The Bachelor's Gerry Turner and Theresa Nest are divorcing

Bachelor couple Gerry Turner and Theresa Nestor are divorcing. The two announced their split in an interview on "Good Morning America" ​​on April 12, just months after their golden wedding.

Gerry and Teresa met on the first season of "The Bachelor ," the latest spinoff of the "Bachelor" series in which older adults embark on a search for love. The couple got engaged on the show's November 2023 finale and married in a televised ceremony on January 4.

During their "Good Morning America" ​​sit-down together, Gerry revealed that he and Teresa had "a lot of heart-to-heart conversations" before deciding to go their separate ways. "We carefully looked at our situation, our living situation and so on, and together we came to the conclusion that it might be time for us to dissolve our marriage," he said.

The couple confirmed in an interview with host Juju Chang that finding a forever home was the main reason for their decision to split. “We looked at houses in South Carolina, we looked at houses in New Jersey, and we just looked at house after house after house,” Theresa said. "But we never got to the point of making that decision."

"The thing that struck me most during our conversation was how dedicated both of us are to our families," Gerry said in the GMA interview. "We looked at the circumstances and I think we felt that living apart was best for each of our happiness."

The pair also clarified that Gerry's past dating, which he described as a "failure" in November 2023, had nothing to do with their divorce. "Gerry has discussed this with me," Theresa said. "He explained that to me before the report came out, so we're comfortable with that."

Gerry and Theresa are still 'in love'

Despite announcing their divorce, the Bachelor couple still have a lot of respect for each other. "I still love the guy," Turner told "Good Morning America." "There's no doubt that I still love her. I support her every day."

Host Zhang then asked them if they would return their wedding rings. "I think that's the rule," Theresa joked, and Gerry added, "You know what? We don't have to give the memory back."
