welcome to health care magic
With the modern HIV treatment, you should be able to have a normal life span, New medications are developed and become available almost every year. In addition, the pipeline of new drugs looks very promising.

Hi pawan,
Hepatitis B can be transmitted by sexual intercourse during active disease, that can be assesed by mesuring HBeAg and HBV DNA if HBeAg if possitive and HBV DNA less than 8 ml/dl you should undergo treatment with pencyclovir before marrying if HBeAg is negative no need to worry but i still suggest you to use barrier meathod of contraceptive to protect your wife from getting it. and undergo frequent examination od ag/ab along with LFT
Take care
