Meagan Good and her newlywed husband, preacher DeVon Franklin are teaming up to write a book about relationships.
The book, tentatively titled “The Wait,” is set to be released in early 2014 and is said to focus on Meagan and DeVon’s Christian faith and on practicing abstinence until they got married. In the past, the couple was both scrutinized and praised for their decision, but they’ve made it clear that they’re very happy with their decision. Meagan has said that she knew DeVon was the one for her so to remain celibate was something that she felt was meant to be.
[We dated] 10 months before we got married. It was one of those things where I knew he was my husband nine months before he even asked me on a date. So I had prayed on it and I had got confirmation and God was dealing with me on some issues that I had that I needed to work through and so when we got together, I knew and I just was waiting for it. When I told [my big sister in the business] Tasha Smith, ‘DeVon is my husband,’ She was like, ‘You know he’s celibate right. Like for real celibate’. I said, ‘I am too’ [but] It was only a couple of months. I was getting myself together.”
And for DeVon, he’s said that he did not have sex for 10 years before he married Meagan.
She was celibate before we got together and I was celibate. Let me just put it this way, [I've been celibate] over ten years. Part of what I also do is preach and the thing that I couldn’t do, which was eating me apart…What was happening with me is that I would go and preach one thing but I was going and living another and I could not do it. I could not look at myself in the mirror. I was like, ‘No, I cannot live like this,’ so I had to stop and say, ‘You know what, until I get married, that’s off the table.”
These two really do seem like a perfect fit for one another.
Do you think you’ll pick up their book?
