“Too often, our society seeks to label people by pinning them on the wall — straight, gay or in between. Wofford, a 90-year-old Democrat, penned an op-ed in the New York , breaking the news about his upcoming nuptials with a 40-year-old man named Matthew Charlton.
“I had a half-century of marriage with a wonderful woman, and now am lucky for a second time to have found happiness.” Wofford, a father of three, wrote about how he and Charlton met at a Florida beach 15 years ago and fell in love at a time when he believed he would never remarry.
Wofford’s wife, Clare, had died in 1996 after battling acute leukemia.
“I assumed that I was too old to seek or expect another romance,” Wofford wrote. “We will join hands, vowing to be bound together: to have and to hold, for better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, until death do us part,” Wofford said.
