    Is it right in sight of God to go testing HIV before marriage with your partner?

    I have not found the Bible asks so, but in these rules depends between both partners, but I think you should check the health of both partners before marriage, so that they can know the true condition of his health, and minimize disease.
    Similarly with HIV disease, HIV disease already has a drug and handling well. For three months ago my employees a Muslim man new year with my work then admitted that he had such a disease, contact inveksi by injection, so I was surprised and shocked, but as Christians is an opportunity to serve that person. So I explained to him that should continue to perform medical tests, keep health fit, always ready with these medications, it is still guided and must be transformed from mundane style, keeping the body is the temple of God, so that from now people have started participating worship prayer meeting ,,,, sorry answers have been widened but this testimony related to your inquiry ..

    Everyone should get tested for HIV,people lie,even people you think you know. I just went thru both tests recently. Why? My Ex husband lied to me. I am HIV free. Thank You Jesus!! If/when I get married again my future husband will have to be tested AND provide verifiable proof. Period.

    INNOCENT165> "Is it right in sight of God to go testing HIV before marriage with your partner?"

    There's nothing wrong with that...at all. That's like asking "Is it right in the sight of God to take reasonable precautions before doing something?" Why would taking reasonable precautions be wrong? That's like asking "Is it right in the sight of God to wear a seatbelt and drive my car responsibly?" It's a non-issue.

    NITA918> "the Bible doesn't ask so"

    Your advice to minimize diseases and so on is what's expected from reasonable people, I'd assume. There're many things the Bible doesn't say. It doesn't say that you should avoid running around with scissors, knives, or other sharp objects in your hands. It doesn't say you avoid drinking house cleaning chemicals, and so on... God gave people a brain and there's an expectation that people will develop and apply critical thinking skills for such things.

    A good rule of thumb people can use as a starting point is: Am I about to violate God's moral law?

    People should re-read the 10 Commandments in their Bible again if they have doubts or questions for some reason.

    God does not expect people to "check their brains at the door" (that'd be silly, since God gave us our brains in the first place...) and do things that might not be smart. Putting your safety at risk by not taking reasonable and appropriate precautions is not smart. Even King David and his men always remembered to take their swords before marching into battle...

    If both are not virgins anymore then it would be good to do so. Or if you've been exposed to hiv cases, especially for healthcare providers, then do it. I don't think it will displease God if you do so. It will only displease Him if you're dishonest towards your partner.

    Nowhere in the bible we can find a text or verse requiring us to undergo an HIV test before entering into marriage. But whether it is right or not in the sight of God?.. Yes, it is, especially if you know and have experienced sex with men or women before whom you are not sure of their health conditions. If you really love and care about your future partner, then submit yourself for an HIV test secretly so as to protect your future partner. Afterall, love is not just about satisfying yourself with what you want for your own happiness, but its more of giving for someone elses happiness. That's what God taught us about showing love to others and  much more to our future partner.  How can your partner be happy if after marriage she or he will find out to be HIV positive? So submitting yourself into an HIV test before getting engaged or marriaged is a responsible action.

    Love sees no wrong or ill health or imperfection say's the bible.

    In my opinion HIV status should be checked , so that the Hiv negative party involved in the relationship can decide whether his or her love is strong enough to continue with the relationship or not, because he or she can prepare for the challenges ahead.

    I have seen HIV positive Negatives marrying HIV positive and they have kids in my country, they come on air always to educate public . They lady never got infected because there is a doctor monitoring their conception therapy. They live happily. Tell your partner the truth about any ill end and let the partner decide, is a test of true love , trust and commitment.

    I will not break a relationship because my partner has a disease, it shows it was never true love because many break ups and divorce are not as a result of diseases. Is all about trust and commitment .

    That would be a smart move, we have to use wisdom. God calls fool but he does not keep them. For peace sake each partner should do a test whether your a virgin or not, take that test. Thats my view anyways.
