    Good evening. Congrats on your intending union. Yes you can be married. First of all does your partner know of your status? Secondly are you on anti retroviral therapy? Transmission of the virus depends on the viral load. So you have to stay on therapy. The use of condom is recommended. And your partner should know about post exposure prophylaxis incase he gets exposed. All in all, you have to both undergo counselling with your physician. Hope this helped.
