    I contracted it 20 years after my marriage. I have never had another partner, and my husband said he did some heavy petting as a teen, but never had sex with anyone since our marriage. I don't feel I would have been able to stay outbreak-free for so many years. He has never had any symptoms, and he will be tested soon.  I had the igg test & it was a 12.  I am now on supression medication.
