Um.. it actually wasn't very ambiguous. It was pretty plain as day that they were a couple after the last scene is season 8. The way they act toward each other in the final episode, as well as the episode TrustNo1, is quite direct about their non-platonic relationship.

Well actually it is said in the commentaries for season 8 and 9 that they were in fact together. Just putting in my two cents.

When Scully's eggs were retrieved (by Mulder), she asked Mulder to be the donor to fertilize the eggs.  Scully went through a fertility clinic so they did not actually have sex.  Because he donated his semen, he is technically is the father of the baby.  In the episode "Existence" from season 8, after Scully has the child, Mulder comes to visit her.  He says to her "I think what we feared were the possibilities. The truth we both know." Then Scully said "Which is what?"  Then they kissed.  I think that began a very complicated relationship as a couple.  After that episode he disappeared for awhile.  When he came back, he full out kissed her in front of Skinner, so I would say that they were a couple after the episode Existence.  Hope that helped.

Chris Carter answered in an interview that yes, Mulder is the father of Scully's baby.

Also, they most definitely were and are a couple as evidenced by the last movie, as well as all the making out in the series finale and the fact the series ended with them in bed together.

In season 8 Per Manum it shows that Mulder is a sperm donor for Scully, but we also find out that it didn't take.  He tells her "never give up on a miracle."  They did however sleep together, we find this out in season 7 all things.  The beginning shows her getting dressed in Mulder's bathroom, then they pan over to Mulder naked under the sheets.  Mulder is the father of Scully's baby.
