Will Actions Speak Louder Than Words In "New Moon"?

Amanda Bell from The Examiner has written an article addressing the fact that Bella and Edward did not say "I love you" to each other in the film "Twilight" and also if the proposal will be in "New Moon".

In New Moon, Edward's proposal to Bella takes place shortly after Bella explains to Edward that, of all the things she could want in the world, she would want him to be the one to bring her to "the change." The conversation, though beginning as a fairly casual one, becomes serious in the span of a moment.

While Catherine Hardwicke did not forget to incorporate that element of the Twilight saga (that is, the sudden shifts from light chatter into deep conversation between Edward and Bella) into Twilight (and, some contend, perhaps too much so), the fact that there were no three word exchanges makes it even more difficult for The Twilight Saga: New Moon to adequately present a faithful translation of the book to film.

Read the full article here. What do you think? Will Edward & Bella say "I love you" in New Moon? Will the proposal be in New Moon?
