58. Well, normal people in normal marriages include one another in major life decisions.
I realize you've said before that's not how you and your wife work, but 99% of the rest of married and otherwise life-partnered people take their spouses'/partners' health and opinions into consideration when deciding whether to do something that would greatly interfere with their day-to-day lives.

I know I'd be steamed if my life partner decided to run for president without including me in the decision, as a presidential run drags the whole family into it, whether the family wants to be in it or not.

That and there has been much speculation that if Elizabeth had wanted her husband to drop out of the race and take care of her (or, at the very least, not subject her to all of the scrutiny that a candidate's wife gets even under the best of circumstances), he would have. So, yes, in that way, it's her decision just as much as it is his.
