A devout, good, loving couple was about to get married, but a tragic car accident ended their lives. When they got to heaven, they asked St. Peter if he could arrange for them to be married, it was what they had hoped for in life, and they felt they would have no peace without fulfilling their plans.
St. Peter thought about it and agreed to their request, but said they would have to wait. It was almost one hundred years later when St. Peter sent for them. They were married in a simple but beautiful ceremony, among their families and the new friends they had made since their arrival in heaven.
So things went on, for thirty years or so. But, sadly, things just did not work out. The couple decided that eternity was best not spent together. They went back to St. Peter, and said, “We thought we would be happy forever, but now we believe that we have irreconcilable differences. Is there any way we can get divorced?”
“Are you kidding?” said St. Peter, “It took me a hundred years to get a priest up here to marry you. I’ll never get a lawyer!”
