In Sickness and In Health

It depends on how they got the infection. If someone cheats and brings herpes into the relationship well, that would take a lot of counseling I would think for anyone to be able to forgive and stay together.

If it is a scenerio where your spouse was asymptomatic and only recently found out (and that can happen even years after being infected) then, I think it would be cold to walk away from the relationship. It's that kind of thinking that makes this non-life-threatening disease so devastating to sufferers: The idea that they will be shunned not only by society but loved ones, as well.

There are very workable ways to safeguard a partner who does not have herpes. Good luck.
