Questions at the Pearly Gates

ON THEIR WAY TO THE CHURCH TO GET MARRIED, a young couple were involved in a fatal car accident. Being good Catholics, they find themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven; and while there, they begin to wonder – could they possibly get married in Heaven? When St. Peter finally showed up, they asked him, and St. Peter answered, “Honestly, I don’t know. 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, “I can get you married in Heaven.” “Great!” said the couple, “but it took you so long, we were wondering – what if things don’t work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?” “You must be bloody joking,” says St. Peter, red-faced with frustration and 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?”
