Wife of 10 years has HSV2. I dont

Recommended Posts



my wife recently had an outbreak. She is 48. She said she thought she had herpes when she was 17 (one sore) but has not an an outbreak since. 

We have been together for 12 years and never used protection. 

Is it possible that I would not have contracted herpes in all that time?

It’s for sure possible. About half of couples in your situation do not pass the virus.

a question I have for dedicated couples though is what does your status matter? What would you want to be different about your life?
