Coming with a medical background--I fully agree on disease prevention and stopping the spread of STDs. I see TOO many of my patients that not only have unprotected sex but also now have an STD--and there are STDs that can not be cured!!! Also, these are not just the young and foolish. STDs, HIV are BIG among my generation and the geriatric set.
The middle aged and senior citizens think---I can't get pregnant, he/she's a nice person, my neighbor I've known for years, fellow churchgoer, active in the community, recently widowed, etc, etc. Not so. STDs are equal opportunistic infections.
You can bet that I will definitely have a hard copy of his STDs lab work in my hands before I become intimate. And he will have my copy. It's not a matter of "Do I love him enough" or "trust him enough". It's a matter of health. And I will go into a marriage with my eyes open. I'm not an expert on what conditions constitute a valid marriage, but, I would think that withholding such information would be an issue.
Right on Chris. I think I will post a photo of my most recent lab work on here too.
It's all good.
