My husband, Deon, and I are a serodifferent couple, which means that one of us is living with HIV and the other isn’t… After my husband disclosed his status to me, I did some research to find out what my risk would be if we had condomless sex.
He says that if it weren’t for Facebook, or for him becoming HIV positive, we never would have met, so maybe HIV was a blessing in his life.

My husband’s (then-boyfriend’s) HIV diagnosis came completely by surprise… It took several months of trying, but we finally were able to conceive a baby on our own – no special interventions needed.
“Oh, that’s it, I’m not going to have kids, and no normal person is going to want to be with me, because, who is going to want to be with somebody that has a contractible sexually transmitted disease.”
My mind raced, as I tried to digest the news of my husband being diagnosed with HIV.
