Meagan Good is finally breaking her silence about her heartbreaking divorce from Devon Franklin.
On Monday, Good appeared in a Twitter Spaces conversation alongside the leading ladies of Amazon Prime’s original series, Harlem.
During the conversation hosted by xoNecole, they discussed different goals and love life in today’s day and age.
The actress explained how her original views on relationships have changed since her divorce and that it was “the most painful thing she’s experienced.”
“Throughout life, I’ve always approached relationships as understanding that at some point, they’ll get to the place that they’re going to, and then they would be over,” she said.
“I’ve always had an attitude like, ‘Alright, next chapter. We’ll see what’s next,’ and being okay with that and appreciating what you give to someone and what they give to you and sharing that moment in time and in life that you never get back regardless of how it ends.”
Good explained that she thought Franklin was the one. “I thought that that would be the last time that I would be doing that and that I would be doing this with that person forever. I still am hopeful for the future. I still- maybe this isn’t the chapter, but I feel that it’s my next act in life, and I trust God,” she said.
The “Harlem” star shared that not everything in her life is making sense right now, but she’s still optimistic. “And I’m excited to see what this next act of life is going to be and what God has in store and that’s all I can really do,” said Good.
Although Good expressed her gratitude for this growing season in her life, she did admit that she is still hurting. “Still grieving, still hurt. It’s going to be a long time, but at the end of the day, it has made God, even more, my lover and even more my husband, and even brought our relationship to new depths and new heights, so I’m in gratitude for that,” she said.
“Every season, every single part has been incredible,” explained Good. “But I think it’s important for every relationship to know that it’s really about perspective, and it really is how you perceive and look at things and trust in God in the process no matter what it is.”
After nine years of marriage, the two announced they were getting a divorce.
“After much prayer and consideration, we have decided to go into our futures separately but forever connected,” Good and Franklin said in a joint statement.
“We celebrate almost a decade of marriage together and a love that is eternal. There’s no one at fault, we believe this is the next best chapter in the evolution of our love. We are incredibly grateful for the life-changing years we’ve spent together as husband and wife. We are also extremely thankful to God for the testimony being created inside us both and for blessing our lives with each other.”
Over the past decade, the actress and producer have offered candid glimpses into their relationship, including various interviews, sweet Instagram posts, and their New York Times best-seller book The Wait, which they co-wrote together detailing their personal love story.
The couple’s breakup was one that was unexpected, but Good seems to be positive about her future love life.
