t was an uphill battle for newlywed “Golden Bachelor” couple Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist to stay married. When you are settled into an area and have family around, it’s hard to pull up stakes and move, even for love. That’s what happened to Turner and Nist. On “Good Morning America” this morning, Turner explained “Theresa and I have had a number of heart-to-heart conversations, and we’ve looked closely at our situation, our living situation, so forth and — and we’ve kind of come to the conclusion mutually that it’s probably time for us to — dissolve our marriage.” Nist added “We have received so much love and support from so many people who watched ‘The Golden Bachelor,’ and I don’t think we can tell you how many people told us that it gave them so much hope. We want none of that to change for anybody.”
