See, I simply can't see them being the typical couple, ever. Not to be pessimistic or cruel, but they have some serious demons in the closet that are never going to disappear. War has permeated their daily lives for many years and arguably has altered them permanently. I honestly do not know if they can wash their hands of the blood - redemption and atonement, such prevalent themes in the series, may or may not be possible. Perhaps they can make things right by doing what they need to do - stand trial, build the civilizations and families they have ruined from the ground up, alter the future of the country. I'm sure that's a slow process that takes immense time and effort. All the while, they are likely hoping that what they do really will "make up" for the atrocities committed.

Children, even marriage, take a different sort of effort. I am not saying they wouldn't be willing, but they may not have the capacity to do so. Their goal in this manga has always, /always/ been action - the fate of the country, the military, justice - and it's possible they don't know how to do anything else. They may feel guilty considering luxuries when they had a hand in making others suffer (and this has been alluded to before); the same may go for children. Bringing children into an incomplete world, they may not feel that they should raise children in that environment, especially when they are so deeply intertwined with the sociopolitical goings-on of their country. They aren't civilians, they don't have that luxury right now, and their mindset has definitely been crafted from the military, the war, the life-and-death struggle, and the political unrest with which they have lived.

They are the type of people (IMO, feel free to digress) that would have to put 100% effort into raising that child properly, and would also have to at the very least, cope with their feelings of guilt. They would feel they deserve to bring the child into the world and deserve to have happiness - and that is an immense hurdle for them to break through.

It would be beautiful and nerve-wracking if they were to embark on that path. There's simply a lot of groundwork to be laid before that happens, if it does.
