Meagan Good recently spoke with Shamara and Laiya of Philly Hot 107.9 about her relationship with her husband and how she always used to think that marriage was not for her. She said that she was terrified of the thought of being in a relationship with someone forever. She didn’t like the idea of being a submissive person as she was very independent and free-spirited. When she met her husband however, that all changed.
The Think Like a Man too star and her husband Devon Franklin are seen as a happy and loving couple. They genuinely care about each other and are there for one another no matter what. Good said that she realized when she met him that being submissive in a marriage meant something completely different than what she had always thought that it meant. When most people hear that word they think of a woman that doesn’t get the chance to speak for herself and is controlled by her husband. This is definitely not the case for the actress.
She explained that being submissive means being by his side no matter what. She said that he was her “ride-or-die” and she was his. She supported him the way that he supported her. She was there for him no matter what life would bring them and he showed her that same courtesy. For Good, submission means giving up your independent lifestyle to grow with another person by your side.
Good also spoke in the interview about criticism that she gets for her choice of clothing. Franklin is a 7th Day Adventist pastor and people criticize her for wearing what she does because of that. She says that at the end of the day it doesn’t matter what other people think about her. She just continues to stay focused on God and her family and everything else just fades away.
