Meagan Good Calls Divorce From DeVon Franklin The ‘Most Painful Thing I’ve Ever Experienced In My Life’: I Am Still Optimistic
Meagn Good is breaking her silence, opening up about a very delicate moment in her personal life. Earlier this year, the 40-year-old actress and her 43-year-old husband, DeVon Franklin announced their split.
DeVon, who is an executive for Columbia Pictures and Seventh-day Adventist preacher, and Meagan, an actress became engaged in early April 2012, and were married on June 16, 2012.
The pair had been together for 9 years and had no children. She tells XONecole about their split,
“Throughout life, I’ve always approached relationships as understanding that at some point, they’ll get to the place that they’re going to, and then they would be over. I’ve always had an attitude of like, ‘Alright, next chapter. We’ll see what’s next,’ and being okay with that and appreciating what you give to someone and what they give to you and sharing a moment in time and in life that you never get back regardless of how it ends.”
Meagan notes that this time is different.
“In my situation right now, it’s a little bit different because I thought that that would be the last time that I would be doing that and that I would be doing this with that person forever.”
She called her divorce from DeVon:
“the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced in my life” and while she’s been in the process since August of 2021, she’s still optimistic about what else life has to offer. “I am still optimistic. I still am hopeful for the future. I still—maybe this isn’t a chapter, but I just feel that it’s my next act in life and I trust God. Not everything makes sense to me right now, but I do trust God overall and I’m excited to see what this next act of life is going to be and what God has in store and that’s all I can really do but even in doing that, I do have gratitude and so much joy in my heart for these past 11 years that DeVon and I have been together. What he’s given into my life and what I was able to give to him, just everything.”
On where she is emotionally now, she shares:
“Still grieving, still hurt. It’s going to be a long time, but at the end of the day it has made God, even more, my lover and even more my husband, and even brought our relationship to new depths and new heights so I’m in gratitude for that.”
