Prossy Nakalema, 33, and Luke Ssemwogerere, 38, have been in a stable marriage for the last 16 years. They exchanged vows in 1993. Nakalema was 18 and Ssemwogerere was 22.
Their lives seemed normal enough and they did all the things a young couple does. In 1998, five years after they were married, Ssemwogerere started falling sick regularly. He had a persistent cough and developed a severe terrible TB illness. He was later diagnosed with the HIV virus.
