Full House actress Candace Cameron Bure and NHL player Valeri Bure have been married since 1996. That’s over two decades spent in holy matrimony. What’s more, on the surface their marriage seems absolutely idyllic, with no affairs, no fights or temporary splits. In fact, no crises of any kind.
Still, is anyone’s marriage like that, really? Picture-perfect flawless? Well, looking through interviews that Cameron Bure has conducted over the years, it seems that there’s more going on in the relationship than you might think – and some of it’s rather controversial, too.
Back when she was just Candace Cameron, Bure was cast as D. J. Tanner in the show Full House. And while she was just 11 years old at the time, she nevertheless had the background to help her move easily into the celebrity world. Her mother was a talent agent, for one, while her brother Kirk was also a child actor. In fact, while playing Mike Seaver on the TV show Growing Pains, he became a bona fide teen idol.
Bure subsequently grew up on the set of Full House, while occasionally branching out into other film and TV work. She even appeared in two episodes of Growing Pains alongside her brother. Meanwhile, in 1995, and while still appearing on Full House, she attended a charity hockey game to see her co-star Dave Coulier play. He would go on to introduce her to Russian hockey player Valeri Bure, the man who would become her husband. What’s more, as luck would have it, Bure was a big Full House fan!
