Melissa and Richard Washington told the brand that the key to a happy life together is something to laugh about.

“It’s not all peaches and cream, but we made it,” Richard said. “You have to have some humor in your life, and you have to forgive.”

He added to his wife, “I’m glad I wake up every morning and see you. You’ve always been there.’

Shelly and David Tsai shared a similar sentiment, adding that it’s important to “always have fun” together, and to learn how to make “sacrifices” for each other.

Tom Storey, on the other hand, said he thinks his marriage to his wife Claudia has lasted 50 years because they treat each other as equals.

“We have a 50/50 relationship. There’s no head of the household here,” he said, as Claudia interjected jokingly, “I think I’m in charge.”

Elena Lopez told Popeyes that her husband, Miguel, still makes her feel “special every day.”

‘It was young love. I haven’t really localized [what I loved about him] to this day,” she explained, before telling her husband, “I can say today that I am still in love with you. You make me feel special every day.”

He added, “You taught me a lot.”

Tom Sprangler and Ken Jones said they think the reason their relationship has worked for so long is that they never go to bed angry with each other.

“I remember saying to each other when we were very young, we wouldn’t go to bed angry. We would take the time to talk it out, and we did,” one of them said. ‘We’ve been through a lot together, a lot.’

In addition to sharing the touching video, Popeyes has also hosted several other celebrations for his 50th birthday — including bringing his beloved Cajun Rice side dish back to the menu, albeit for a limited time.

Customers will also have the chance to try a brand new delicacy in the form of the Strawberry Cheesecake Fried Pie, which was released in restaurants across the US on Tuesday.

The fried chicken favorite also offers a $6.99 special for its five-piece meal.

Popeyes’ landmark anniversary comes three years after it shot to viral fame with the launch of its now infamous fried chicken sandwich in the summer of 2019.

The sandwich received so much attention that other fast food chains, including Wendy’s, Chick-fil-A and Shake Shack, immediately started arguing on Twitter about which version of the restaurant is the best.

Popeyes’ sandwich earned even more buzz when restaurants failed to meet demand and sold out within a month, leading some customers to attack, attack employees and even sue the chain.

Outraged food fans complained via social media that they couldn’t get their hands on the menu item and begged Popeyes to replenish the stock.

In late August 2019, an irate Popeyes customer climbed through a drive-thru window before arguing with three employees when he learned the sandwich was sold out.

And Craig Barr, of East Ridge, Tennessee, has filed a $5,000 lawsuit against the fast food chain alleging false advertising” and “deceptive business practices” by the company for failing to get his hands on their famous chicken sandwich.

In early November 2019, the Popeyes sandwich was back in stores and it’s still a staple on the chain’s menu.
