Eight days later had a very bad break out of herpes. My first thought was my wife had sex with someone while I was gone, because I knew I hadn't. My wife said she had one sexual partner before we got married, but they always used condoms. She said before they had intercourse they would grind on each other without the condom on. Her thoughts is that she must have got the herpes that way. My question if thats possible, then why would I not have caught it sooner in our marriage from her? My wife has never had a herpes break out that she's knows of.
