattern that we fell into. Again, I am not going to get into detail, but it was a repetitive pattern and not a good one.”

Matthews went on to say that he is not done fighting, and he is going to win his wife back. He promised that he would win back Farley’s affection and love, and he has no intention of being a single dad. The truck driver added that they are in counseling, and there is still hope. So, it isn’t “over til the fat lady sings.”
In Farley’s complaint, she wrote that she and Matthews have irreconcilable differences which caused their marriage to break down over the past six months. She added that the court should dissolve the marriage because “there is no prospect of reconciliation.”
As Radar Online reports, Farley and Matthews tied the knot in October 2015, but things have not been smooth for the couple. Earlier this year, he wrote on Instagram that Farley left him for a “jacked dude from the club named Billy,” who can flex his pec muscles to the tune of Jingle Bells. Later, he said that he was joking and made it all up.
Farley and Mathews have two kids, Meilani, 4, and Greyson, 2, and their relationship saw further stress when Greyson suffered through a developmental delay. Farley says that people reassured her that her son would talk around one or one-and-a-half, but when he wasn’t responding to words she got concerned.

Farley said that she would ask her husband if he had seen Greyson respond to his name, but it was more about him not putting concepts and words together. He currently attends behavior and occupational therapy three times a week, and Farley admits that it has taken an emotional toll.
JWoww says that they don’t know if Greyson has a speech issue because he doesn’t speak, and they are trying to make him understand what words are. But now, he does know the color blue, and he is learning sign language.
As for the divorce, it seems as though it was a long time coming. The couple put their home up for sale in December 2017 but took it off the market in February.
