In an Instagram Story, Bristowe shared her disappointment for the couple, who cited their cross-country living situation as the primary reason for their split. Gerry, 72, and Theresa, 70, explained that despite still loving each other, they felt it was best for their individual happiness to dissolve their marriage due to their separate living circumstances.

Following the announcement of the divorce, Turner filed to dissolve their marriage in Petersburg, Indiana, citing the “irretrievable breakdown” of their marriage as the reason for their split.
