Did you and your husband get an STD test before getting married?

Why or why not? In my opinion it's important because many STD's show zero symptoms and you don't want to be surprised one doctor's visit with a positive test once you are already married. Even if you have already had unprotected sex with the person it's important because if you do have something you can get it cured as soon as possible. They used to be mandatory in my state but not anymore. I told my husband(fiance at the time) that until we both went to the doctor and came back with a clean bill of health that the walk down the aisle would wait. Regardless if it was positive or negative I would have married him but it was very important to us to know if anything was up.

  • Absolutely. When things became serious, I made it clear that he would have to show me current STD labs before he was allowed to touch me:)

    Homey don't play that. LOL!

  • Nope, we would have already given it to each other anyway.

    BTW, he already has an STD that he told me about before we ever did anything.

  • I got no tests done but knew I was clean/safe.

    We did not have sex til our wedding night and he DID get tested before we did the deed. He just felt it was important... he'd always been WEIRD about sex.... I was only the 3rd partner he has ever had. Overly disease paranoid after working as a truck driver for a lot of years and friends/co workers ending up with problems from "lot lizards"
