Last month, Jersey Shore fans were stunned when Jenni Farley filed for divorce from Roger Mathews.
The couple was beloved by fans, and their marriage was considered by many to be the most stable among the Shore cast.
Adding to the confusion over the situation is the fact that the decision to split was not a mutual one.
In fact, it seems as though Jenni made up her mind abruptly and without warning.
Mathews has pleaded with Farley to give him a second chance in a series of heartfelt social media posts.
Of course, fans of Shore won’t be surprised to learn that JWoww is not the sentimental type and was not swayed by Rogers first attempts at a reconciliation.
But to his credit, Mathews has not given up.
This week marked three years since he and Farley got married, and he celerated the occasion by posting the photo below on his Instagram page:
“This happened 3 years ago today. 8 years together total,” Mathews captioned the pic.
“3006 days together. Not one of them was a flawless day. Not one of them would I change.
“Happy Anniversary Babe @jwoww Wedding video in my bio cause I’m a corny traditionalist.”
Obviously, Roger’s post tugs at the old heartstrings, but for all we know, Jenni is right to stand her ground.
There have been no allegations of cheating or abuse, but those who know the couple best say they’ve been showing signs of being mismatched for quite some time.
“The split was a long time coming,” one insider tells Us Weekly.
“Everyone was hoping they’d work it out, but it didn’t happen.”
Mathews seemed to confirm as much in one of his videos:
“There’s no cheating or any dumb s—t or any juicy details,” the 43-year-old recently informed fans.
“She just grew tired of the repetitive pattern that we fell into … and [it was] not a good one,” he added.
Roger went on to say that he understands his wife’s reasons for leaving — but feels that things will be different if they give their marriage a second chance:
“I don’t blame her. I’m not done fighting. I’m gonna win my wife back,” Mathews told the camera.
“I’m gonna win her affection back, I’m gonna win her love back … We’re in counseling so there is hope. it ain’t over till the fat lady sings.”
JWoww, on the other hand, has been hesitant to speak about the split.
In her September filing, the mother of two cited only “irreconcilable differences” as her reason for leaving.
