Marrying A HIV Patient

I have a following two questions which are connected.

1- Is it halal for a Muslim man or women to marry a Muslim man or women with HIV positive? My reason for asking is that the one who is HIV negative is putting his/her into danger of getting that HIV because as per my understanding Islam doesn't encourage to hurt yourself.

لاعلاج مریض کی مصنوعی زندگی

کسی مریض کے بارے میں اگر یہ اندازہ ہو جائے کہ اس کا علاج ناممکن ہے ، تو اس صورت میں ہماری شریعت ہمیں کیا رہنمائی دیتی ہے؟ کیا جب تک اس کی طبعی موت واقع نہ ہو، اسے مصنوعی آلات کے ذریعے سے زندہ رکھا جائے یا دواؤں کے ذریعے سے از خود موت کے حوالے کر دیا جائے؟
