HPV VIRUS

I have been married for 28 years and have never had an extra-marital affair. I have also been going for annual pap smears for the past 30 years and have never had anything come back abnormal. 6 months ago I tested positive for the HPV virus. Is it possible for this virus to lie dormant for 30 odd years or should I be checking up on my husband' s behaviour outside the marriage.

Many thanks

It is possible for the virus to be dormant for a long time.
