Hello "hurtingheart",
I'm so sorry to hear of your delima. I can only imagine how hurt and confused you are right now. My husband is HIV+ as well. We just found out the end of January. So far I am negative. Like yourself, I love my husband dearly and till this day I couldn't imagine leaving him...especially now.

However, I wonder how I would feel if he did not tell me right away. I would probably be very angry and question his love for me. Because, when you love someone you try to protect them. The problem here is not that he is HIV+, but that he exposed you for so many years and like you said, took the choice out of your hands.

I am not type to give advice on whether one should leave or stay with their spouse...but I would definitely say get counceling at the least. It is reasonable to believe that he was just that afraid of how you would react and potentialy losing you that he made the wrong decision to not inform you. He obviously hasn't completly delt with his diagnosis and you could probably use the third party to help you work through this to figure out what is best for you. Good luck to the both of you.
