Meagan Good, 30-year-old "Think Like a Man" actress, recently admitted that her wedding night will be the first time she experiences sexual intimacy with her fiance, preacher and Hollywood producer DeVon Franklin.
"Our wedding night will be the first time we're actually together," Good told Life & Style magazine recently.
Good, who has been vocal about her Christianity in the past, said she knew Franklin was destined to marry her after he was willing to take on a vow of celibacy with her.
"Because he was willing to be celibate with me for a year," Good told the publication. "He loves God, more than I love God, so I don't think there's anything wrong [with him]."
In an interview with Global Grind earlier this year, Good admitted that the road to finding her husband was not an easy one.
"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," Good said. "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."
Franklin, an executive with Sony Pictures Entertainment and Seventh-day Adventist minister, proposed to Good last March in Los Angeles, according to TMZ. The couple reportedly met on the set of the motion picture "Jumping The Broom" where Good was an actress and Franklin was a producer on the set.
Still, Good said things did not start falling into place for the pair until she became celibate.
"Then shortly after that I became celibate. I said, 'Alright Lord, let's see what You have for me," Good told Global Grind. "Oddly enough, Devon and I had known each other for six years and ['Jumping The Broom'] wrapped nine months 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."
The actress described confirming that he would be her husband when visiting his church.
"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," Good said. "Oh, he's my husband I know that. And we didn't start dating till three months after that."
