Jodie Sweetin has three ex-husbands. After marrying her first husband Shaun Holguin at age 20, she began struggling with addiction.

After Full House wrapped, Jodie began studying at Chapman College where she met police officer Shaun Holguin. They got married on Jul. 27, 2002, when she was 20 years old, per E!.

At the time, Jodie told the magazine that she was taking a break from acting: "I don't mind doing occasional guest appearances on shows, but I have other things I'd like to do in my life now. I would like to get into teaching actors and starting a family with Shaun,” she explained.

And while she did do different things in her new life, they weren't the ones she had planned.

During her marriage to Shaun, Jodie tried crystal meth for the first time and quickly became addicted. Neither Shaun nor her family knew she was using it. In 2005, Jodie landed in the hospital after a night of crazy partying and decided to tell her family and get help.

While residing in a sober-living house, she and Shaun decided to call it quits. "My husband and I went through some definite trust issues because of all the lying," she told People in 2006. "He and I are going through a divorce, but we're still really good friends. It's not ugly."

Their marriage quickly fell apart. Cody left his job to become a stay-at-home dad which put a financial stressor on the couple. While Jodie still had savings left from Full House, they were dwindling.

In Nov. 2008, she filed for a legal separation, stating in court documents that their house was in foreclosure and all of their bills were overdue. What unfolded was an ugly custody battle where Jodie temporarily lost her daughter after relapsing. However, this finally pushed her to get clean.

“My boyfriend and I have been together for four years now, and he really did an amazing job with it all. At first, he and I had a long-distance relationship. He was in Brooklyn, and I was here in [Los Angeles] for three and a half years, and it was slow and nice," she told host Allison Kugel, adding that Mescal has been “very good at letting [Zoie and Beatrix] warm up to him."
