We chose not to be sexually active until we're married, so I know that I do not have HPV. Yes, he does have genital warts, which comes along with the virus.
My question is - How can I prevent getting HPV? I know there is gardasil, which I am getting in a few weeks, does that prevent me from getting the virus? And is there anything that I can take (such as gardasil) from contracting the genital warts? Will it ever go away, or will the warts ALWAYS be there? I read online for men with HPV, the virus usually clears up in about 2 years.
Also - We do want kids together, so if we have sex when he doesn't have an outbreak, will that guarantee I won't get GW?
Please no bashing, he is my other half, I am not just going to up and run because of this.

The vaccine only protects certain types of HPV(and has some pretty nasty side affects), yes hpv can clear up on it's own over time but there is no cure for it. Your other half can get medicine to help clear up break outs and/or have them removed. There really are a few options out there, you and he should go and talk to your family Dr. to see what treatments would be best for the 2 of you.
