AbstractThis study explored the impact of serostatus disclosure on the spousal relationship between wives and their HIV-positive husbands who have had sex with men. A qualitative study using semi-structured interviews was conducted in Sichuan, China in 2017 with wives (n = 31) who had known their husbands' HIV-positive status. Participants were identified by local governmental and non-governmental organizations that provide routine services for people living with HIV and their family members. Qualitative data underwent a detailed content analysis. Both positive and negative impacts on the spousal relationship were expressed by wives. Six themes were identified: (1) reduced sexual activities; (2) changes in intimacy; (3) limited communication on HIV-related issues but improved communication on other topics; (4) increased instrumental support but decreased emotional support; (5) improved resilience in the spousal relationship; and (6) shared privacy management rules regarding HIV-positive status. Moreover, the acknowledgment of the husband's homosexual behavior hurt the spousal relationship more seriously than the disclosure of the husband's HIV-positive status, and irremediable marriages were observed among wives who knew both. Disclosure of HIV-positive status had a great impact on the spousal relationship, though such impact varied across individuals.
