Bad experiences: When he was young, fresh out of the academy, he met the love of his life, a hooker named Carl. The years of their relationship are the answer to the below question. They were together for six years before Carl was diagnosed with advanced HIV. Supposedly he contracted this during an undocumented rape. In fact, though Taavi does not know this, the man had gone back to hooking when Taavi had become too engrossed in his work to spend enough time with him. It was far too late for treatment to be highly effective, and without insurance, they could not have afforded it anyway on Taavi’s salary. They married as quickly as they could to try to get Carl covered by Taavi’s insurance, but the man passed mere days after a civil ceremony conducted in the hospital. He has never fully recovered from the loss.
