The couple were both served an ultimatum by their therapist earlier in their relationship. Vanessa revealed that a couple's trip to the therapist led to them halting their phone peeping ways and changing their relationship for the better.

The therapist apparently told the duo that it wasn't meant to be if trust wasn't a part of their relationship. Vanessa said, "I remember we went to a therapist, and she was like, 'If y'all are going through each other's phones, then you shouldn't be together.'"

The "NCIS: Hawaii" actress revealed that the advice was one she fully agreed with. "I was like, 'You're right,'" Vanessa said. "I need to trust this man, and he needs to trust me."
