He served in JFK’s cabinet. He worked with the late Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. And now, two decades after losing his wife to leukemia, Harris Wofford is getting married — to a man.
Wofford, who was married for 48 years to his wife and served as a Pennsylvania U.S. senator from 1991-1995, will marry Matthew Charlton, 40 in a ceremony this Saturday. The pair met on a Florida beach 15 years ago and first became friends before, in Wofford’s words, “we realized that our bond had grown into love. Other than with Clare, I had never felt love blossom this way before.”
We at Metroscope who can be somewhat mushy when it comes to fairy tale romances, wish them all the best.
