Does anybody remember the old show "Life Goes On"? I was just thinking about it for the first time in years and I remembered a question I ALWAYS wondered about it.

The oldest daughter (I believe her name is Paige) has a boyfriend who is HIV-positive.  They want to have sex but everybody freaks out because she'll contract HIV too.  She says she doesn't care because she loves him, so they do and I don't know if she gets the virus or not (although she probably would have).

What I don't understand is, why did they need to have unprotected sex? Couldn't they have used a condom and prevented the spread of disease?  Or am I wrong in believing that condoms protect against HIV?

On that same note... if you love somebody that you know for a fact is HIV-positive or potentially even full-blown AIDS... perhaps they develop the disease after you are married. Would you continue to sleep with them (or start, if you never have before), or would you forego pleasure for safety?
