Herpes infection is a viral infection and 80% people can have herpes infection without having any symptoms.These viruses remain dormant in nerves for years together one can get recurrence of infection which is mild and unnoticeable . This explains the reason for you having a herpes infection without your husband having the same at any time during last 25 years. Hope I have answered your query.
