From Woman’s Day

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, couples around the world have found themselves spending more time with each other than they ever have before. For some, the extra time together has been a blessing, like Candace Cameron Bure’s and her husband Valeri Bure, though it hasn’t been without its own set of struggles. The actress told Us Weekly she and her husband worked through their COVID-19 quarantine hardships and came out stronger than they were before.

“It totally tested us but in the best of ways,” Cameron Bure told the publication. “I’ll be honest because we try. We both travel so much. So we were like, ‘This might be the most amount of time we’ve actually spent together in years. This is either going to make us or break us.’ And you know what? It’s made us.”

The actress said she was incredibly thankful for the extra time she’s been able to spend with her husband since quarantine began because it’s helped her learn a lot about her relationship. “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? What are the things that are working well?'” she told the publication. “So, I’m thankful that it happened in that way because it’s made our relationship stronger.”

Not only has quarantine made Cameron Bure’s relationship with her husband stronger, but it’s also shown her that she wants to spend more time with her family than she did pre-pandemic. “I’m really grateful that it’s the one thing that I can look at 2020 — as crazy as this year has been and difficult,” she told the publication. “I’m so grateful for my family time because I’ve reevaluated my work schedule, the time that I’m away from my family, and realized that that was not a good balance for me.”

Cameron Bure, her husband, and their three children — Natasha, Lev, and Maksim — quarantined together at the start of the pandemic. At the time, she told Woman’s Day that she went from being an empty nester to having her entire family back together again in just a few short months. It was a blessing to have everyone together, she said, but it came with its fair share of struggles. When the COVID-19 pandemic slowed, Cameron Bure’s film projects started up again, and she spent two months in Canada, returning at the end of the summer to celebrate Lev’s engagement and being together again.

Although the pandemic tested Cameron Bure’s marriage and brought out some hardships in other aspects of her life, she and her family were able to come out of it stronger and more unified. And yours can, too.
