If they get herpes, they get it. Both of you are just as much partners in keeping them from getting herpes as anything else. But if it happens, it's no one's fault. There's no one to blame. Part of your partner's accepting you is also accepting the risk of getting herpes. You take just as much responsibility as they do in keeping them safe. Of course neither of you WANT it to happen and you take every precaution for it not to, but if it happens, it happens. And I love that you care about your new partner's health.


Oh, and don't let the potential risk overshadow the fun, excitement, curiosity and beauty of your relationship. Ride that line of being careful yet not paranoid. And enjoy. :)
