Nobody else can give you a Yes or No answer to a question like that. Relationship / couples counselling would be a good idea. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a form of glue to stick shaky relationships back together, but should be a way for you both to understand what is happening, how things got this way, and what your practical alternatives now are.
You say "she is pregnant" as though you had nothing to do with it. If this is your child, then you both have major responsibilities towards the child, which must be foremost in your thoughts in deciding what to do next. That does NOT mean "get married for the sake of the child" - its no benefit for the child to be brought up by 2 reluctant, unhappy and squabbling parents. But the child's welfare must be guaranteed, and you will be legally responsible for paying maintenance for the child,long-term.
