Meagan Good and Devon Franklin have been very vocal about practicing celibacy before tying the knot, and the couple believes firmly doing so helped their union become stronger.

Meagan also thinks celibacy is the reason her career is taking off and she is encouraging others to give it a try while working on a solid relationship with God.

In their new book, “The Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love,” the couple opens up about why celibacy could be a helpful path for those in the black community.

  1. I think this is great advice. But I understand not everyone will agree. But what’s important is making sure you are in a healthy relationship. If it’s not healthy and it’s not the kind of relationship that uplifts you, it’s not a situation you should stay in.

  2. They are a cute couple. But I’m a little hesitant about telling grown folks what to do and not do with their bodies.

  3. They really do inspire me. I have been celibate for a year now and it’s really hard. A lot of guys don’t want to date a woman they know isn’t going to sleep with them. I’m really hoping I meet a Godly man who can wait until marriage. I know I must be patient but it’s hard sometimes.

  4. They seem to think God punishes people and holds back blessings for having s-x. I don’t agree with that at all. I think s-x can have negative outcomes if you’re not responsible and if you’re dealing with someone who doesn’t have your best interests at heart. People get divorced all the time. What matters is making sure you’re with someone who’s committed to making the relationship work and truly cares about you.

    1. Celibacy could be worth investigating. Practice celibacy and eliminate a number of crimes,STDs and divorces.

      Add to this there appears to be strong evidence that transmutation of one’s sexual energy makes us more powerful. Do we really wish to be seen continuously as Black Breeding slaves?

      Anyone interested in forming an organization to address these issues. I would be interested.
