Candace Cameron Bure Shares Secret to 22-Year Marriage: “It’s Not About Winning or Losing”


Ever since her days on “Full House,” Candace Cameron Bure has been one of TV’s favorite, down-to-earth actresses. Today, we love watching her find love in our favorite Hallmark movies— but as it turns out, her real-life love story is as sweet as could be.

Candace Cameron Bure and her husband, Valeri Bure, have been married for 22 years and have three kids together: Natasha (19), Lev (18) and Maksim (16). In an interview with People, Candace shared that the secret to being together for 22 years isn’t a secret formula, but their faith in Christ.

“The reality is the glue for us is Jesus,” she said. “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.”

She shared that she and Valeri make their kids a priority in their lives and make sure they feel comfortable telling them hard things. “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,” she said. “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.”
