If you were not married she could be charged with assault and battery as she is passing on a sexually transmitted disease to hurt the other partner. However in most married situations the "victim" spouse can sue the other for interspousal infliction of sexually transmitted disease if the "victim" spouse becomes affected, most end up divorced and obtain compensation this way for their treatments. It is also possible to obtain an annulment if she had this condition before marriage (under the grounds of concealing a venereal disease).
