No spark, now what?

My girlfriend of 6 months is starting to talk about marriage. I love her and all, but I don't have that "spark" you sometimes get in relationships. What now?

I love spending time with her, I honestly think I could be very happy with her for the rest of my life, but there is just something missing. We are super compatible and all and rarely argue. We laugh, smile, and life is great right now.
However, the thought of marriage makes me nervous. Is it wise to keep waiting for that "spark" to come? Something just seems to be missing, and I can't quite put my finger on it.
I shutter at the thought of hurting her, as she has had trouble with relationships in the past. She makes it known that she would be devastated if we ever broke up, and that puts a lot of pressure on me.
I don't know what to do.
