Kirk Cameron Speaks On Marriage, Says Wives Should Follow ‘Husband’s Lead’
Kirk Cameron, the former Growing Pains star, has stirred up controversy, after an interview earlier this month revealed his conservative views on marriage.
Kirk Cameron Believes Wives Should Follow Husband’s Lead
“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,” Cameron said, during an interview with Christian Post. “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 is known to be an outspoken Christian and has been married to actress Chelsea Noble, since 1991. He is currently on a tour called “Love Worth Fighting For,” a Bible-based event intended to teach others how to strengthen their marriage.
“A lot of people don’t know that marriage comes with instructions,” Cameron added. “We find them right there in God’s word.”
Cameron’s younger sister, Full House star Candace Cameron Bure, also appears to share his views, after she discussed being submissive in her marriage to former NHL pro Valeri Bure.
“I love that my man is a leader,” Bure told HuffPo Live in 2014. “I want him to lead and be the head of the family and those decisions, major decisions, do fall on him. It doesn’t mean I don’t voice my opinion. It doesn’t mean I don’t have an opinion. I absolutely do.”
