Candace Cameron Bure recently said that she and her husband, Valeri Bure, faced a tough test from the coronavirus pandemic, and seemed to have passed.

What’s going on?

Candace Cameron Bure told Us Weekly magazine that her marriage was tested “in the best ways” from quarantine during the coronavirus pandemic.

  • “I’ll be honest because we try. We both travel so much,” she said. “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.”

She said she and her husband spent quality time together, which allowed them to look deeper at their 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 said. “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 — and 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.”

Celebrities have spoken about how quarantine has helped their marriage and home life since it required them to spend more time at home.

Kirsten Bell said she and her husband, Dax Shepard, faced a tough experience while home-schooling their children, as I wrote for the Deseret News.

  • “Of course, we’ve all come to know the two worst words in the human language: Home schooling. Doing school work with them, it is absolutely miserable. When we started this quarantine, the first math worksheet I gave my daughter, in all the answer lines she wrote, ‘No. No. No. No. No.’“
  • She added, “There are a few people that have come out victorious in this situation though. Germaphobes, stay-at-home moms, they’re all like, ‘I told you how (expletive) hard this is.’“

Drew Barrymore said homeschooling nearly brought her to tears during the pandemic, as I wrote about for the Deseret News.

  • She said: “I don’t know if there are good days and bad days. I think there are good hours and bad hours. I cried every day, all day long. It was like every church and state. It was the messiest plate I’ve ever held in my life to be the teacher, the parent, the disciplinarian, the caretaker.”
