There are plenty of tips those in long marriages can offer, from good communication to keeping the romance alive, and the actress' latest, though unexpected, is something she whole-heartedly swears by.

Speaking with Kelly Clarkson on The Kelly Clarkson Show as she continues to promote her new hit Netflix series, Wednesday, she revealed the set-up she has in her home with the fellow actor that she considers of utmost importance.

It was Kelly who first called out Catherine on the tip, saying: "You're big on saying marriage is… it only goes well when you have two bathrooms. Right? You have your own bathroom"

The mother-of-two quickly confirmed her belief with an excited smile, responding: "Yeah," to which the host replied: "I second this."

Kelly cheekily added: "Because, I don't know what it is about dudes… Why is there hair everywhere?" to which the No Reservations lead added: "Yeah, toothpaste, tops off..."

The actress had support both from Kelly and viewers of the show

Then Catherine further explained: "But you know what, it doesn't have to be about – it's a bit grandiose, 'Oh we need our own bathrooms,' it's just, I'm all for man caves, girl caves. Go and party with the hot rods in the garage, go plant a few herbs in the garden."

Making a case for time apart and boundaries in relationships, she added: "Because… you spend any amount of time with anybody at work, you need a little space."

Catherine has quite the luxurious bathroom she gets to enjoy just for herself 

"For me, the bathroom is more of a sanctuary," she confessed, detailing that: "It's not just brushing my teeth and brushing my hair. It's the candles, it's the bath, it's the creams, it's the lotions, you know. And I feel much happier when I come out there without any intrusions."

Fans were quick to get on board, taking to the comments section under the clip from the episode posted to social media and writing: "I will have my own bathroom when I get married," and: "1000% as a couples/relationship therapist, I suggest 2 bathrooms, 2 beds… it can save your relationship," as well as: "IT'S SO WORTH IT!"
