Martin had failed relationships and endless dates until she met Erik. It didn't take her too long to realize he was her Mr. Right.

Erik is kind, honest, funny and puts family first: he has three beautiful children whom I adore. 

Jill and Erik share the same values and it bonded them to the fullest. They both dream of having a long happy marriage.

And now it finally happened: Jill Martin and Erik Brooks got engaged! 

Erik popped the question last week during their trip to the Hamptons. He said it would be a simple summer party with friends, but Jill knew something was fishy. 

Upon their arrival, Brooks took Martin to a beautiful seaside tent, decorated with romantic mementos — photos, candles, flowers, favorite songs.

After a while, Erik got down on a knee and asked to marry him. This moment surprised Jill so much that she became totally speechless. When she saw him a bit nervous, Martin replied, "Of course, yes!"
