1. They were introduced in 1994 by Dave Coulier, aka Uncle Joey, from *Full House*.

"We were looking at these two cute men on the ice [at a charity hockey game] and I was like 'I wanna meet that one, the blonde one,' which was Val," she told Us Weekly.

2. Val is from Russia.

Get this: These two had a connection even before they met.

After Val moved from Moscow, Russia, to play hockey professionally with the Montreal Canadiens, he would watch Full House as a way to learn English.

3. They've been married for 24 years.

When it's right, it's right.

They've had quite the whirlwind relationship as they got engaged within a year of first meeting each other and then went on to get married on June 22, 1996.

4. Jesus is the glue to their relationship.

As devout Christians, they rely on their faith to guide their marriage.

"It’s the Bible. You know, when there are arguments or we’re compromising, it’s always like, ‘Well, let’s just go back to the Bible,'" Candace told People in 2018.

5. Quarantine really tested their marriage.

Like many couples, being stuck inside 24/7 during the coronavirus pandemic led to many battles.

“It totally tested us but in the best of ways,” the actress told Us Weekly. But thankfully, they came out stronger because of it.

“So many things are put in perspective just being at home, and then you talk through a lot of things and you realize, ‘What are the things we have to work on?" Candace said.

It also caused her to reevaluate her work schedule as she loved family time so much.

Most of the star's acting these days is on the Hallmark Channel.

6. They have three kids.

Children were always in the cards for these two. They had their eldest child, a daughter named Natasha, when Candace was only 22.

Two years after this came a son, Lev, and then another son, Maksim.

7. They're not afraid to get frisky when the kids are home.

This may sound weird to some, but hey, whatever works for them! “We just make sure our kids can’t pick the lock on our bedroom door!” she told Us Weekly.

Would you be comfortable pulling that off?

8. They've got the secret to a happy marriage down pat.

This is “love, respect, communication and keeping a healthy and active interest in your spouse’s passions,” Cameron told Us Weekly.

She added that you want to grow and evolve together.

9. They own their own wine label.

The pair have owned and operated Bure Family Wines since 2006.

They fell in love with wine-making after visiting Napa Valley. "We couldn't believe this place exists," her husband told Wine Spectator.

10. Their marriage has been openly criticized.

That's because Candace shared that she takes a "submissive" approach to marriage in her 2014 book, Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose.

This includes leaning on Val to make most of the family's big decisions.

"I quickly learned that I had to find a way of honoring his take-charge personality and not get frustrated about his desire to have the final decision on just about everything," she wrote.

She continued:

"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."

11. Their daughter, Natasha, was on *The Voice*

Talent runs in their family!

While she didn't make it too far, she did have the opportunity to be picked by Adam Levine to be on his team. Candace's reaction to the whole thing was straight-up adorbz.

12. They faced a lot of backlash from their Christian followers over a "cupping" photo.

As you can see in this photo, Val has his hand cupping the actress' breast on Instagram.

Soon, Christian followers deemed it "inappropriate."

“'Oh that’s so inappropriate that you posted that as a Christian. You should be more modest,’” Candace said on the *Confessions of a Crappy Christian* podcast.

She went on to say that being flirty is part of what makes their marriage work. "This is something to be celebrated as a Christian.”

13. Later, she even called out the naysayers on her Instagram.

"For all of the Christians that are questioning my post with my husband’s hand on my boob — my husband of 24 years — thinking it was inappropriate, it makes me laugh because it’s my husband. We have so much fun together,” she said at the time.

14. They believe that sex is a "blessing" in their marriage.

These two sure aren't afraid to share intimate details of their relationship.

While on the Confessions of a Crappy Christian podcast, she criticized those who believe that because you're Christian, you should only have sex to make children.

15. She doesn't care what people think of her "controversial" marriage.

When she caught flak for promoting a submissive marriage in her book, Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose, she realized that she can't please everyone.

“It hasn’t changed me or my marriage views,” she told *Us Weekly* about handling the backlash.

“Not everyone has to agree with it, and I wouldn’t change what works for us to please others," she said.
