Prominent Christian actor and former child television star Kirk Cameron asserted Wednesday that the Bible’s guidelines for marriage instruct wives to honor and “follow their husband’s lead.”

Cameron, who travels to churches across the United States to teach married couples about the importance of having a God-centered marriage and the importance of fighting to keep their marriages alive, spoke with The Christian Post on his participation in the “Love Worth Fighting For” national marriage tour.

Cameron, who is most known for his role in the 80’s sitcom “Growing Pains,” has visited nearly 200 churches across the U.S. in the seven years of the tour’s existence, was asked to explain God’s guidelines for marriage.

“A lot of people don’t know that marriage comes with instructions,” Cameron explained. “And, we find them right there in God’s word.”

Cameron stated that husband’s are “to love their wives and not to tell their wives that they need to submit to them,” but added that wives should not only respect their husbands but also follow their lead.

“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 explained. “When each person gets their part right, regardless of how their spouse is treating them, there is hope for real change in their marriage.”

Although he didn’t cite it in the interview, Cameron may have been referring to the words from Colossians 3:18-19, which states: “Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.”
