I AM IN THE SAME SITUATION AS YOU. MY EX HUSBAND IS HIV POSITIVE AND NOW HAS VISITATION EVERY OTHER WEEKEND. I HAVE READ ALL I CAN ABOUT EXPOSURE. I JUST WANTED YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU ARENT IN THIS BOAT ALONE. MY CHILDREN ARE 6 AND 11. I HAVE DEBATED ON WETHER TO TELL MY 11 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER. PART OF ME THINKS SHE SHOULD KNOW BUT THE OTHER PART DOESNT WANT TO ADD PAIN TO AN ALREADY BAD SITUATION. ANY THOUGHTS ON THIS? I ALSO AM NOT SURE WHAT THE LAWS ARE ABOUT ME TELLING HER AFTER WE ARE DIVORCED.
