Laz Alonso’s Jumping the Broom character decided to wait until after marriage to engage in sexual activity, and Laz might just be considering that for real life.
Laz, who is friends with his “Deception” co-star, Meagan Good, and her husband DeVon Franklin, described the two as role models.
According to Meagan and DeVon, they abstained from sex and waited for “I dos” to be exchanged before taking things to the physical level, much like the fictional Jason and Sabrina of Jumping the Broom.
Though the real-life couple, who’ve been married for seven months, has received a lot of praise for the decision to remain celibate until marriage, not everyone is onboard with that train of thought.
“I think it’s everybody’s choice. People have different ways of going about their emotional and their personal life. I don’t think there’s a right or wrong answer. It’s all opinionated,” said Laz who had to admit that celibacy seemed to be the right choice for Meagan and DeVon.
“I think what worked for Meagan and DeVon obviously has worked very well because they’re madly in love with each other, and they are a role model couple for me,” he said. “They got married, so, maybe I need to try that approach.”
