Kirk Cameron is at it again. The one-time TV heartthrob turned born-again Christian talked about what makes a successful marriage, and to him, it’s all about the ladies keeping quiet.
“Wives are to honor and respect and follow their husband’s lead, not to tell their husband how he ought to be a better husband,” he explains. “When each person gets their part right, regardless of how their spouse is treating them, there is hope for real change in their marriage.”
Cameron, whose shares six kids with wife Chelsea Noble, also touched on parenting and how important it is for a couple not to fight in front of their kids. “When couples start arguing and fighting in front of the kids, dad cuts mom and mom cuts dad and the kids bleed,” Cameron says. “They see that and it damages them. When the kids get to marriage, they will follow patterns that they see.”
For what it’s worth, the former “Growing Pains” actor has at least one person in his corner: his sister, Cameron Candace Bure. On “The View,” she said she agrees with not fighting in front of your kids. In her 2014 book, “Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose,” she writes about the biblical definition of being “submissive,” which means women being “meek” not “weak” when it comes to their marriage. “It is strength under control, it is bridled strength,” Bure explains. “And that’s what I choose to have in my marriage.”
