Rep. G.K. Butterfield's (D-N.C.) district is best known as the birthplace of Pepsi. But it took a former Coca-Cola bottling worker to put the Goldsboro district in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Butterfield's constituent, Herbert Fisher, and his wife, Zelmyra, hold the record for having been married longer (86 years) than any living couple in the world.

Their achievement prompted the lawmaker to take to the House floor on Friday to congratulate them on the anniversary of nearly nine decades of wedded bliss.

Married in 1924, Herbert Fisher will turn 105 next month, while Zelmyra is a sprightly 102. As Butterfield pointed out, during their first year of marriage, bread cost nine cents a loaf, and the Ford Model T was the country's best selling (and practically only) automobile.

Butterfield also shared a little piece of marital advice from the couple, which they had posted on Twitter (yes, Twitter!) this past Valentine's Day: "Respect, support and communicate with each other. Be faithful, honest and true. Love each other with all of your heart."
