Meagan Good opened up about her marriage to Pastor Devon Franklin during a recent visit to the Tamron Hall Show - and says that God told her to be celibate and that Devon would be her husband way before the two started dating.
“It’s really interesting because we had met four years prior to working on ‘Jumping The Broom.’ He was the executive on ‘Jumping The Broom,’ I was the actress on the film. And I was in the tail end of a not so great relationship. We just weren’t right for each other. I really got a chance to get to know [Devon] on set. I thought, ‘Man, that’s the kind of guy I wish I could marry.’ And that was it. He’s the guy who gives you the job, that’s all I thought about it.”
She continued: “And then I got back from Nova Scotia filming, and I was like ‘Man Lord I’m at a really hard place. I’m at a standstill in my life. What am I supposed to be doing?’ The first thing that 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 celibate. And the third thing that God told me was that Devon was my husband.”
Meagan said that she began working on herself to secure her man.
