Our expert says:
Loving is of course important, but as you've discovered, there much more to a thriving and happy relationship that love. Where a couple are as close as apparently you two were, I prefer to see them enter couples counselling, not to be glued together, but to each understand themselves and each other, and this relationship and the skills of relationships, well enough to make an informed and wise decision either to stay together or to part.
Maybe give yourselves a few weeks to settle and calm down, and then approach her, maybe in writing or by a call, to ask how she's feeling, and to ask how she might feel about such a proposal - a sensible discussion with a referee / coach, as it were. And if she's wrapped up in exams right now, simply send her a message wishing her the best success in the exams, and asking to talk briefly with her when they're done.
