Despite what many term her “video vixen” image, Jumping the Broom and Think Like a Man actress, Meagan Good has always been outspoken about her deep faith. She credits her faith with helping her maintain balance, energizing her, and keeping her purposeful.
The Jumping the Broom actress had a real-life Jumping the Broom moment of her own several months earlier as told to Global Grind, “”I was crying about so much at the time that God told me exactly what it was going to be and [H]e told me that the next relationship that I got into was going to be “the” relationship. God told me specifically what the criteria was with the man I was going to marry and [H]e told me to not settle…Then shortly after that I became celibate. I said, ‘Alright Lord, let’s see what you have for me.’ Oddly enough, Devon and I had known each other for six years and Jumping The Broom wrapped nine moments before we even dated. During a couple of those months before, it started getting in my spirit that he was going to be my husband and he didn’t even know.” Thankfully, Good did not settle and she’s now engaged to a man, Sony Executive & occasional preacher, DeVon Franklin, whose faith rivals her own.
Recently, Meagan told Life & Style that she knew DeVon was the one for her when he showed that he was willing to wait with her. So, she shared that their wedding night will be their first night together. Good also stated that their wedding will be in Malibu and will likely be “bayou-themed kind of Spanish mosque” wedding with a “very enchanted-y Twilight feel.”
Interestingly, Good’s statement about waiting has been met with some backlash. Some have stated that she is sharing too many personal details and that intimacy or the lack thereof should be a private matter between the two people involved. However, it is my personal view that this is very refreshing. In an oversexed, sex-saturated media environment, I think it is wonderful to read about people in the public eye showing that waiting for intimacy is a great choice.
