Nearly two months after “Jersey Shore” star Jenni “JWoww” Farley opened up about her son’s developmental delays, the mom of two has filed for divorce.
JWoww and her husband, Roger Mathews, have been married since 2015. The pair got together during the first few seasons of the hit reality show.
However, although JWoww has already filed for divorce, Mathews took to Instagram to say he’s not ready to give up on their marriage just yet.
He said, in part:
“My wife filed for divorce, it’s true. I’m just going to keep it simple. I don’t blame her. There is no cheating or any dumb s**t. There are no juicy details. It’s just, she just grew tired of the repetitive pattern that we fell into. Again, I’m not going to get into any detail, but it was a repetitive pattern and not a good one.
But here’s what’s also true. I’m not done fighting. I’m going to win my wife back. I’m gonna win her affection back. I’m gonna win her love back. I have no intention of being a single dad. We are in counseling, so there is hope. It ain’t over until the fat lady sings.”
Mathews later added in the caption:
Praying for a better tomorrow. Sorry world, I’m taking a day off from praying for you today and I’m just gonna pray for my family. Hope springs eternal.
He also went on to call himself a “good father,” but a “horrible husband” and the “worst lover ever” in his Instagram bio.
JWoww and her husband have two children together, a 4-year-old daughter, Meilani Alexandra Mathews and a 2-year-old son, Greyson Valor Mathews.
Three days after news broke that JWoww had filed for divorce and Mathews publicly vowed to continue fighting for their marriage, the father of two posted a photo of him, his wife, his daughter and another little girl with the “Disney JR squad”:

A source told People that the pair, who have been together since 2010, “always seemed very stable and very much in love”:
“Roger was always supporting her at events, nights out or any place she needed to be. I always thought he was a good partner for her — much better than the guy she dated before him.
I don’t think she will find anyone who’s more devoted to her than Roger is. You can see how much he loves his kids and what a good father he is. Hopefully, they work out their differences.”
According to E! News, the couple is focused on “putting their kids first” during this difficult time.
