We learned last year that Meagan Good and her husband, DeVon Franklin, were working on a book based on the practices that worked for them while they were dating. Specifically, the choice to refrain from having sex until they said “I do.” It was something both parties say helped them find true love and improve their lives. As Good told Jimmy Kimmel last year, “I had been in a couple of relationships and I was like, ‘You know, this isn’t really working for me.’ I wanted to do something different, and spiritually, it’s what I believe I always should’ve done. So I was like, you know, let’s try it this way. It was very different, and it’s been amazing.”
The pair have been happily married since 2012. With all the attention their relationship has garnered, and their hope to share the impact God has had on their lives with others, they’re looking to share tips on relying on faith to find the one in their new book, The Wait. It is finally being released on February 2.
I’m sure you’re wondering what else the book has to offer aside from his-and-hers tips on how to abstain from sex and having the patience to obtain the happy ending you’re seeking. Well, according to the synopsis, the book also asks you these questions to help you practice healthier dating habits:
- Why haven’t I found true love yet?
- What have I been compromising in order to find love?
- How are some of my bad dating habits working against the life I really want?
- What part did I play in the failure of my last relationship?
- What negative patterns do I see myself repeating over and over?
- Am I attracted to people who aren’t right for me?
- What am I ready to sacrifice to become my best self?
- What kind of person do I want in my life?
- What do I deserve?
And the book will allegedly help you “experience firsthand the power of what happens when you put sex on the shelf, work on becoming the best version of yourself, and allow God to bring his vision for your life to fruition.”
Of course, we can’t say if this book will provide you with the answers and relationship you’re looking for. Either way, it should be a good read for the new year. Plus, who doesn’t love this pair?
The Wait is available for pre-order today and comes with exclusive photos from their wedding day. Again, the book is available on shelves February 2.
