On their way to get married, a young 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.
When St. Peter arrives, they ask if they can get married in Heaven. St. Peter said, “I don’t know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out.”
The couple sit and wait. Months go by. Eventually, they began to wonder what will happen if a heavenly marriage doesn't work out. Could they get a divorce in Heaven?
Finally, St. Peter returns, looking somewhat bedraggled. “Yes,” he informs the couple, “you can get married in Heaven.”
“Great!” they reply. “But we were just wondering: What if things don’t work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?”
Red-faced, St. Peter slams his clipboard onto the ground.
“What’s wrong?” asks the 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?"
