I want to know if there are two HIV positive people can they get married? My personal opinion is "yes" as everybody has its right to lead the life. But what the public feels? What are the medical implications of this?

Yes they can. They really are. But be ready for the medical consequences. It's better for them not to have children for their future children will be surely at risk

I too think so, but it will not be good for their childs, and if they both are on earlier stages, then they can marry, and pray to GOD and take medicines that HIV can be tackled off

Of course they can. Their only thing to take into consideration is do they want to have children. The risk of an HIV infected child would be high.

It should be allowed for two people with HIV to marry, but they have to know the risks. But, HIV is a varied disease, with people having different strains of the disease, so even if someone already has HIV they can contract another strain of it from their partner. It's risky.

I would say as long as they both know the other one is, then yes they should be able to get married. Of course, I think a person who is HIV positive should be allowed to marry a non-HIV person if both parties are informed. In either case though I would definitely recommend against bringing children in, as they would likely be positive as well.
