It’s been a pretty good year for Meagan Good. The 30-year-old actress starred in one of the top comedies of the year (Think Like A Man), grabbed the starring role in a new NBC pilot, Notorious, and after years of courting, she’s gearing up to jump the broom with her beau, Sony Pictures exec DeVon Franklin.

Despite being a super cute couple, and in spite of her video vixen image, Good recently let the folks over Life & Style in on a little secret: she and her beau have yet to get it on.

“Our wedding night will be the first time we’re actually together,” she confessed to the glossy.

While some might be shocked, the fact that the pair hasn’t consummated their relationship makes sense. Franklin is a devout Seventh Day Adventist minister, and although she frequently takes on sexy roles, Good is very religious as well. And the fact that he was willing to wait let her know he was the man for her.

“He was willing to be celibate with me for a year,” she told Life & Style. “He loves God, more than I love God, so I don’t think there’s anything wrong [with him].”

How sweet.

While the couple is still mum about a wedding date, Good says they are already busy planning the ceremony.

“We found the venue, which I’m really excited about, and it’s going to be in Malibu. I know I want to go for a bayou-themed kind of Spanish mosque, a very enchanted-y Twilight feel.”

Sounds lovely.

Could you wait until your wedding night to get it in with your boo?

    Nuff said.

    I think that’s great. It has to be hard. I tried to be celibate, but it didn’t last.

    My husband and I didn’t wait until marriage for sex at all. We probably could have, but I don’t really regret it because he’s the one I married, and the sex is great. I feel bad for someone I know. She and her husband waited for marriage before having sex, but their sex life has always been bad and sex is spare. Doesn’t seem fair.

  • freebee33

    I most definitely will be waiting until my wedding night, if he doesn’t come along or won’t wait so be it. I’m happy for her this is so refreshing!

  • jazzyphile

    These “born-again virgins” need to quit.

  • haffie

    God married Adam and Eve first then they had kids. Marriage is an institution but nowdays too many people take it as a joke. Now go explain it to all those kids who are killed or left to spend the rest of their young life in the foster care system.

    Good jobe Meagan, a great man will nerver force a woman to have sex with him and ladies when you find him please don’t forget the STD’s tests and the homo test.

  • au napptural

    ….Side-eye on the announcement. I think she’s played the loose character so often (i.e. Think Like A Man) she’s scared people will confuse it with real life. If you’re that chaste you don’t have to announce it. That’s private.

  • Cia

    Love Meagan! People are critical of her speaking out but I think that many couples need to hear that waiting is possible and is okay.

  • http://afrikanmami.blogspot.com African Mami

    We are together six years and I’ll be waiting?! hehehehehehehehehe. NEVER!

    I will seduce you and we gon go to Amsterdam, and gerrir onnnnnnnn all night long! RED LIGHT DISTRICT MBAMBY

    iQgraphics and Ms.Info,girls this your domain! Your commentary is so NECESSARY.

  • Tifani

    That’s so true, I mean that should be between you and your man … NOT you and the world!!!!!!!!!

  • S.

    I was on Jezebel reading an article about Lolo Jones and her Christian values. People were complaining about Lolo publicly proclaiming that she’s saving herself for marriage as “a gift” for her husband and yet gets annoyed when the media asks her about it

    As a virgin and a Christian, I obviously don’t have a problem with either Meagan or Lolo being proud or publicly acknowledging themselves as virgins. I wish more of us would do it. Young girls need to see that you can be beautiful, popular and wanted and still remain celibate.

    However, I do see a contradictory with Meagan and the roles she picks as a young Christian woman (not so much Think Like A Man though) but then again, doesn’t seem like she wants to be considered a role model

    “He was willing to be celibate with me for a year,” she told Life & Style. “He loves God, more than I love God, so I don’t think there’s anything wrong [with him].”

    Ummm… Shouldn’t he be waiting WITH her and not ON her? He’s a practicing minister, right??? O_o

  • Insight

    Can you imagine waiting 6 years and you found out his junk doesnt work……I’m sure that won’t happen of course, but that did happen to one of the girls on my team… such a disspointment

  • MySister’sKeeper

    So nice until the “homo test.” That’s not cool.

  • BK_Betty

    Totally agree. It’s very TMI. No one wants to know all that. If you want to share your spirituality, that’s great, but I’m not untreated in what you are doing (or not doing) in private. Discretion is classy.

  • Laugh

    Wait, so they been together 6 years? I guess I missed that in the article. I thought she said a year? Anyway it’s good to let people know so others can see its possible. Also some white actresses have done the same & let the media know and they certainly didn’t get flack for it. She’s truly blessed to find a man willing to wait for her!

  • Toni

    That’s what I’m saying. I’m not too sanctified to say I want a test drive, before I buy the car. Go ahead Megan, if you like it I love it sista!

  • Ms. Information

    To each his own girl, but what does she want, a proverbial cookie? I don’t think it is anyone in the publics business….BUT Megan, don’t get mad when after we know yall consummated that the media pays extra attention to the relationship…don’t ask for privacy then..

  • Dalili

    Oh good, am glad am not the only one that thought that was a bit of an over-share.

  • http://www.homegirlblog.com HomegirlBlog

    I did. But I was 19 when we met and um…unexperienced. We married when I was 23 after graduation. And he’s also very Christian and told me I was a prize. He treats me like one too, whether I deserve it or not.

  • Leo the Yardie Chick

    @Ms. Information – Too true. Give the media an inch about your personal life, especially your sex life, and they take a highway worth of miles.

  • Yulez

    It is so amusing! Folks hate people that decide not to have sex. As I’ve posted times before, 1) premarital sex ain’t for everybody & 2) sex ain’t for everybody. If you’re having sex, good for you. Do YOU want a cookie?

  • binks

    No you aren’t the only one. I mean good for her but I don’t think telling the public your business is wise.

  • http://afrikanmami.blogspot.com African Mami

    Girl, we ain’t telling our business. You should be asking her, does she want a cookie for not bussing her cherry?!

    Like I do not see why these celebrities bother to address personal matters who gives a fug if they are fugging each other like rabbits. Live your life however you deem fit!

  • Crystal

    If someone is promiscuous they get talked about and apparently if they choose celibacy they get lambasted as well…smh. Props to Good for what she is doing. Not everyone is having sex and life is just as grand without it. It’s cool to see someone in the public eye you can identify with without it being sex driven. People who have sex often make people who choose not to have sex feel like we are abnormal or aliens like we exists in some weird land far far away. Or if we are around you something must be wrong with us because we CHOOSE not to have sex. Everyone has a choice. Live and let live.

  • http://commentarybyvalentina.wordpress.com/ Val

    That’s what I was thinking.

  • cee

    Lol.

  • Isis

    Good for them. I struggle with waiting but hats off to those that dont

  • Robbie

    Good for them! I don’t know her personal business nor do I care. In a world obssess with sex and where we see so many baby mamas, single mothers and people having sex left right, eventhough she is not a role model to me, people should understand that not everyone is interested in doing anything and I mean all the things that you can possibly imagine unless it is with their husband.

    Gotta give it to the real virgins out there that are waiting and don’t let peer pressure nor so called friends and most of all the media pressured them to do it before they are married. If some don’t believe in marriage and want to give their goodies to anyone that is not willing to commit to them, it’s their busines. On the other hand, others rather have self control and wait until God blesses them with the ONE.

  • http://www.poshmiss.com Poshmiss_com

    Wait. If you are Christian you should be waiting too. Too many of us out here saying we follow Christ but are clearly against his word in our actions. Sex is all in the media and celibacy is not. I’m glad she put it out there so people like myself can proudly shout “me too”! I choose Christ over sex anyday. And since I’m an unmarried Christian, I’m waiting for my wedding night. Self control is Sexy. I know virgin men and celibate men and I know their wives will respect that gift. Because it is a gift, the world has corrupted what God made sacred. I’ve seen both sides and Gods way is the best way.

  • grateful

    this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • grateful

    haffie is very right.

  • simplyme

    agreed

  • grateful

    what’s wrong with you people?

    whenever people talk or sing about their very active s*x lives we b!tch and complain about what kind of role models they make and how they are “s*xualizing ” the kids who buy their stuff, but when somebody who has NEVER been in trouble, NEVER had a baby oow , never had h*e rumors tells us that she waited we say it’s too much info?!?

  • Elle Michelle

    Exactly.

  • Elle Michelle

    I concur.

  • Elle Michelle

    @Yulez: Preach!

  • Ja Moss

    I would like to congratulate Megan and her fiance for doing what goes against the norm of this now sex crazed society.

    God Bless their union, and because my daughter is a fan of Megan’s I can’t wait to share this with her.

    Lets celebrate with them, and celebrate a good thing. I’m glad that she did NOT keep this private. We need to hear more of this. Maybe one household at a time the nation will turn it’s back on the ignorance that floods the TV shows, movies, and music.

  • overseas_honeybee

    +1. It’s rare to hear someone stand up for what they believe in and be that example of what is right for those proclaiming Christianity. So what if some would classify her as a “born-again virgin.” Most of us who came to Christ at a “later age” can tell you some “stories” that could peel paint off the walls … self included.

    The Word places mandates on us as Christians and when we come into the full knowledge of that … we need to make the adjustment and move forward. Being celibate is not easy (TRUST …) but it can done.

  • OSHH

    I have to concur here but also I also agree with Binks above, folk need to keep their private business private. Same thing with LoLo
    Encouraging young girls to cherish and value themsleves sexually and otherwise is great but discussing your sex like plans and things like that with the general public ungodly people and otherwise is just not very smart or ladylike.

  • Yancy

    Thats really true. But wait for it…. it will have those who would not agree!!

  • Gege

    I totally agree with you! and I thought I was the only who got this: “Ummm… Shouldn’t he be waiting WITH her and not ON her? He’s a practicing minister, right??? O_o” I would hope that’s what she meant to say.

  • Noemi

    If its true I say more power to her because it isnt easy. And for those of you that are saying nobody wants to hear that, why’d you read the article then?

  • Tiffany

    Virgin means never had sex ..Know the difference .. God is in control no need to explain anything to anyone.. Period!!!

  • dhonesty

    y do ppl feel the need to tell ppl they aren’t having sex or they will when ……… who cares.. your business is just that.. ppl volunteer too much personal shyt..

  • mstoni

    Even though it’s nobody’s business, It’s great that they desire to give honor where honor is due and they want to please the creator(God) who instituted marriage.
    Thank God for Designing sex as worship to HIM! Song of Solomon chapter 4….
    When they do consumate.. it will be a beautiful and spiritual oneness.
    Praise God for them both and may God continue to Bless them, richly and keep them…
    UnDeRdAbLoOd of JeSuS!

  • Raquel

    If this is true, GREAT!! There is nothing wrong with being old fashioned. Anyhow, it makes the wedding night even more exciting and worthwhile. They will be together forever (hopefully), so this should not be an issue. GOD is first in their lives and that is all they need to help them through temptation and whatever else!! Congrats!
