I kind of agree

And kind of don't. Elrond says, "If Aragorn survives this war, you will still be parted. If Sauron is defeated and Aragorn made king, and all that you hope for comes true, you will still face the bitterness of mortality."

Emphasis is mine of course, but I think Elrond is encompassing everything that ever happens to Arwen. He doesn't deny that she could have a child, but that's not the point he's trying to make. He's simply saying that even if the best of the best happens and she has a wonderful life, ultimately mortality will creep upon Aragorn, and the two of them will be separated. I think he's just urging her to make that separation now and go to live eternally with him in Valinor.

"...not till now have I understood the tale of your people and their fall.
As wicked fools I scorned them, but I pity them at last.
For if this is indeed, as the Eldar say, the gift of the One to Men,
it is bitter to receive." -Arwen Undómiel
