My husband is HIV-positive while I'm negative, but our love remains strong

What you need to know:

  • Jackline was barely two weeks’ old in the marriage but they had not been intimate yet.
  • She found a tin of ARVs, which her husband had taken the previous day and forgot to hide. 
  • This is when she found out that her husband-to-be was HIV-positive. 


Had it not been for her full bladder, which coincided with her thirst at 2.30am, her husband’s condition could have been a mystery to her for some time.
