In brief: Maybe, maybe not

70% of people contract genital herpes when the partner does not have an outbreak.
Taking antiviral meds will help to reduce the chance of passing it to your partner. As to when the other partner might have an outbreak, that is variable and when an outbreak occurs depends on may factors, such as stress and your immune system.
