Meagan Good Considered Returning To Celibacy After Divorce With Ex-Husband DeVon Franklin: When I Realized It Was Happening I Was Devastated! 

Meagan Good admitted she thought of taking a break from sex after her devastating divorce from DeVon Franklin.

In a recent interview with Essence, actress Meagan Good was candid about the feeling of failure and devastation as she went through a divorce with ex-husband DeVon Franklin after nine years of marriage. According to Meagan Good, the decision to walk away wasn’t hers. She shared:

“It’s nothing that I would have ever chosen, and when I realized that it was happening, I was devastated. I was like, ‘This is me, Lord. I did everything that I could do to the best of my ability. I don’t understand why I did all these things, and then this is my end result.’”

Despite author DeVon Franklin wanting to end their union she considers him to be “an incredible and beautiful person.” She put an end to the rumors that her ex-husband decided to leave due to infidelity, nor was it because she didn’t want to have children, which she insists she does. The 41-year-old said the circumstances that came with marriage was tough to deal with. She admitted:

 “I struggled with that. I was like, ‘I don’t know if I should be celibate now. I don’t know what I should do.’ I even was at a point early on when I felt, obviously, I still believe in Jesus, but I’m not sure what to believe about anything else anymore.”

As previously reported, the ex-couple took to social media to announce their split in Dec. 2021. In a joint statement, Good and Franklin, 44, shared:

“We are incredibly grateful for the life-changing years we’ve spent together as husband and wife. We are also extremely thankful to God for the testimony being created inside us both and for blessing our lives with each other.” 

Their divorce was settled on June, 23, 2022, a week before their 10-year wedding anniversary.

Good revealed:

         “That was rough because my biggest fear was what happened between my mom and my dad would to happen to me, which is you’ve been with your husband for 10 years and you break up. I would say, ‘I’m never getting divorced. I’m in it forever, good, bad, whatever it is, I’m never going to give up. You’re my person, I’m your person, that’s it.’”

The “Stomp The Yard” star disclaimed God is not to blame for her divorce. She elaborated:

  “DeVon and I both have free will. So, I had to accept that God didn’t lie when he told me that was my husband. That was my husband. But he didn’t say we’d be together forever. God’s word remains true no matter what happens to you and if anything changes, it’s because sometimes life deals you cards you don’t expect or anticipate, but He’ll still bring you through it and He still has an incredible plan for your life.”
