Sero-discordant couples around the world
      #248307 - 11/06/09 09:16 AM

I'm a 27-year old female negative pole of a 'magnetic' couple (ie. my husband is poz), living in South Africa. Between January and July 2010 I am travelling around the world and I am very keen to meet up with other couples in the same situation as me. Ironically, although I'm living in the country with one of the highest incidences of HIV, I have to date not met up with a single couple going through the same thing.

The countries I'll be visiting are THailand, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Dominican Republic, Mexico, and then I'll be spending 6 weeks in the US and Canada.

All I really want to do is chat, exchange experiences and hopefullly make some friends.

If there are any other people out there who are keen to link up, even if you're not en route, please contact me. My email is magneticmatrimony(at) and my (as yet virtually empty) blog is

Looking forward to hearing from you...

Hi there,
You are not alone here down south. There are many sero-discordant couples but as you know people are still in the wood about coming out with it or forming a social forum on this basis. I for one am pos while my lovely wife is negative and we are in the process of having a healthy baby, God's willing. What do u aim to achieve with your travel? Anyway am always around here for a chat.

I am in my 30's. I live in the states and I am poz and my wonderful husband is neg. We have 4 children (b4 I became poz). We are happy and love to talk to others who are happy as well. Sometimes I feel so alone.

HIV is a part of me, but it does not define me!!!
