Marriage in Heaven

On their way to a justice of the peace to get married, a couple have a fatal
car accident.  The couple is sitting outside heaven's gate waiting on St.
Peter to do an intake.  While waiting, they wonder if they could possibly
get married in Heaven.  St. Peter finally shows up and they ask
him.  St. Peter says, "I don't know, this is the first time anyone has ever
asked.  Let me go find out," and he leaves.
The couple sits for a couple of months and begins to wonder if they really
should get married in Heaven, what with the eternal aspect of it all. "What
if it doesn't work out?" they wonder, "Are we stuck together forever?"
St. Peter returns after yet another month, looking somewhat bedraggled. He
informs the couple, "You can get married in Heaven."  "Great," says the
couple, "but what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in

St. Peter, red-faced, slams his clipboard onto the ground.  "What's wrong?"
exclaims the frightened couple.  "Come on!" St. Peter exclaims, "It took me
three months to find a priest up here!  Do you have any idea how long it's 
going to take for me to find a lawyer!?
