Mandatory HIV test

The newspapers these days carry news of the HIV test being made mandatory. It means that a copy of the report would have to be submitted while marriages are being registered.

There lies a loophole here. Do the concerned officials mean to say that HIV positive people should not marry at all? Alternatively, do they mean that a marriage is only about making out - and you most definitely will inadvertently spread the virus??

We talk about reducing the number of AIDS cases - but what are we going to do about the people already infected with the HIV virus? Leave them in a quarantine where nobody marries them?
Is there nothing called companionship in a marriage?

  1. In fact HIV Positive patients must be encouraged to get intwingled into a marraige, so that they do not change partners oftenly. Let's hope their marraige becomes monogomous.
