Warm fuzzies for these lovers on ice! Candace Cameron Bure shared a sweet throwback to her second date with husband Valeri Bure on Thursday, June 22, in honor of the couple’s 21st wedding anniversary.
“It all started here. He had me at first stride. Happy 21st anniversary my love ❤️ #FrederictonNB#MontrealCanadiens #2ndDate #1994,” the Full House alum captioned the precious photo, which shows the young couple embracing in an ice rink. (Valeri was previously a professional hockey player, but retired in 2005 after a series of hip injuries.)
Candace and Valeri married in 1996 and share three children: daughter Natasha and sons Maksim and Lev.
In 2014, the actress chatted with HuffPost Live about her book, Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose, and explained that part of what makes her marriage work is that she and her husband have clear-cut roles in their relationship. She writes in her book, “I am not a passive person, but I chose to fall into a more submissive role in our relationship because I wanted to do everything in my power to make my marriage and family work.”
Candace elaborated on HuffPost Live, “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.”
