Torn Over Children

I am in a wonderful supportive relationship with a man who I adore, and who adores me. recently we got engaged after dating for 2 years; (we spent 18 months dating long distance (he lived an hour away) and then we moved in together and have been peaceful co-existing for the past 8 months); I am happier than I have ever been in my life. the problem is that this would be my second marriage; my first marriage was troubled - my ex-husband ran around on me, drank, and was abusive; I left him after 3 years with our young son; my son and I relocated to start over and after living in this new town for awhile I met this wonderful man. my problem is that I no longer want anymore children and my fiancée' is an only child and would love to have at least one child. I am at my wit's end because this will make or break our relationship because I am too honest a person to enter a marriage knowing that we have differing views on having a baby. any advice you can give would be appreciated greatly.
