Technically, no, it is not possible to kiss with certainty ever again. Valtrex does not completely prevent transmission. The virus still "sheds" and is contagious even while you are taking Valtrex suppressively.
As for your partner, yes, it is possible that he did not know he was infected. Some people have such minor symptoms, or even no symptoms at all, so they do not realize that they are infected. Assymptomatic shedding has been scientifically proven and is a real phenomenon. So yes, it is very possible that he infected you in this way. Good luck.
