Not saying your point is invalid, but not everyone wants to get married period, and not because they're not committed to their partner. I know people who have been together and been together for more than 20 years but don't want to go through the whole hubub of marriage. Marriage does not solve problems, nor does it necessarily signify commitment. Plenty of couples get married BECAUSE their relationship is in trouble, because they think this "sign of commitment" will solve their problems. These two should have a discussion about their relationship in general, and how committed to each other they are without bringing up marriage, because that can bring in a lot of things (like social obligations, expectations, etc) that will just mess up the conversation. She might feel obliged to say yes, even if she doesn't really want to, or she might feel obliged to say no even though she actually wants to, depending on what feeling she's getting from Robby about his feelings and why he's asking.
