Joke: Young Couple Ask St Peter a Difficult Question in Heaven
A young couple died on the way to their wedding and asked St. Peter a forbidden question in Heaven.
On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple was involved in a fatal automobile accident. The cause of the crash has not been determined. The lovebirds, however, passed away at the scene.
There was an immediate outpouring of grief from the community, as family members spoke about their loss.
Meanwhile, the couple found themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven.
While waiting, they began to wonder if they could possibly get married in Heaven. It seemed fair and reasonable as they died only a couple of hours before tying the knot back on Earth.
When St. Peter arrived, they asked him. St. Peter said, "I don't know. This is the first time anyone has had such an unusual request. Let me go find out," and he left.
The couple sat and waited for an answer. St. Peter was taking too long, though. One day went by, then a week, and then two months.
While they waited, they discussed the pros and cons of their decision. If they were allowed to get married in Heaven, should they get married, what about the eternal aspect of it all? What if it doesn't work? Would they be stuck in Heaven together forever? They wanted to clarify every single aspect before saying "I do."
Another month passed. St. Peter finally returned, looking somewhat bedraggled.
"Yes," he informed the couple, "Turns out that 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, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard on the ground.
"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 to find a lawyer?"
