Meagan Good shared how she and her husband took the unconventional way to their relationship.
In our world today sex is almost always on the table long before true love or marriage, but not for Meagan Good. This remarkable couple, actress Meagan Good and executive producer DeVon Franklin chose traditional views and did not pick the honey before the honeymoon. The loving couple said it was definitely worth the wait and the sacrifices they made were the right choices. Both Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin have a new book out called, The Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and The Life You Love. Wow, this sounds like a movie in the making.
Meagan Good and Devon were brought together when they were filming Jumping the Broom in 2011. The strong couple had a thirteen-month courtship before getting married in 2012. Meagan, the Think Like a Man actress had a prior reputation as a party girl while Devon was a part-time preacher. Devon had been celibate for 10 years prior. They both had to deal with times of frustration and angst as they dealt with relationship baggage and insecurities plus not having sex. It was very challenging for both of them. Devon said, “I mean, it’s Meagan Good!”
The couple credits God for their strength and perseverance. Meagan and Devon have now been married for three years. In their book they discuss the foundation of matrimony and address the questions about couple’s relationship hesitations in the chapters, “If I Don’t Sleep with Him, I’ll Lose Him” to “The Problem with Sex.”
Devon shared, “I think so much came out of practicing “The Wait” and having the time to get to know each other and see things clearly, and not allowing sexual attraction to cloud the vision and also cloud our judgment. I think that in dating, your judgment is one of the things that will serve you the best if you do everything to preserve it. In our dating situation, having judgment and being able to see her and her being able to see me gave us both the confirmation and the confidence that we were meant for each other.”
