I heard that we do not use the word 'want' after the word 'will' because will includes the meaning 'wish'. But I saw lots of people using the expression like no one will want to marry me.

    I'd like to know where you heard that. "Will" can mean "wish", but it is unlikely that someone using "will want" is using "will" with that definition.

Yes it's perfectly correct. Here's some sentences you could use it in:

No one will want to marry me.

After being alone for so long, I will want to go home.

We will want to rest after the long hike.

Whoever told you this didn't have a great argument. Sure, the word "will" can mean "wish", (although this is a rare usage) but lots of words have multiple meanings. Just because one of them might be wrong doesn't mean they all are.
