A COUPLE are driving to a church to get married, but on the way, they get into a car accident and die. When they arrive in heaven, they see St Peter at the gate. They ask him if he could arrange it so they could marry in heaven. St Peter tells them he’ll do his best.
Three months pass by and the couple hear nothing. They bump into St Peter and ask him about the marriage. He says: “I’m still working on it.”
Two years pass by and no marriage. St Peter again assures them that he’s still working on it.
Finally, after 20 long years, St Peter comes running up to the couple with a priest in tow, and tells them it’s time for their wedding.
So the couple marry and live happily for a while, but eventually they go and find St Peter and tell him things are not working out, and they now want to get a divorce.
“Can you arrange it for us?” they ask.
“Are you kidding?” St Peter replies. “It took me 20 years to find a priest up here – how long do you think it’s gonna take to find you a lawyer?”
