The couple had their first date in 1967. Turner describer their relationship saying, “We hadn’t even grown up yet, so we were looking forward to growing up together, raising children together and those kinds of things.”

Now, Gerry is going on very different first dates. He explains, “Now, it’s changed entirely. It’s two retired people trying to find what they want to do with the rest of their life for fun, because we look at it now as like every day is Saturday.”

Turner continues, “We can do whatever we want, so what is it we actually want to do? And it’s fun, but it is a lot different.”

Gerry excitedly comments on the dates from the Bachelor Mansion, “I mean, this is really fairytale stuff and I lived it, so it’s pretty amazing.”
