On their way to the church to get married, a young Catholic couple were
involved in a fatal car accident.
Being good Catholics the young 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
When St. Peter finally showed up, they asked him. St Peter said "I don't
This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out" and he leaves
them sitting at the Gate.
After three months, St Peter finally returns, looking somewhat bedraggled.
"Yes" he informs the couple "you can get married in Heaven".
"Great!" said the couple "But we were just wondering, what if things don't
Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?"
"You must be bloody joking" says St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slamming
his clipboard on the ground.
"What's wrong?" asked the frightened couple".
"OH, COME ON!" St. 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?"
