Girl marries HIV positive man for love

It is said love knows no bounds, and a girl from Narayangarh in Chitwan district

has proved it right by tying the nuptial cord with a HIV positive man, much to

everyone's surprise.

Sujata Rai, 23, married Samir Chettri, a 34-year-old HIV positive man from

Thapathali in Kathmandu in a private ceremony four months ago. But the couple

disclosed about their marriage only recently after their fears of reprisal from

the society went away with the tremendous love and support they received from

their families.

" People affected with HIV/AIDS must not be ignored or neglected by viewing them

as a social stigma. Everyone should respect HIV infected people's right to be

loved as they need care and affection just like any of us, " Sujata said, adding

that the biased society should learn a lesson from their exemplary marriage.

" I had though that I had no other option left than wait for death without

anyone's love in my life, " a jubiliant Samir said, " but now my dream of a happy

conjugal life has come true. "

Initially the couple faced some sort of resistance from their family members

when they told them about their marriage plans, but looking at their love for

each other their families could do nothing but provide a positive nod for the


A simple conversation between the two a year ago had planted the seed of love

between the two which finally culminated in marriage four months ago, making it

probably the first of its kind of marriage in the country.

Now that they are finally married, what are their future plans? " We would not

establish physical relationship, but we would try to have a test-tube baby, "

the couple said.
