Yes: You both need to be treated. Wait two weeks. Get retested to make sure you are cured. Be safe.

Yes: Common sense if one person is treated and the other one isn't then the infection will not go away and even if someone is treated , no guarantee it is not resistent so after txment should get a followup culture.
