“It’s that waiting period where we really get the most anxiety and the most frustration, so we’re gonna be writing a book that will address that, and we believe we’ll be very helpful,” DeVon said.

He told Essence Magazine in 2012 that he and Good held one another accountable before their marriage on the abstinence front, as they were both committed to waiting.

“The idea of disrupting that or potentially corrupting the union by doing anything less than honoring our commitment kept us both motivated and committed to keeping each other accountable,” he said.

Before their marriage, Good (Eve’s Bayou, Californication) told Life & Style magazine she knew Franklin was right for her because he agreed to wait to be intimate.

“He loves God, more than I love God, so I don’t think there’s anything wrong (with him),” Good said of Franklin.

The book is expected to hit shelves in 2014.
