COMMITTED PARTNERS FOR MORE THAN 25 YEARS

On their 24th marriage anniversary, Candace wrote: "There really is something special about growing old together. I love you, even more, today than I did on our wedding day simply because I KNOW you, 24 years in the making."

The couple has three children together: daughter Natasha, 24, and sons Lev, 22, and Maksim, 21. Candace mentioned that she is an overprotective mother who also cannot wait to be the best mother-in-law in town and an awesome grandmother when her children decide to have their own families.

She further added that her youngest children didn't have social media accounts and would not have them for a few years while they grow up. Cellphones also remained off the table for the children, who begged for one almost every day, but Candace wasn't convinced to get cellphones for her kids.

She said that her kids would probably call her strict, saying, "I think I am a fun mom, but I am not trying to be their friend. I don't confuse that. I enjoy playing with my kids." Candace credited her husband for being supportive of her and the children, highlighting how fortunate she was.

Her firstborn, Natasha, has been following in her mother's footsteps by starring in commercials and modeling. Candace's middle child, Lev, recently became a preacher at a church in Los Angeles. The lastborn, Maksim, isn't in the spotlight as much as his siblings and has a dream to be in the NHL like his dad.

CHEEKY INSTAGRAM PHOTO CAUSES CONTROVERSY

When Candace posted a photo of her husband posing with his hand resting firmly on her breast, many of her Christian followers criticized the photo for being inappropriate. After deleting the post, Candace posted a series of videos saying that it was laughable that she had to explain herself.

She added that her husband could touch her anytime he wants, and the photo was a representation of a healthy marriage. She noted that the majority of her followers didn't find the post offensive, and she was not sorry for posting it. She added that her husband approved the photo.

Candace reflected on her decades-long marriage and said, "we have a playful, loving marriage, and I think that's why we're still married 24 years later." She added that playfulness doesn't stop once people get married, and that intimacy was not lacking in her marriage at all.

Candace explained that she would never write a book giving out marriage advice as she and her husband continued to learn new things every year.

She mentioned that communication, sex, laughter, and patience were some of the most important things in a successful marriage. She also added that God was the secret sauce in a successful marriage.
