When in Rome, do as the the Roman do. Customs differ drastically between cities and countries, and it always takes some time to adjust after moving somewhere else. This young couple got to experience this first-hand – in a hilarious way!
On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple is involved in a fatal car accident. They are a bit upset at passing away, but happy to be together in the afterlife. The couple find themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven.
While waiting, they begin to wonder: Could they possibly get married in Heaven? When St. Peter showed up, they asked him.
St. Peter said, ”I don’t know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out,” and left.
The couple sat and waited, and waited. Two months pass, and the couple are still waiting. While waiting, they began to wonder what would happen if things between them wouldn’t work out; could you get a divorce in heaven?
After yet another month, St. Peter finally returned, looking somewhat bedraggled.
”Yes,” he informed the couple, ”you can get married in Heaven.”
”Great!” said the couple, ”But we were just wondering, what if things don’t work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?”
St. Peter dropped his clipboard, stamped his feet and threw up his hands in frustration.
”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?”
