"Its up to BOTH of them to remain faithful" What perfect world are you living in? Men have always cheated since the beginning of time (women have to, by the way). Only now the the consequences can be deadly. The rules have changed. You're saying "since it can now be deadly, you men had better stop cheating!" Well get REAL. There's always the possibility you're going to be cheated on. Therefore there's always the possibility you're going to be infected. You women have GOT to protect yourselves. So you're in a terrific, loving, trusting relationship. Are you willing to stake your life on it? You might be if you're allowing your partner to place his body fluid in you. This is where YOU come in and DEMAND they use condoms.
