Candace Cameron Speaks on Christianity and Sex After Getting Married: ‘I’m Still Having Fun’

by Emily Morgan

Candace Cameron Bure is still defending herself and her Christianity after sharing a saucy photo with her husband.

In September, the “Fuller House” star shared the controversial photo. The two smile while her husband has his arm around her shoulder with his hand on her breast. While some fans acknowledge that the picture was playful, others disagree, saying it was inappropriate.

Candace Cameron Bure Defends Her Christianity

Bure defended herself when she went on the Christian podcast, ”Confessions Of A Crappy Christian Podcast.”

On the podcast, she spoke candidly with the hosts about the backlash she received from the Christian community.

“I’ve been married for 24 years. I’m a Christian, my husband’s a Christian and I’m really proud that we’ve managed to stay married for 24 years. And the fact that we have fun and we flirt together, this is part of what makes our marriage work,” Cameron Bure said. “This is something to be celebrated as a Christian.”

On Sept. 11, Bure published the photo on her personal Instagram, captioning the photo with, “Sweet and spicy… 24 years and counting,” adding a winking emoji.

Despite the attempted playful tone, her Christian fans were not afraid to tell the former child star that she should “be more modest.” Some even attacked Bure’s Christianity, telling her that it was “so inappropriate” for her to post it.

Defending Herself

“Sex is the blessing of marriage and I hate when Christians are like, no, you have to pretend like you’ve never had sex, and we only know that you’ve had sex three times because you’ve had three children,” she explained. “If we are to promise ourselves for one another and preach saving yourself for marriage, then sex needs to be celebrated within marriage.

Additionally, Bure opened up about struggling with her sexuality after marriage. Telling the hosts, she thought God would “think negatively” of her for having sex or “doing things or fooling around.” Bure also describes having to “adjust her brain” after getting married.

“It has taken years to work through it and then understand it and enjoy it and then embrace it,” she said. “Now I embrace it so much that my kids are like, ‘Mom, please stop talking about sex. Please stop.’
