Former Tucson Congressman Jim Kolbe plans to marry his partner of eight years on Saturday in Washington, D.C., where same-sex marriage is allowed by law.
Marriage equality is not legally recognized in Arizona.
Kolbe said he met Hector Alfonso, a teacher from Panama, at a farewell party at his home in Washington, D.C.
"We're very happy," he said. "We're very committed."
The two have talked about marrying for a long time, Kolbe said. After sorting out Alfonso's immigration status, Kolbe said the two are ready to marry.
They plan a simple ceremony at the Cosmos Club, officiated by a minister, with readings and prayers.
