Actress Candace Cameron Bure was recently on the Breakdown podcast with Celebrity Jeopardy host Mayim Bialik. While talking to Bialik, Bure shared that she and her husband still love each other “physically,” “spiritually,” and “mentally” after 26 years of marriage.
Bure, who married former hockey player Valeri Bure in 1996, shared that laughter is one of her “love languages,” and she loves when her husband makes her laugh.
“Laughter is one of my love languages,” she told Bialik, who starred as Amy Farrah Fowler on the CBS sitcom Big Bang Theory.
“I grew up with comedians on the show [Full House]. I’ve been around laughter my whole life. My dad’s a very funny man,” she said. “Like, I love it. So, I need to have laughter in my life, and that does come with a playfulness with my husband, so when he can make me laugh – like, it’s the best.”
According to Fox News, the Full House star also noted that “sex within marriage gets such a bad rap” and stressed that sex within marriage is “to be celebrated” because it is a “gift from God.”
Sex is a “blessing of being married and committed to someone,” Bure said, adding that jokes about longer marriages being sexless are inaccurate in her case.
“I’m not trying to talk about my sex life,” she explained. “But I do think it is important to share what a healthy sex life within marriage can be just in saying like that that’s important.”
“It’s an important part of the relationship that we make time for one another, that we still love each other both physically, you know, spiritually, mentally, all of the things,” Bure continued. “It all comes hand in hand.”
“I’m a happier person, and my husband’s a happier person when we’ve had sex,” she said.
The Bures have three children together: Natasha, 24, Lev, 22 and Maksim, 20.
Bure, who starred in the hit 90s sitcom Full House and its 2016 sequel Fuller House, recently ended a 14-year-stint with Hallmark Channel and has now joined Great American Family. She is slated to star in her first Christmas film under the new network, which will be released in November.
