A very sad story recently went viral and it has stirred quite a number of reactions. It so happened that a lab scientist revealed that a couple that she had been following up for a while came to her to do a test one week to their wedding. The result of the test was shocking in all respect.
It was discovered that the bride-to-be was HIV positive. No doubt, discovering that a person is infected with the virus is not another way of saying his or her life has ended.
But in this particular situation, the bride-to-be's ailing health condition was only discovered one week to her wedding with her sweetheart.
Now, dealing with this news, and then, planning a wedding - that is if there is still a marriage ceremony to plan - can be very traumatic.
Knowing the shattering effect of this news, the lab scientist felt really sorry for them. Hence, she took to sharing this story.
She also advised couples to go for medical tests and check their results long before a wedding is even planned as knowing about any mishap just a week to a planning union is not very ideal.

Many people have reacted to this post in quite expected ways. See some of the reactions below:
hiv.aids.advice.page: "There is nothing to be sad about. If you allow love to concur. HIV is no more the death sentence it use to be. With ARV the bride will have low viral load and won’t be able to even pass the virus to the husband and she won’t die not even in 50 years time. People need more education about HIV."
nikky248: "Now the test of true love comes into play."
ngwajanengweji: "Most people lack knowledge abt HIV if they could learn and stop living in 1980's and open their minds to education."
_.rubie__: "They can still get married tho."
uzoukwucynthia: "They can go ahead with d wedding if they want to. Treatment is free and available."
