No couple is perfect, and Shepard and Bell are the first to admit they've got to work on things.
Which is why his advice to an audience member was incredible.
The woman, Courtney, asked Shepard what she should do when her boyfriend gives her the silent treatment in fights.
Are you prepared for Shepard's answer? No, seriously, we'll give you a moment. Here's a cute pic of the couple in the meantime:
Shepard started his answer by asking Courtney if she was a mechanic, to which she replied…no.
To which he then replied, “If your transmission broke, would you and your boyfriend try to fix it — would you take it out in the driveway and try to fix it?”
Ummm, where is this all going, Dax?
Courtney then replied, “I would take it to the auto shop.”
Dax: “Right, because you care about your car. Are you a couples counselor, are you a therapist?”
Dax: “Do you care about your relationship?”
Okay, okay, we see where this is going…
How did Shepard tie it all together?
“Then you should show it the same respect you’d show your car. You should go to a therapist, have couples therapy. Kristen and I started right out of the gate. It’s a great way to prevent terrible patterns from starting as opposed to doing it way late and trying to unravel terrible patterns,” he said in the video.
Our minds are blown!
Dax, teach us your wise ways!
