At just 31 years of age, Jodie Sweetin has been married three times, and now it looks like she's on her way to racking up a third divorce as well. Today, the Full House actress filed for a legal separation from her husband, Morty Coyle.
It was just over a year ago that the couple got married in March 2012. Coyle stood by her side during her battle with crystal meth and alcohol, and it seemed like the troubled life she'd led since her days as Stephanie Tanner were looking bright. So this news is especially sad.
To end a marriage after just a little more than a year, we can only guess that things weren't good for long. According to TMZ, she cited the standard "irreconcilable differences," when she filed, which tells us little. As for how this separation is affecting her, a source told Us Weekly that she's doing okay.
She seems in good spirits. She's sober still so she's in way better shape than last time. It's definitely true. I guess it's not working out.
So that's good at least. Hopefully she can stay strong through this trying time, if for no other reason than her children, including 5-year-old Zoie Herpin (her daughter with ex-husband Cody Herpin) and 2-year-old Beatrix, of whom she's seeking full custody. She's also asking for ownership of their 2000 Toyota Avalon as well as "a 50/50 split of their $200 Kohl's credit card balance," which just seems unbearably tragic that for all her former fame, that's what she's seeking.
Staying in a marriage isn't always the right thing to do, and maybe this is what Jodie needs to do to stay on the positive, sober path she's been on in recent years. Hopefully, though, after three failed marriages, she will proceed with caution in the love department as she goes forward.
