We Have Been Married For 2 1/2 Years Now And She Has Not Been Infected

After being in a 5 year relationship I stayed single for quite some time. I did not go looking for a new partner. But a girl I worked with seemed interested. I was actually quite apprehensive because I did not want to get my heart broken…. of course. I told her that I wanted nothing to do with it unless it was for forever, and she was ok with that.

3 or 4 months later I had an outbreak and was diagnosed with genital herpes. I was horribly devastated. It was a HUGE deal to me because I felt tainted or like damaged goods. The most amazing thing happened. She acted as if it was no big deal at all. We avoid contact during an outbreak and she has not been infected….as far as we know. We have been married for 2 1/2 years now h and our baby boy is going to be 1 next month. So, I’m not sure if I was just one of the lucky ones or why this worked out as well as it did. (I’m sure having such an amazing wife had something to do with it) I expected a much different reaction.
