On their way to get married, a young couple.....
On their way to get married, a young couple was
involved in a fatal car accident. The couple found
themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting
for St. Peter to process them into Heaven.
While waiting, they began to wonder: Could they
possibly get married in Heaven? When St. Peter showed
up, they asked him. St. Peter said, "I don't know.
This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go
find out." He left and 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 somewhat 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!!" St. Peter shouted,
"It took me three months to find a preacher up here!
Do you have any idea how long it'll take me to
find a lawyer?"
