Candace Cameron’s “Submissive” Marriage Makes Us Gag

If you think an equal partnership is the secret to a successful marriage, you’re sadly mistaken. Candace Cameron, who has always held a special place in our hearts as Full House’s D.J. Tanner, has spoken out about her approach to matrimony and we’re bewildered by her outlook, to say the least.

According to the oldest Tanner sister in her new marital success guide, Reshaping It All, being “submissive” is the way to go if you want to sustain a healthy relationship.

“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,” she writes in the passage.

But don’t worry, she elaborated on this statement on HuffPo Live segment yesterday and totally redeemed herself, except that she didn’t at all.

“The definition I’m using with the word “submissive” is the biblical definition of that,” she said. “So, it is meekness, it is not weakness. It is strength under control, it is bridled strength.”

Her choice to be yielding means that her husband can bare all the responsibility of making choices for their family while she nods and says yes (we presume).

“I love that my man is a leader,” she explained in the book. “I want him to lead and those major decisions to fall on him.”

Gag…. And we’re going to go ahead and assume that Cameron’s old co-stars Mary-Kate and Ashley, who’ve managed to build an $100 million empire all by their lonesome, would echo this sentiment.
