What does this mean?
he has hbv

she infect her husband?
yes but if husband is not immune suppressed by drugs or unhealthy life he will clear hbv.it makes sense to check if he already got hbv and if not get vaccine asap

will she survive long in this earth?
as long as she monitors liver by fibroscan and try to clear hbv by tenofovir and following interferon add-on when hbvdna undetactable, yes
hbv makes also no direct damage to the body so most of patients get no damage from it.it is important to monitor because about 5% of infected get cirrhosis or liver cancer especially after 50yo

Is the disease dangerous?
only if you dont know you have it because it has no symptoms until you dye.if you know and monitor it makes absolutely nothing
