90-Year Old ex-Senator to Marry the Man of His Dreams

Written by | Lifestyle

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.
