Response from Dr. Aberg

The fact that you are negative has nothing to do with his status. There are many discordant couples in which one is positive and the other is negtive for various reasons. The only way to know for sure is for him to be tested. Maybe you could ask your doctor to talk with him about his risk factors and offer him to get tested. Your doctor can explain that this is really part of routine medical care and HIV testing is offered to everyone.
