Can I marry a HIV positive man?

A very nice man who is HIV positive just proposed to me. I love him dearly and want to know if I can marry him with his HIV status.

Aishat (by SMS)

Please go ahead and marry him. Medical advances have made it possible for HIV positive people to get married and even go on to have healthy babies. However, before you marry this gentleman, you will need to seek proper counselling from a HIV Centre at the nearest Specialist or Teaching Hospital to you. There, you and your man will be taught on the rudiments of a success marriage to a HIV positive person.
