At 90 years old, former Pennsylvania Sen. Harris Wofford has announced he's marrying a man 20 years after the death of his wife.
In a New York Times op-ed, Wofford explained his budding romance: "We both felt the immediate spark, and as time went on, we realized that our bond had grown into love. Other than with Clare, I had never felt love blossom this way before."
Wofford says he is set to marry Matthew Charlton, a 40-year-old man whom he met nearly 15 years ago, at the end of April. Wofford was married for nearly five decades before his wife, Clare, died in 1996 after battling acute leukemia.
