Liam and Miley's Proposal Story Is Decidedly *Not* as It Seems

In that a proposal didn't actually take place...But they're still getting married...

Much like Romeo and Juliet or Katniss and Peeta (literature's two great romances), Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus are destined to be together. At least that's what her U-Haul move into his home/heart (opens in new tab) seems to imply. 

The couple is reportedly engaged (opens in new tab) following a lengthy split during which Miley re-tooled her image and made us feel awkward about foam fingers, but an actual proposal from Liam didn't exactly take place.

Apparently, The Hunger Games star "never formally proposed (opens in new tab)," and Miley just casually started wearing the Neil Lane ring that he gave her during engagement 1.0. "Liam noticed," a a source says. "They are telling friends they're engaged."

To be honest, this sounds pretty ideal. The idea that women should wait around for their boyfriends to drop down on one knee seems archaic, and if Miley wants to wear her massive 3.5-carat diamond ring without a formal proposal, more power to her. Crazier things have happened...like literally every single thing she did on tour.
