Anyone that’s married, or has been married will tell you that it’s no walk in the park. It gets even harder when Hollywood wants to keep Jesus out of everything and keep people from talking about Him.
Just like anything in life, if you want it to grow, it takes nurturing and constant hard work. For people in the entertainment industry, it’s even a tougher time keeping a relationship headed in the right direction.
That’s why Candace Cameron Bure’s marriage is so astounding. Candace is of course DJ from Full House, and now Fuller House, and she’s been successfully married for twenty two years. You might be wondering, How does this happen?
Celebrities are regular people, whose lives are far more public than ours. They need the rest and relaxation just like us. Candace told PEOPLE magazine about a recent get away she and her husband took.
“I just came back from Switzerland two days ago with my husband,”
“We had a little five-day vacation, so that was wonderful. We do like to travel and get away from everything here at home in L.A., and from our kids, as much as we love them. We want alone time, you know what I mean? And our kids are older too.”
One on one time is key. Then Bure gets down to what really holds it altogether.
“The reality is the glue for us is Jesus,”
In the face of a society that’s trending more and more secular, the Bure’s are doubling down on their faith and finding the security and grounding that we all need.
“It’s the Bible. You know, when there are arguments or we’re compromising and in ways, it’s always like, ‘Well, let’s just go back to the Bible.’ It’s the foundation for us. So it’s not about winning or losing. But doing this journey together.”
Their faith informs every aspect of their lives, including the way they parent their children. Bure shares,
“It’s so important to engage with your kids constantly. I talk with them nonstop from really kind of intense and deep conversations to the fluffy stuff and the day-to-day,”
“But it’s important to let them know that you’re there for them no matter what. As a mom, I’m always going to have an opinion, but not in a judgmental way, if that makes sense. I’m going to give my best advice as a mother, or my husband as a father. But we want to be open enough that they don’t feel scared to be able to talk to us.”
This interview is so good!
The Bure’s show that you don’t have to lose your mind and your life just because you work in Hollywood!
