Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin are divorcing after nine years of marriage.

The actress and film producer, who met during production of the 2011 movie Jumping the Broom, issued a joint statement to People magazine on Tuesday.

“After much prayer and consideration, we have decided to go into our futures separately but forever connected,” Good and Franklin said in the 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.”

Good, 40, and Franklin, 43, were married in June 2012. They called their relationship a “blessing.”

“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,” the pair concluded their statement.

The news comes after Good’s recent starring role in Amazon Prime Video’s Harlem series, which began streaming this month.

Franklin also has had his share of success as a former Sony Columbia Pictures Director of Development, a film producer (The Pursuit of Happyness, Seven Pounds), author and motivational speaker.

In 2015, the couple published a book titled “The Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love” that explored their keys to success as a couple.

They appeared together in 2017 on the OWN relationship series Black Love, and Good discussed how her sense of self evolved after marrying Franklin.
