Will my husband ever want to have children?

I'm an Indian girl, I had an arranged marriage. I was 26, husband was 30. I knew that husband lived & worked in Singapore, but I didn't know he was so obsessed about staying on there.
Having children was really important to me, I had assumed that its important to my husband too as he comes from a very traditional & well off family & all his cousins have big kids already-he too seemed very traditional.After marriage he told me that he intends to go off to the USA for two years (two years after our marriage) to do an MBA. He also wants me to stay on in Singapore with a job so he can come back & job hunt after his MBA on my Dependent Pass. He hadn't told me any of this before marriage, rather his family had told us that they'd cancelled the marriage alliance of a software engineer girl who wanted to go abroad for just one year for her job as the purpose of marriage was to live together, now we learnt that my husband had always planned to do an MBA he was only waiting to become a Singapore Permanent Resident.Regarding a child, he says that he actually doesn't want a child at all, because the sufferings he's gone through, he doesn't want his child to go through, & this is something about which he's had long discussions with his parents, because they obviously want a grandchild. He says he'd even asked them to find him a girl who doesn't want kids, but he might have kids due to social pressure later.
Do you think he'll ever want kids?
