The pair has been candid about how the relationship came to be, and they even wrote a book sharing their experience with abstinence, and how waiting to have sex until they were married strengthened their bond.

In a recent interview with Tamron Hall on her new ABC talk show, Good revealed that she knew Franklin was the one even before they started dating.

RECALLING THEIR JOURNEY

Meagan and Devon met on the set of the film “Jumping the Broom.” She was one of the stars, and he was a producer.

Franklin said the key was to know their boundaries and triggers. They also didn’t live together until after the marriage, although they did have sleepovers.

At the time, Good was on the last stages of a “not so great relationship,” and after getting to meet Devon on set, she thought he was the kind of man she wished she could marry.

However, Meagan and Devon were both clear on the professional nature of their relationship, and they didn’t meet again until the premiere of the film nine months later.

During that time, Good hit a wall in her personal life and asked God for guidance. That’s when she received instructions on how to proceed in life, as she explained:

“The first thing God told me was that it was time to get out of that relationship. The second thing that God told me was that it was time to be celibate. The third thing God told me was that Devon was my husband.”

MEETING THE HUSBAND

Meagan was surprised because she didn’t know Devon that well at the time, but she rolled with it and started working on herself, dealing with old traumas and emotional issues to get ready for her future husband.

She even started telling friends and family that Devon was her husband, to which they would reply, “oh really? Does he knows that?”

Meanwhile, Devon says he never tried anything with Meagan because, aside from not wanting to cross the tine between executive and talent, he thought she was way out of his league.

Then, on the day of the “Jumping the Broom” premiere, they started talking, and he realized Meagan was interested in him.

“Meanwhile, I told all my girlfriends, I was like, you’re going to meet my husband tonight,” Meagan recalled, explaining that she and her friend were following Devon around like teenage schoolgirls.

They went out on a date two weeks after that. Ten months later, they were engaged, and two months after that, they tied the knot.

AVOIDING THE TRIGGERS

During that time before getting married, Meagan and Devon were celibate, and they admit it wasn’t that easy.

Franklin said the key was to know their boundaries and triggers. They also didn’t live together until after the marriage, although they did have sleepovers.

But like any human, there were days one of them was weak, and the other had to be strong for both. Still, Devon said they wanted the same thing, and that’s what kept them going until the end. 

“So it was both of us wanting the same thing, but being okay to let moment by moment dictate what we did in those moments," Devon concluded.
