Meagan Good Says She’s a “Ride or Die” Submissive Wife


downloadBy: Krystle Crossman

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.



  1. I believe in mutual submission . Men don’t know everything . I need my wife’s input. I have seen too many families suffer as a man tries a my way or the highway approach .

    I agree with Meagan. My husband and I are both ‘ride or die’. Over the years I have grown to better understand what being submissive truly means.
    He has my back, as I have his. I support him in his decisions, and his endeavors, as he supports mine.
    I’m not saying our marriage is perfect, but over the years it has gotten better with time. We attend church together, as well as volunteer our time with the various activities through our church.
    He wakes up in the morning telling me how much he loves me, and how beautiful I am. Of course, I reciprocate. We never fail to show each other how much we love and respect one another.
    We have been married for 28 years. God is good!

  3. I agree with Meagan a black woman needs to play her position. When u have a good man be the best wife u can be. Alot of black women are single because they want to be the man. I’m 41 married at 18. I have a loving husband and hes good to me.

  4. I personally believe in and live gender equality. I am no more equipped than my wife is. We work together. The idea of a woman being submissive is very counter productive in relationships where the male is selfish or worse abusive.

  5. It is frustrating to see that so many people believe that a woman must submit to a man. People use such thinking to justify mistreating women. Look at the Middle East .
