For the first time, my husband and I aren’t voting for the same presidential candidate. We are officially “canceling out” each other’s vote. My husband was on the fence for a while, but after yesterday’s primary elections, he made a decision. And it’s not the same as mine.

I remember my grandma telling me that my grandpa didn’t speak to her for a week after she voted for John F. Kennedy instead of Richard Nixon in the 1960 election. She said she planned to vote for Nixon, but when she was alone in the voting booth, she simply had to vote for a Catholic.

I can relate. I, too, must vote for my own.
