Cody Herpin and Jodie Sweetin’s Tale Had A Las Vegas Connection
I know I began the article with the intention to disassociate the persona of Cody from being Jodie’s ex. But she is after all a significant element of his life story. So, to know Cody Herpin, references to her are inevitable.
Codie Herpin and Jodie Sweetin’s marriage was a Las Vegas union. They tied the knot on July 14th, 2007 after 2 months of courtship. The venue was the Church of the West on the famous strip. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out to be a happily ever after. They went their separate ways after 3 years of togetherness in 2010.
Why Did Cody Herpin and Jodie Sweetin Get A Divorce?
Even though Cody Herpin and Jodie Sweetin split in 2010, the uncoupling began 16 months after their marriage. Jodie filed for legal separation in 2008. So, what went wrong in that short “blessed” span?
The reason is not that crystal clear as Jodie didn’t “want to be disrespectful to him”, but it looks like unemployment got in their way. Cody Herpin left his job soon after his marriage to Jodie. He allegedly made excuses for failing to find a new one leaving Jodie with the task of meeting the bulk financial requirements. She did that with support from her parents and from the residual payments, she received from Full House. This gave birth to “irreconcilable differences” and eventually the separation.
Cody Herpin Filed A Suit Against His Ex-wife Jodie
The legal battle continued even after their divorce. This time the complaint came from the side of Cody Herpin. In 2010, Jodie Sweetin released her autobiography named UnSweetined. It talked about her personal struggles with drugs and alcohol but also depicted Cody in a “false light” according to the man himself.
One passage of the book read that “During the day, the baby was 100 percent my responsibility. Cody, meanwhile played video games”. It was also mentioned that while she was recovering from her C-section, Cody “would try to make me laugh because he knew it hurt when I laughed”. Sweetin believed “that and video games were his two forms of entertainment”.
All of these allegations hurt Cody’s sentiments and he retaliated with a lawsuit and a clear message. And, that is, he wasn’t a video game junkie or the “uncaring, vindictive, unsupportive and disinterested” party in Jodie’s pregnancy.
