Engagement

My girlfriend and I have known each other for over 5 years. We dated back in 2006, split up when she moved away, and got back together when she moved back in '09.

A few months ago, we spontaneously started calling each other "fiance." For the last few weeks, she's been watching wedding shows and talking about plans for our wedding in 2012.

Last weekend she mentioned that once I propose to her, she'll start wearing her grandmother's ring as an engagement ring. I commented that a proposal seemed redundant as we had pretty much agreed that we were getting married.

Now, she's upset.

So, TQC: is a proposal the asking to see if marriage is in the plans, as I see it? Or, is it part of the process and necessary even if the answer has already been discussed, as she sees it?
