help newly tiled shower is wet behind tiles

Hi, Please bear with me as this is the first forum I have ever participated in.
My husband just finished tiling our shower about 3 weeks ago. He sealed the grout and caulked it. I noticed when I was showering that the grout would darken. It now turns out that moisture or water has gotten behind the tiles. We removed the caulk and discovered it was wet. We vapor sealed and used wonderboard. What I am wondering is how water got behind the tiles and whether or not it will dry out. It is completely tiled the only open area is the 1/4" inch of space from where the caulking was removed. We have not used it in approximately one week but it does not appear to drying out well.
