Marrying and Divorcing in Heaven

It seems that a devout, good 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 get married, saying that it was what they had hoped
for in life, and they still desired wedded union.

He thought about it and agreed, 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 ceremony.

So things went on, for thirty years or so, but they determined, in this time,
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 will never get a lawyer!
