Candace Cameron Bure wants to have a healthy relationship with her three kids. She thinks it’s important to talk about intimacy. The Fuller House star already had the talk with them when they were old enough. But she keeps that conversation going.
In fact, she makes sure to talk about intimacy with them on an everyday basis. Candace thinks too many married couples should be talking about intimacy with their children. And she also believes they’re not having enough alone time together. The 44-year-old recently made headlines when she posted a photo of her husband, Val Bure, grabbing her breast.
Candace Cameron Bure defends her controversial Instagram post
The Hallmark Channel actress made an appearance on the podcast Confessions of a Crappy Christian. On there, Candace Cameron Bure defended the photo she posted on Instagram. She thinks that it’s appropriate since Val is her husband. The Full House alum wants to make a point to discuss marriage and intimacy with her kids.
Candace thinks her photo of her husband grabbing her breast was tame. But some of her followers are conservative Christians who reacted negatively to it. As for Candace, she was shocked by the reaction. Two months after the scandal, she revealed that she’s teaching her three children to respect and honor intimacy.
She thinks physical intimacy should be celebrated more, especially among Christians. The former child actress doesn’t think it should end once couples say “I do.” Candace feels that intimacy is an important part of a marriage. She even makes it an ongoing conversation with her children.
The Queen of Christmas jokes that she probably “annoys my kids” because she brings it up so much. She admits that she had the talk with them for most of their lives. It’s important for her kids to know that intimacy is normal and healthy. But only once they’re married, of course.
She doesn’t care what people think of her
Candace Cameron Bure doesn’t have time for the critics. She previously defended her frisky photo on Instagram Stories.
“For all of the Christians that are questioning my post with my husband’s hand on my boob – my husband of 24 years – thinking it was inappropriate, it makes me laugh because it’s my husband,” Candace explained. “We have so much fun together. He can touch me anytime he wants, and I hope he does. That is what a healthy, good marriage and relationship is all about.”
However, not everyone was upset over Candace’s photo. Some of them even loved that she displayed a healthy relationship. Others think she defied stereotypes over how a Christian marriage should look.
“I love the fact that so many people had an opinion on it. It made me laugh because I wasn’t trying to make a statement,” Candace previously told Fox News. “This is just how my husband and I are. You know, we adore each other and we still have fun and we’re spicy together.”
Candace and Val have a daughter, Natasha Bure, and two sons, Lev and Maskim Bure. She plans to posts more spicy photos in the near future. And her kids can expect her to talk about her intimate life. According to Candace, it’s just a healthy expression of love.
