Gerry Turner, Theresa Nist’s Families Never Really Came Together?

Gerry Turner felt so strongly about Theresa Nist on The Golden Bachelor that he went to her hometown to meet her daughter Jen and extended family. In turn, Theresa met his daughters in Costa Rica shortly before he made his final decision.

He chose to propose to Theresa Nist and they planned their wedding, which aired live on ABC in January. But newlywed bliss didn’t last long. The Golden Bachelor couple announced their divorce just three months later. But was there a subtle sign that fans may have missed?

The blended family never blended much over the holidays. Theresa Nist and Gerry Turner spent both Thanksgiving and Christmas apart with their respective families in New Jersey and Indiana. The families did, however, come together days before the divorce announcement to tape an upcoming episode of Family Feud. It’s unclear if the episode will be scrapped amid the split.

Bachelor Nation Fans React

Theresa Nist’s daughter has amassed a lot of social media followers since appearing on the ABC show. The Bachelor Nation fans took to the comments with a mix of supportive and skeptical comments:

  • i just don’t understand why this stuff about where to live wasn’t discussed before???? all the money just wasted on live tv!!
  • I can’t believe it’s over already. I was really rooting for them. What possibly could’ve been so wrong in just a few months?
  • Two lovely families and a couple with the best intentions ( IMO) who got caught up in the excitement and rushed a wedding pushed on them by the franchise. Then reality hits .
  • I’m sorry but they were married the contracted time you discuss big things before you get married and you definitely live in the same state
  • Pure class and grace. This has to be tough for your entire family.

Jen Woolston’s post about Gerry Turner was praised multiple times. Does it surprise you that she only had nice things to say about her mom’s soon-to-be ex-husband? Sound off in the comments.
