Cuoco has had various romantic relationships before. She, for instance, dated her costar, Johnny Galecki, for two years. Galecki plays the physicist Leonard who ends up marrying Cuoco’s character, Penny. The two secretly dated for two years before calling it quits in 2009. In October 2011, she got engaged to Josh Resnik but called off the engagement in 2012. She then got engaged to tennis ace Sweeting in September 2013. The two had been dating for three months. The couple, however, mutually ended their marriage in 2015.

Cuoco hasn’t had nice things to say about her ex-husband. She noted in an interview that Sweeting ruined the concept of marriage for her. She said that after her marriage to Sweeting, she never wanted to get married ever again. Cuoco acknowledged that after her marriage to the tennis player ended, she needed to go through a realization phase and find herself. She noted that she decided to close herself off from any romance, and that path led her to her current husband, equestrian Karl Cook.

Cuoco covered up her wedding tattoo with a larger one

When Cuoco got married to Sweeting, she got an indelible ink to mark the big day. The tattoo was located on her back and was her wedding date written in roman numerals. When her marriage ended, Cuoco decided to cover up the tattoo so that she wouldn’t need to get reminded about the short-lived marriage.

Cuoco shared an Instagram post on the tattoo seat while the artist covered up the wedding date. Sharing with her six million-plus followers, Cuoco showed her new ink, saying that it was meant to cover up the last one, according to MSN. She also acknowledged that she wasn’t ever going to get another tattoo marking a wedding day. The cover-up tattoo is of a giant moth.
