As Joy Behar and her co-hosts giddily chat about the #1 benefit of divorce, once again, Candace Cameron Bure is the steadying voice of wisdom amidst The View‘s off-base banter.
Behar kicks off the “After The View” segment with a statistic that asserts 40% of men and women say the best part about divorce is new booty. When Bure was asked her thoughts on this, she quickly switched gears in saying, “I would like this survey to be about the best things when you’re in a long-term marriage.”
“I think sex is much better when you’re in a long-term relationship because there’s a trust factor,” she added.
“I don’t want to get so personal in that area, but it gets better each year because you trust more. You feel safe. And then, it’s good. It’s GOOD,” remarked Bure through smiles that clearly said she’s not about to divulge any more.
In a culture that glorifies instant gratification and as many sex partners as possible, I love watching public figures like Bure act as an advocate for marriage and purity.
And the best part is, she’s not just saying it to back what the Bible says, but also to share that her experience has proven it to be “better” than casual sex. So often, we tend to pit God’s best and our best against each other like He’s the big guy upstairs who doesn’t want us to have any fun.
But that couldn’t be further from the truth. When we merge His will with our free will, there’s a beautiful synergy that far surpasses our wildest dreams. Yes, sex is good, and God wants us to enjoy it within the parameters that He has set.
In a world of Playboys, porn, and one night stands, thanks, Bure, for being a role model for the only kind of “good sex” that needs to be put up on a pedestal.
