On their way to getting married, a young Catholic 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 if they could possibly get married in Heaven.
When St. Peter arrived, they asked him. St. Peter said: I don’t know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go and find out.
The couple sat and waited for an answer for a couple of months. While they waited, they discussed the pros and cons. 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? Are we stuck in Heaven together forever?
Another month passed and 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 on the ground.
What’s wrong, asked the frightened couple.
OH COME ON! St. Peter shouted. It took me 3 months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it will take to find a lawyer?
