From the Inside Jacket Cover: Hollywood power couple DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good candidly share about their courtship and marriage, and the key to their success—waiting.
President/CEO of Franklin Entertainment and former Sony Pictures executive DeVon Franklin and award-winning actress Meagan Good have learned sometimes all we can do is wait for “the one” to come into our lives. They spent years crossing paths but it wasn’t until they were thrown together while working on the film Jumping the Broom that their storybook romance began.
Faced with starting a new relationship and wanting to avoid potentially devastating relationship pitfalls, DeVon and Meagan chose to do something almost unheard of in today’s society—abstain from sex until they were married.
In The Wait, DeVon and Meagan share the life-changing message that waiting—rather than rushing a relationship—can help you find the person you’re meant to be with. Filled with candid his-and-hers accounts of the most important moments of their relationship, and practical advice on how waiting for everything—from dating to sex—can transform relationships, allowing you to find a deep connection based on patience, trust, and faith.
Considering that Hollywood is not known for its portrayal of chaste women, then the fact that Franklin is a Corporation executive and Good is an actress makes this book all the more spectacular. This is the way it used to be. Everything that Hollywood is portraying in the movies and on the TV is not true. Franklin and Good are a married couple and they have written “The Wait” to show us how a dating relationship should be. And it turns out that abstaining from sex actually fortifies your relationship. If you are not married then I recommend this book for you. If you have children then I say that they should be read this book. I believe that what this couple have to say will benefit them highly. It is a marvelous story.
