OK, you're both HIV negative right now. Using condoms would lessen any other risk --- but isn;t the real problem hwere, that you are engaged to marry this man, and you're scared that he could be having an affair ? If he's as scared of HIV as you are, why would he want to even think of having an ffair and running that risk ? You need lmarriage counselling / pre-marriage counselling, to gain confidence in each other, before going ahead with a marriage under these circumstances. WOuld you plan 3-monthly HIV tests for the next 30 years ?
