HIV Test for husband and wife

Hi
Do you recommend an hiv test must be taken once in 5 years eventhough you have sex only with your wife and also your wife has sex only with you and both are negative say 4 years back. Both of us trust each other as we have married for last 10 years and my wife had hiv test during her pregnancy (4 years back).
Whether hiv test should be part of routine health checkup or not. My wife says she does not need hiv test as its waste of money. I trust my wife fully and I know she cannot get hiv from sexual routes at all but I have always a questions what about non sexual risk which we never even think of (eg going to a dentist/hospital/bruises etc). Since we are from India I always test every 2 years  but wife says I am wasting money. I know hiv is difficult to get but do you think we should get a test like 2 years or 5 years or 10 years
Waiting for you answer. Thanks
