Candace Cameron Bure Defends Her ‘submissive role' inMmarriage: 'I love that my man is a leader'

by Rachel Maresca)

Candace Cameron Bure has spoken out about where she stands in her marriage.

The former "Full House" actress wrote in her new book, "Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose," that she chooses to fall "into a more submissive role" in her relationship with husband of 17 years, NHL player Valeri Bure.

The '90s star explained what she meant by that during an appearance on HuffPost Live on Monday.

"The definition I'm using with the word 'submissive' is the biblical definition of that. So, it is meekness, it is not weakness. It is strength under control, it is bridled strength," she said.

"I love that my man is a leader," she continued about Bure.

"I want him to lead and those major decisions to fall on him. It doesn't mean I don't voice my opinion, that I don't have an opinion, I absolutely do," she added.

The couple share three children together and Cameron went on to say that "it's is very difficult to have two heads of authority."

"It doesn't work in military … we have one President … and when you are competing with two heads of power that can pose a lot of problems or issues."

While Cameron, 37, is all grown up, fans remember her as D.J. Tanner in the hit series "Full House," co-starring alongside Bob Saget, John Stamos, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
