On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple is involved in a fatal
car accident. The couple find themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates
waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven.
While waiting, they begin 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 find out."
The couple sat and waited for an answer. Two months passed and the couple
was still waiting. As 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, slams his clipboard onto the ground.
"What's wrong?" asked the frightened couple.
"OH, COME ON!" St. Peter shouts, "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?!
