Former US Senator Wofford to marry man 50 years his junior

NEW YORK (AP) – Former U.S. Sen. Harris Wofford talks tenderly of his two loves – his late wife Clare and his soon-to-be spouse Matthew Charlton – in a New York Times opinion piece.

The 90-year-old Pennsylvania statesman says in the Sunday piece (http://nyti.ms/1SrVeEh ) it’s been his good fortune to pair love with a best friend twice in life. He says “too often, our society seeks to label people by pinning them on the wall – straight, gay or in between.”

Wofford reflects on his life with his wife of 48 years – they had three children – and how he unexpectedly fell in love with Charlton five years after her death.

The former adviser to President John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. says he and the 40-year-old Charlton plan to marry April 30.
