Relationship Commitment: By buying a house and proposing marriage to Bree, George wanted to demonstrate his commitment to a future together. It shows that he is ready to take a significant step forward in their relationship and offer stability.

Surprise Element: George might have used the purchase of the house to create a memorable moment for the proposal. Telling Bree about the house provides a context for the proposal, establishing an element of surprise, which makes the event even more unforgettable.

Emotional Connection: Buying a house carries a meaningful emotional value, symbolizing the start of a new chapter in life. In this case, George aimed to create an emotional connection with Bree, indicating they could build their future family together in the new home.

Pressure to Accept: Another possible motive behind showing the house could involve placing pressure on Bree to say yes to the proposal. The act of purchasing a house depicts a significant investment, and Bree might not want to hurt George’s feelings or devalue his effort by rejecting his proposal.
