SeaSon saidWhy should marriage be conditional on someone's health? That seems incredibly unfair to the millions of people who already have STDs, HIV, etc.
Are they supposed to stay single for life?
I think the point that REDBULL is trying to make is that an unknown illness will strain the relationship socially and economically. So it should be part of the decison process of marriage. Especially in the times we live in. So REDBULL are you going to start a PAC organization and start a campaign across the US to get State legislator's to introduce your draft of the blood test marriage law?
that is basically the point I was making. I dont think anyone should be denied the license after the blood test. It just seems to me you always here of how much it is costing the govt, insurance companies and etc for healthcare for all these issues but no one is putting anything in order to help prevent this stuff or to just let people know they may have something.
As I am learning alot of people dont get tested because they dont want to know. Is it a personal obligation to get tested and be responsible? Yes!! Do people do it? No. because they are scared. They would rather not know.
Furthermore the more people know their status the more we learn about the disease and can treat it even more effectively. I am just trying to think of innocent parties that will be subjected to this unknowingly, even though I know it is up to them to protect themselves. It just seems foolish to not require this.
And yes to answer your question about am I evenutally gonna do something about stuff like this. I have just recently found out about being poz. I am having some health issues, but hopefully in the next few weeks it will be cleared up, I will be on meds and be alot better. Once I get myself straightened out I do want to get involved and use this to educate others. If I can do something to prevent one person from getting this, it will be worth it to me.
