DeVon Franklin Excited About 2015 Release of Relationship Book With Meagan Good

Devon Franklin

DeVon Franklin recently appeared on "The Real" talk show where he revealed that he and his wife would release a relationships book this year.

Franklin, the 36-year-old husband, Hollywood executive and Seventh-day Adventist minister, is married to popular Christian actress Meagan Good. Since exchanging vows in 2012, the couple have been vocal about their union and events leading up to it.

Now that they are working to release a relationship book, Franklin expressed his excitement about the venture.

"I'm working on my first relationship book with my wife that will be out this year. So I'm really, really excited about that," he said during a recent appearance on the talk show. "..I really wanted to help people get healthy in their relationship as a way to have a healthy life."

While visiting the talk show, Franklin spoke about ways to keep a marriage exciting.

"Never take your spouse for granted and never letting it get stale by always checking in, always making sure that they're available and that you're available for them," he said.

Good, 33, appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last year where she spoke about the relationships book she is co-authoring with her husband.

"We're writing a book; it's called The Wait," she told talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. "I'd been in a couple relationships and I was like, 'You know, this isn't really working for me.' I wanted to do something different."

The Christian actress explained why she decided to really be serious about remaining abstinent.

"Spiritually, I believe its what I should have done, and so, I was like, 'You know, I'm going to try it this way,'" Good recalled to Kimmel.

Franklin and Good married in 2012 after a highly publicized romance. However, she admitted that celibacy was a part of both she and her husband's commitment to one another.

"It was very different and its been amazing," Good told Kimmel. "He had been celibate for almost 11 years because he's a minister. He didn't want to get up on the pulpit and do his thing and not be doing what he was saying."

Although some may believe it to be simple to write a book about waiting before marriage to engage in intercourse, Good insisted that is not the case.

"You'd be surprised. Obviously, we all know that it's tough, but there were tricks that we learned that actually helped," she said. "One of them was parting ways, when its time to part ways. If you feel like it's getting too hot and heavy, you just have to go [away]."

In 2013, Franklin spoke up about the book and why it was of importance.

"It's that waiting period where we really get the most anxiety and the most frustration, so we're gonna be writing a book that will address that, and we believe we'll be very helpful," Franklin previously told Sister 2 Sister magazine. "It'll be called The Wait."
