If a guy has HPV (genital warts) he cannot get married in order to avoid transmitting of the virus to his lover? Ex: She is above 26 years old.

In brief: Doesn't stop wedding

People with contagious diseases get married, everywhere, everyday.
It does create a dilemma, as the uninfected spouse doesn't want to catch the infection. First, genital HPV viruses are common, and many people don't know they have them. Therefore, one can get vaccinated (self-pay if no insurance). One can get warts treated to remove them. We can't remove HPV-infected cells that we can't see, yet.
