While living separately and constantly being tempted, each must decide if they want to stay true to their significant other or find a new romance. Us Weekly was on set in Hawaii, just hours before the couples had to separate, and each pair revealed what boundaries they had discussed with their partner — and everyone’s rules were different.

“She’s got a whole list of boundaries. She said no massages and kissing,” Rick, 32, said of his girlfriend Ashley, 32. “I didn’t place any boundaries on her. I understand what Temptation Island is. We have to take on all that it has to offer. I didn’t want to place any boundaries on her. I want to see how she operates in those settings when I’m not around.”

Ashley, for her part, responded, “I’m going to behave!” However, when Rick added that he’s “technically single” now, she reminded him he does not have a “hall pass.”

As for the other couples, most of the boundaries were the same: nothing physical is allowed.

“I think it’s important not to try to control the situation too much,” Esonica, 30, told Us, revealing that no kissing or sex was allowed. Her boyfriend, Gavin, was on the same page … for the most part. “I agree with boundaries aside from the kissing aspect, because with kissing it’s not always in your control. I’d say no initiating a kiss,” the 26-year-old private security officer shared. “If someone leans in … no continuing the kiss.”
