However, Chris wasn't playing basketball at all! He was really going down to Jaclyn's parents' house to ask for her permission in marriage. Immediately Jaclyn's parents thought something was wrong or something bad had happened, but Chris showed them the ring and the tears started. Of course, both Jaclyn's mother and father gave Chris permission. Chris also asked Jaclyn's parents if they would be present when he proposed. He told them the time and location, and they agreed.
Chris then rushed home and told Jaclyn to be ready by 6pm. Jaclyn was even more mad now, because she had to rush an get ready and didn't know why. The two arrived at Belmar boardwalk, 10th Ave, at exactly 6pm and started their walk. Chris kept telling Jaclyn to "look at the waves" or "look at the birds". Jaclyn didn't understand why he was making stupid conversation. Later she found out that Jaclyn's parents had parked right on the boardwalk and he didn't want her to see their car.
As Jaclyn and Chris got to 17th Ave, Chris decided the two would turn back. At this point, Chris asks Jaclyn if she wanted to go down on the beach. She agreed and the couple started to make their way down to the water. As they turned the corner, Jaclyn saw her mother and father standing there with cameras. She was so confused and claimed her parents were "stalking" her. No one said anything to her, and she could see her parents tearing up. Jaclyn then realized what was going on. Chris asked if Jaclyn could turn around. She turned around to find Chris on one knee with a beautiful ring in the middle of the boardwalk, at sunset. Seriously perfect! The rest is a little bit blurry, I just remember putting the ring on and saying yes!
