Candace Cameron Bure and former NHL hockey player Valeri Bure are celebrating 22 years of marriage this year, and we couldn’t be happier for this sweet couple who sets a prime example of unwavering commitment to both God and each other.
With a skyrocketing divorce rate for the average American, a Hollywood marriage exceeding two decades practically sounds like an eternity.
But after officially being together for more of their lives than they’ve been apart, 41-year-old Candace and 43-year-old Valeri are all too aware that marriage is not something that comes easy. It’s something you fight for. HARD. Daily.
It’s a lifelong commitment that you choose over and over, through thick and thin. Whether it be the little things like dirty socks and toast crumbs on the floor or the big things like lost jobs and miscarriages — every marriage has its valleys. But it’s how you fight through them and Who you turn to in trouble that counts.
For Candace, that answer is quite simple: Jesus.
