This is the best method i feel. It is better to get an HIV done so that we can prevent one partner getting from other partner. It is always better to get it checked before marriage.

Materialistically speaking one should get them done for every one's safety and I do not want to argue with anyone on this and I do not want to insist this on anyone too
