"I never want to give the perception that our marriage is perfect. I don’t believe any marriage is perfect," she said. "But, I can say I’m happily married, and it’s because of communication, honesty." 

Mowry-Housley, who shares two children with her husband, noted that marriage can have its ups and downs, but it’s important to adjust to a partner’s personal growth. 

"In your 10th year of marriage you may have different needs than you did in your first, second or third, and it’s important to communicate that need," she revealed. "Adjust and learn and support and be there for your partner in those changes."

The 43-year-old continued: "Keep the romance alive" and "keep dating each other."

Mowry-Housley is currently co-hosting a new Hulu series, "Baker's Dozen," featuring passionate amateur bakers going head-to-head with seasoned professionals.
