Hepatitis B & Marriage

Hello Everyone,

I am engaged with a girl and my marriage will be on Jan 2022, I am a hep b carrier. I came to know from my fiancé that she has taken recently the required vaccines for hep b since she is working in a hospital.

My question is- Since she is very well protected from hep b virus and immune as well do I need to inform her about my condition ? does it create unnecessary tension and worries for her and her family ?

Kindly guide

As per me, you must inform to her about your status.  I am sure she will understand it.  It is depend on her to tell to family or not. Marriages are based on trust. As she is in a hospital. She would be aware of what hep b and its pro and cons. hiding thing is same as lie.

Thanks for your revert, my concern here is its an arranged marriage and in a very conservative society people may not accept the information we required to....if we inform her and her response is to not to go-ahead with marriage is of a big worry, I don't know what to do...
Not informing her is a bad and selfish way to start a marriage.  How would you be if the shoe was on the other foot.  If she had herpes or hepatitis b c or even hiv, how would you feel if she kept it a secret.  

Dude if she leaves you, then you’re marrying a woman that does not love you.  I get it. With hep b and if you tell everyone you date, it ll most likely be over and just seems hopeless.  But it’s the hand god dealt you.  It sucks.  But if she finds out it over anyways.

But you know best.

Did you keep your hepatitis b a secret before marriage?  Not knowing you have it is one thing.  But knowing you have it and not telling your partner is deceiving and wrong

Do only one thing, immunise your partner with 3 shots at 1 month interva apart before marriage or getting sexually involved. This way you can prevent yourself from doing sin.

Right…do what everyone suggest.  Keep your hepatitis a secret from your wife.  Best way to start a marriage is being shameful of your hepatitis, lying to your future wife and her family, all for your selfish reasons.

I m sure you are going to go through with it and not tell her, no matter what people advise you on, so do you. I just feel real sorry for her that she is not marrying an honest person, who hides his hepatitis b from her.  

You are truly a piece of work.  This is the exactly way STI/STDs, such as hepatitis, hiv, etc gets spread to other people.  People who knowingly have it, not telling other people who they are having relationships with.
