Contrary to what you may see in movies and on TV … Meagan Good is a “good” girl.
Years ago, after several failed relationships, Meagan Good — who is known for her sexy vixen-like acting roles — vowed to herself that she wouldn’t have sex again until she was married, and apparently she kept her promise.
The 30-year-old actress reveals in a recent interview with Life & Style Magazine that she and her preacher man fiancee DeVon Franklin have remained celibate for the past year, and their wedding night will be the first time they have sex.
“Our wedding night will be the first time we’re actually together.”
Meagan and DeVon, a Seventh Day Adventist preacher, started dating shortly after running into each other on the set of “Jumping the Broom,” where DeVon was working his day job as a Sony film executive. She says they had known each other for six years before that.
The future Mrs. Franklin said that when they started dating, she knew DeVon was ‘the one’ because he was willing to be celibate with her until they got married. She told Life & Style:
“He was willing to be celibate with me for a year … He loves God, more than I love God, so I don’t think there’s anything wrong [with him].”
Last month, Meagan explained to Global Grind what ultimately brought her to the decision to become celibate:
“I was crying about so much at the time that God told me exactly what it was going to be and he 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 he told me to not settle.
“So I would meet guys who are Christians or loved the Lord, but they weren’t trying with all their heart to walk with him. And I wouldn’t feel in myself that that was the guy, so even if I liked him or was attracted to him I would say, ‘OK I’m not going to 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.
“I came and did this thing in his church where I talked about my testimony. I already told my godsister in the car on the way over there. Oh, he’s my husband I know that. And we didn’t start dating till three months after that.”
And while Meagan isn’t ready to reveal their wedding date just yet, she did reveal the luxurious location.
“We found the venue, which I’m really excited about, and it’s going to be in Malibu,” she told Life & Style. “I know I want to go for a bayou-themed kind of Spanish mosque, a very enchanted-y Twilight feel.”
