If you’re a ‘Married At First Sight’ fan (like me), then you know that couples who take the wild risk of marrying a complete stranger have even less chance of success without the help of the show’s experts. . While the 14th season of the Boston-based series has just wrapped up its reunion episode, Season 15 is set to premiere soon and may feature some unexpected faces in the pundit lineup. Does the name DeVon Franklin ring a bell, anyone? If so, it’s more than likely because you’ve been hearing his name for the past few months about his much-discussed divorce from actor Megan Good. And if you’re thinking, “Wait a minute, how in Sam’s name would he qualify as an expert on marriage?” You’re not the only one. Franklin is ready to tackle the side eyes though.

According to entertainment tonightFranklin was approached to do the show before filing for divorce in December 2021, and he made the decision not to let his personal life interfere with business negotiations already underway.

“I was going to say ‘no’ to them because I was embarrassed and that voice in my head said, ‘You’re a failure, how can you help someone save their marriage if yours didn’t work,'” he wrote. he at a Instagram post announce the news. “That voice in my head also made me think about what ‘people’ would say? Would ‘people’ approve or disapprove? And then I had to ask myself: Am I going to live the rest of my life like this? Afraid of what ‘people’ say? And who are ‘people’ anyway? So I went back to the @mafslifetime [Married at First Sight] team and said YES I’m still coming. I REFUSE TO LIVE IN FEAR OR SHAME!”

Legal documents show Franklin and Good split in August 2021 due to irreconcilable differences, with the divorce filing in December. After meeting on the set of the movie ‘Jumping the Broom’, the former couple married in 2012 and have no children. Harlem star Megan Good has also been vocal about the divorce.

“Throughout my life, I’ve always approached relationships with the idea that at some point they’ll reach the place they’re going, and then they’d be over,” she shared on Instagram. “I’ve always had an attitude of, ‘Okay, next chapter. We’ll see what the future holds,’ and being OK with that and appreciating what you give to someone and what they give you and a moment in time and in the sharing a life that you will never get back no matter how it ends In my situation right now it’s a little different because I thought this would be the last time I would do that and I would do this with that person forever to do.”

Veteran MAFS experts Dr. Pepper Schwartz and Pastor Calvin Roberson aren’t just longtime show favorites, they both have “rich” personal marriage histories with long-term husbands. The addition of Devon Franklin certainly raises eyebrows, but may be just what the season needs to spice it up a bit. He will be joined by another Married at First Sight rookie, Dr. Pia Holec, a celebrated psychotherapist with a specialty in sex and relationship therapy. You can watch Season 15 from July 6 anywhere you get your TV fix.
