Why is he marrying her? Is is for love or out of pity. If he loves her and is marrying her because he loves her, it is quite safe as long as they take all the precautions. If he is marrying her out of pity, then advise him not to do so because it will create a lot of problems down the line. Remember, so far, HIV/AIDs is a terminal illness, until science discovers a cure. So he needs to think hard before making a decision that he may regret or that may end up causing hurt to all involved. If he loves her he can be her friend and support her through her illness. What are her thoughts on the matter? After all marriage is between two individuals. Maybe she would prefer to have him as a friend keeping in mind her illness.

He is still in love with that girl from his college age and he wants to marry her but now as she's suffering from this diseases he is scared but as everyone know Magic Johnson who was diagonsed a year ago and now he has a normal life and its been told by the docter that it is also possible to have kids even one of the parent is suffering from HIV AIDS without anything happing to child,but the only thing which is troubling him alot is that the people around him will start boycouting his family which he dosent want.

the first thing they should do is go to a doctor who must explain them the logical precautions they must adopt. If they love each other they should marry, of course. Nowadays aids virus carriers have a normal life if they take the proper medication...i am sure all of you remember Magic Johnson right? he was diagnosed 15 years ago and he still has a normal life and he's not ill at all. Also today it's possible to have kids without aids even when one of the parents does have the virus....all they need to do is be careful, and that's what the doctor is for.

Yes i do agree with you,but dont you think he and his wife will be boycotted by the people who will stay around him,because i have seen people who are suffering form hiv aids and they prefered to stay alone rather than been noticed.

Mind your language nihal87! Having HIV (Human Immune Virus) and suffering from AIDS are two different things. A person with HIV could be having the virus in the blood but looks perfectly normal, the only issue here is that the disease hasnt radically affected the immune system. When the immune system finally collapses, then diseases begin to show, and constant hailments as a result of the complete loss of immunity is what we call AIDS(Aquired Immune Deficiency syndrome) Your friend's fiancee may not yet be suffering, but she could have HIV not AIDS. I wonder how you got to know about her serial status? Did her ex boyfriend die of the disease? Even then, you must confirm by testing that she actually is HIV +ve-I have known of couples whose spouces are positive but they themselves are -ve!! So before you condemn your friend for having this girl for GF, let them both go for testing, you might find that the boy is +ve and the girl whom you have already condemned is -ve!!! So Watch out and keep cool!
