A former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania announced this past weekend that, at age 90, he is getting re-married — this time to a man.

In an op-ed in the New York Times April 24, Harris Wofford announced he was marrying his partner of 15 years, Matthew Charlton, next week. Wofford's wife, with whom he had three children, died in 1996.

Wofford stopped short of "coming out" as gay or bisexual.

"I don't categorize myself based on the gender of those I love," he wrote. "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 Democrat, served as U.S. Senator from 1991-95. He was Secretary of Labor and Industry under former Gov. Robert Casey from 1987-91 and previously was president of Bryn Mawr College from 1970-78.
