Theresa Nist was spotted for the first time since her divorce from Gerry Turner was finalized in a reworn dress from the Golden Bachelor.

Golden Bachelor Marriage Officially Over

Theresa Nist had one great love in her lifetime until her husband died in 2014 after over 40 years of marriage. Gerry Turner went through a similar situation when his wife, Toni, passed away in 2017.

Gerry and Theresa sought a second chance at love on the first-ever season of The Golden Bachelor. They thought they’d found it in each other and quickly made their way to the altar in a televised special two months after their engagement aired on the season finale.

But perhaps they rushed too quickly into marriage. Just three months after their wedding, Gerry Turner filed for divorce. It seems they weren’t on the same page about where to live and neither wanted to move away from their families.

According to multiple outlets, the divorce was just as quick as the wedding and engagement. The paperwork as reportedly been finalized.
