Call her up and put her on the spot, she's the one that is holding off. Actually she's afraid to fully commit due to the problems her parents have had through the years. Her mom is one unhappily married woman.

As long as both people are happy who cares if they are married or not!

(Male) friend of mine was in a same situation: lived with the woman (with the kid). He wanted to marry, but she didn't (because of her previous experience). Not sure what happened eventually (as I lost contact after moving from there).
