Getting Married In Heaven

n their way to get married, a young couple is involved in a fatal car accident. The lovebirds find themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven.

While waiting, they begin to wonder if they could they possibly get married in Heaven, and when Saint Peter showed up, they asked him. Saint Peter said, "Well, I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out," and he left.

The couple sat and waited for an answer for a couple of months. While they waited, they discussed that IF they were allowed to get married in Heaven, SHOULD they get married - what with the eternal aspect of it all. "What if it doesn't work?" they wondered, "Are we stuck together forever?"

After yet another month, St. Peter finally returned looking some what bedraggled. "Yes," he informed the couple, "You CAN get married in Heaven." "Great!" said the couple, "but we were just wondering. What if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?"

St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard onto the ground. "What's wrong?" asked the frightened couple. "OH, COME ON!!" Saint Peter shouted, "It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have ANY idea how long it'll take me to find a lawyer?!"
