Chris Marek was born on August 10, 1962. He is known for being married to Amy Roloff, who stars in the T.L.C. series ‘Little People, Big World.’ Early in his career, he used to work as a photographer but then turned towards real estate with a business based in Portland, Oregon, and has been in the business for 23 years. He has sold an extensive number of homes across Portland and has made a name for himself in the business. He is well-liked by his clients.

After Roloff filed for divorce in 2015, she attended all sorts of mixers to get back in the dating game. Initially, she was paired with someone else, but she met Chris and they started talking. They started dating in 2017. Marek proposed to her on their third anniversary in 2019. Marek blends well with the Roloff family, considering Roloff still lived in the farmhouse with her ex-husband, even after the divorce.
