Please, DO NOT start a family for this reason. It makes having children all about you, and filling a void in your life, and it would be unfair to the child.
It seems like a selfish reason for having a child, and thus part of the problem with the world today.
Best wishes to you on your marriage, but wait a while before you have children.

You're still young. I'm assuming your soon-to-be wife is as well. Don't rush it just so you can experience the joy faster. Some things are worth taking your time.
I find myself asking the question "Is this world savable? Can we ever truly have peace in humanity?"
