yes you can marry her.but there is problem.the question is how much is she effected from this disease.that is known by CD4 marker.if it is higher then if u marry and having sex with her with out condom then the disease'll transmit to u.and the baby will be effected by mode of delivery.if there is normal delivery the chance of transmisson is more.

Marriage is sumthing that you and your gf need to decide on.There is no medical ban.But if you want kids with her you need to be aware of getting infected yourself and also having kids who will be HIV positive.This is something you need to discuss with your gf and get some counselling.Its a life changing decision.
