Gerry said that they have chosen to “dissolve” their marriage at this time, citing their living situation as the reason why. While Theresa and Gerry both said that they are still in love, they don’t think staying in a committed relationship makes sense for them right now.

The Golden Bachelor is still residing at his lake house in Indiana. His estranged wife is living in New Jersey. Previously, the couple spoke about moving to Charleston, South Carolina. However, they were never able to come to an agreement on where they should move.

“The thing that strikes me the most in our conversations, it’s been how dedicated both of us are to our families,” Gerry Turner further explained. “So we look at these conversations and we both think it’s best for the happiness of each of us to live apart.”

A source close to Gerry and Theresa told People “It was never going to work.” The main reason for this was that “they never lived together,” the insider said.

“Things have been tough for months,” they added. “They’ve been fighting since right after the wedding.”
