Over the weekend, Candace Cameron Bure's son, Lev Bure, proposed to his long-time love Taylor Hutchinson. What was a beautiful and special occasion has turned into a tiny scandal. While people were congratulating the 20-year-old on his upcoming nuptials, people were slamming him in the comments for being "too young." Some of them even scolded Candace Cameron Bure for allowing him to get engaged so young. It's all very silly.
Here are some of the comments I found on Instagram:
I'm going to assume the people shaming him are 40+ years old, never been married, and they have 12 cats.
Listen up, sourpussies! Ask your grandparents how old they were when they got married. Ask them how old THEIR parents were when they got married. A lot of people back in the day got married right out of high school, and stayed happily married for the rest of their lives.
Candace Cameron herself was married at 20 years old. She and Val have been happily married since 1996! She credits their 24 year marriage to faith in God.
It's no secret that Candace and Val have raised their 3 kids as Christians. They were raised in Church and they seem to have good heads on their shoulders. What makes me laugh is that the people flaming Lev Bure for getting engaged are also mocking his faith, and saying he's only getting engaged so he can have sex. Now, if he were to have sex outside of marriage, people would question how strong his faith is, AND they would slam his parents.
I feel bad for Lev and his family right now. No matter what, they are going to get dragged in the comments. I meant what I said in my previous post regarding his engagement: I'm happy for both the Bure and Hutchinson families.
I will admit, I feel a little old when I think about Candace Cameron Bure becoming a grandmother someday. Candace, we ain't ready, gurl! LOL!
