These Celebrities Have Hella Traditional Views About Marriage

Prepare to read the word "serve" a lot.

In an era of nationally-legalized gay marriage and feminism–praise!–it’s quite jarring to hear matrimony views from people who aren’t as progressive. And, believe it or not, those opinions aren’t just from people in the Bible belt. Several A-listers live by traditional marriage ideals, which in most cases means “submitting” to the husband. Whatever that means. The concept is a little confusing to us, but who are we to judge? Read these nine celebrities’ rather, erm, out-there opinions, and dish your own marriage philosophies in the comments.

    The Growing Pains actor and devout Evangelical Christian is currently in hot water for voicing his rather backwards views on marriage. “Wives are to honor and respect and follow their husband’s lead, not to tell their husband how he ought to be a better husband,” Cameron said to The Christian Post. He also added that positive change can happen in a marriage if the husband and wife get their “part(s)” right. SMDH.

    In an October 2015 blog post, this 19 Kids and Counting star advised newlywed women to be “joyfully available” for sex with their husbands whenever, wherever–even if they’re tired and not in the mood. Um, how about no?

  • 3 Manny Pacquiao

    The former boxer voiced his opposition to gay marriage in February 2016. That’s frustrating enough, but he kicked it up a notch when he said gay people are worse than animals. This guy needs to sit down.

    The famous volleyball star gave some controversial advice in her book My Foot Is Too Big For The Glass Slipper. Reece writes that the reason her marriage to pro-surfer Laird Hamilton works is because they adopted traditional gender roles. “…to truly be feminine means being soft, receptive, and –- look out, here it comes –- submissive,” she said.

    Austin is a huge fan of being subservient to her man Ice-T. “I think all women should [submit to their husbands],” she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. “I’m a slave to him.” However, Ice-T chimed in and said, “By her choice…She likes that. She’s into that.”

  • 6 Miranda Kerr

    In 2013, Kerr told Net-A-Porter that she tries not to be an alpha female in relationships, but instead makes the man “feel like the man.” She continued, “Maybe I am too traditional, but men feel important when you ask for their help.”

  • 7 Candace Cameron

    The Full House actress thinks there can only be one head of the household, and that’s the man in hers. “I am not a passive person, but I chose to fall into a more submissive role in our relationship because I wanted to do everything in my power to make my marriage and family work,” she wrote in her book Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose.

  • 8 Kirsten Dunst

    In an interview with the UK Harper’s Bazaar, Dunst said relationships work when a man is a “man” and a woman is a “woman.” She also noted, “…sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor.”

  • 9 Kaley Cuoco

    Cuoco caught flack in 2014 when she told Redbook she wasn’t a feminist and that she enjoyed “coming home and serving [her then-husband Ryan Sweeting].” Enough with the serving, people!
