I was diagnosed with HIV by my ex-boyfriend. He knew that he had HIV when we had unprotected sex but he didn't say anything to me. I found out later on about his status and that he was married and had a lot of girlfriends, and because of him being selfish and arrogant he still continues to spread the disease.

A few months back, my husband was so sick, he was admitted to the hospital. Later, we've come to find out that he's HIV positive. We've been married for 12 years. I'm still HIV negative. I don't understand how this is possible.
