Candace Cameron Bure Clears Up ‘Submissive’ Marriage Stance

Candace Cameron Bure is mostly known for her Full House role, and for being Kirk Cameron’s younger sister. Then Candace joined Dancing with the Stars for their current season, and her conservative views on everything from her outfits on the show to her devotion to her faith has grabbed headlines.

The last headline to come out about Candace Cameron Bure is from her promotion for Dancing with the Stars, when she tried to clear up misconstrued views from her book Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose. In her book she explains that she had taken on a “submissive” role in her marriage with her husband Valeri Bure. Since then, she’s had to explain what she meant as some people think that Cameron-Bure is putting women in a corner, as well as being anti-feminist.

Candace went on The View today to promote her run on Dancing with the Stars and the conversation turned into a gossipy angle. Bure once again defended her book and her “submissive” role in her marriage by saying:

“I think that a lot of people don’t understand the biblical term submissive,” she said. “My husband and I are very unified but he’s called to love me and I’m called to submit to his leadership.”

The Full House star said that it doesn’t mean her husband bosses her around the house. Bure said that there is a unifying force in their marriage, explaining, “If my husband makes a decision that’s ultimately not a great decision,” then he listens to her suggestion, “because I’m not complaining.”

This isn’t the first time she explained her stance on her marriage. During an interview with HLN, the former actress explained:

“In the biblical sense, submitting to my husband just means allowing my husband to lead his family because he loves our family and [is] making the best decisions for our family that he can.”

She also dived into the issue that has popped up over her stance on the scantily clad outfits on Dancing with the Stars. Candace Cameron-Bure spoke out against the outfits and was featured on the show consulting the show’s wardrobe people to see how she could honor her faith and wear outfits that are tasteful and are more on the conservative side.

“My goal is not to be the sexy girl even though I can wear those things, I have the body to wear them. Sexy-classy, that’s my thing.”

Candace Cameron-Bure can currently be seen dancing on the ABC show Dancing with the Stars.
