Meagan Good Says God Told Her DeVon Franklin Was The One Before They Even Dated

God won't open doors you aren't prepared to enter.

Meagan Good knew that DeVon Franklinwas her husband before they even started dating and that was a word for me because I, too, have several husbands in my head who are oblivious to our future matrimony.

The difference between me and Meagan's situation is, God actually told her that DeVon was her future partner in life and on a recent episode of the Tamron Hall Show, the 38-year-old actress shared exactly how it went down.

The couple, who initially met on the set of Jumping the Broom, sat down with the host and explained that although they didn't immediately start dating after they met, Meagan quickly decided that DeVon was exactly the type of man she could see herself marrying.

But God won't open doors you aren't prepared to enter, and that's exactly why Meagan was given a few prerequisites before making the man of her dreams, her partner in life––for starters, she had to get out of the relationship she was already in.

"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."

With these instructions, it was on and cracking. Meagan began to speak what she wanted into existence, even if he didn't know it yet.

"I started telling friends and family that DeVon was my husband and they were like, 'Oh really? Does he know that?"'

Meanwhile, DeVon explained that he was totally unaware of Meagan's plans for his future. Despite this fact, Meagan was relentless in the pursuit of the man God said would one day be her husband:

"I told all my girlfriends, I was like, 'You're going to meet my husband tonight.' So we're following him around the party like teenage schoolgirls. We went out two weeks later and literally, from the time of going out, it was ten months later we were engaged and two months later we were married."

Early last week, our good sis Shellie R. Warren gave us the game on choosing a partner––and a path, and the couple says knowing this fact has been essential to their journey. The couple say that the shared desire to remain celibate helped them keep that promise to one another until their wedding day:

"We had to know our triggers. That means some nights we couldn't Netflix and chill. We couldn't do it! We had sleepovers, but again, you had to know your boundaries."
"Some days I'd be weak, she'd be strong, some days she'd be weak, I'd be strong. 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."

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
