The Golden Bachelor: Have Gerry Turner & Theresa Nist Separated After Their Fairytale Wedding?

The inaugural season of The Golden Bachelor ended with Gerry Turner getting down on one knee and proposing to Theresa Nist, but the pair may have separated. Gerry, the widower and retired restaurateur, hit it off with multiple single women during the season but eliminated all but Theresa and Leslie Fhima. Though Gerry told both of the final two women that he loved them, he ultimately gave his final rose to fellow widower Theresa and sent a heartbroken Leslie home in tears. The show was such a hit that ABC is currently in production for The Golden Bachelorette.

The Golden Bachelor: Have Gerry Turner & Theresa Nist Separated After Their Fairytale Wedding?

Gerry and Theresa wasted no time planning their Golden Bachelor wedding. Despite the revelation that Gerry had been in a serious relationship prior to filming, the couple announced they’d be getting married in just a few short weeks and on national television. The dream wedding aired on January 4 in a highly anticipated television special attended by Bachelor Nation royalty, including the women Gerry rejected. On top of that, the season had high ratings, so the happy couple had lots of people rooting for them. However, are Gerry and Theresa living separate lives now?

Are Gerry & Theresa Separated?

Long Distance Relationship

According to TMZ, only three months after The Golden Bachelor wedding, Gerry and Theresa are currently living in different states. TMZ’s sources insist the couple is still going strong despite living so far apart. Gerry is reportedly living at his lake house in Indiana, while Theresa continues to live in New Jersey. One of the issues keeping them apart is that moving is such a hassle. They’ve both lived separate lives for a long time and accumulated a lot of things. The thought of packing everything up and combining it all in a new place is overwhelming for the newlyweds.

However, this doesn’t mean Gerry and Theresa don’t see each other. The sources reported that Gerry and Theresa go back and forth to visit each other often, an arrangement that is currently working for them. On top of that, Theresa is still working on her successful career as a compliance officer, and she hasn’t decided what she’s going to do about her job. Gerry and Theresa also like being near their large families. One of the biggest barriers to their cohabitation appears to be that they simply haven’t decided on where to live permanently.

Gerry and Theresa are reportedly considering Charleston, South Carolina, as a good middle ground, especially with Theresa’s son and grandchildren in the area.

Gerry & Theresa’s Journey

A Whirlwind Romance

The Golden Bachelor season 1 couple, Gerry and Theresa, had a whirlwind romance that played out for the world to see. ABC announced that the 72-year-old Indiana resident would be the lead of The Bachelor spinoff in July 2023. The names of the 22 women chosen to vie for Gerry’s heart were made public in August 2023. Years before appearing as The Golden Bachelor, Gerry had been married to his high school sweetheart, Toni, for 43 years until she passed away in 2017 after a brief illness. Though he claimed he hadn’t dated since her death, that turned out to be untrue.

Theresa was also a widower, as her husband passed away several years ago, and she was ready for love again. Theresa was looking for a partner who could be her best friend during the next chapter of her life. Gerry wanted a partner who was high-energy and lived an active lifestyle. They hit it off right away, and Theresa was one of the front-runners throughout the season despite running into minor drama with some of the other women who were competing for Gerry’s heart.

Reportedly, Gerry and Theresa are still madly in love despite living apart. A long-distance arrangement doesn’t work for everyone, but it works for them right now until Gerry and Theresa choose a place to live. They both like being close to their families and are still figuring it all out. Despite living apart, they both make it a priority to see each other and have visited one another since the wedding. Gerry has been to New Jersey multiple times, and Theresa’s planning a trip to Indiana next month.
