“The Wait” Living a Celibate Lifestyle Before Marriage


by: Dominique Wilson

Actress Meagan Good and husband DeVon Franklin are in the process of writing a relationship book entitled “The Wait”. It has an early release date of 2014 and the book is centered around Meagan and DeVon’s Christian faith and their decision to practice abstinence until they were married. Before Devon met Meagan he was celibate for 10 years and Meagan was celibate for a few months. In the book, Meagan talks about how from the moment she met DeVon she knew he was her husband. She also explains how she prayed about him and some other issues that God was dealing with her with.

In the world we live in right now you don’t see something like this being publicized all so often and more so you don’t hear people 35 and younger talking about saving themselves until marriage. Everything on the television, magazines and music is mostly about sex and how little clothes women and men can wear. There aren’t many people in entertainment encouraging their peers or people in the younger generation to cover up their bodies, stay classy, respect women and save themselves for marriage. No matter your background and no matter what you have done in the past, is it really possible to live a celibate lifestyle before marriage?
