This story of a newlywed farmer getting a visit from his tough mother-in-law will make you roar in laughter.

The hilarious tale goes…

A newlywed farmer and his wife were apprehensive over an impending visit by her mother. As soon as she arrived, the farmer's mother-in-law immediately demanded an inspection of the place.

The farmer had genuinely tried to be friendly to his mother-in-law, as he wanted to have a harmonious relationship between them. He wanted a friendly, non-antagonistic relationship. But his efforts were fruitless.

His mother-in-law kept nagging them at every opportunity, demanding changes, offering unwanted advice, and generally making life unbearable to the farmer and his new bride.

While they were walking through the barn, during the forced inspection, the farmer's mule suddenly reared up and kicked the mother-in-law in the head. She was killed instantly. It was a shock to all no matter their feelings toward her demanding ways.

At the funeral service a few days later, the farmer stood near the casket and greeted folks as they walked by. The pastor noticed that whenever a woman would whisper something to the farmer, he would nod his head yes and say something. Whenever a man walked by and whispered to the farmer, however, he would shake his head no and mumble a reply.


Very curious as to this bizarre behavior, the pastor later asked the farmer what that was all about.

The farmer replied, "The women would say, 'What a terrible tragedy' and I would nod my head and say, 'Yes, it was.' The men would then ask, 'Can I borrow that mule?' and I would shake my head and say, 'Can’t. It's all booked up for a year.'"

When St. Peter finally shows up, they anxiously ask him if they can get married in heaven. They can wait to seal their love even in the afterlife.

St. Peter says, "I don't know, this is the first time anyone has ever asked. Let me go find out.”

The couple waited for a couple of months and begin to wonder if they really should get married in Heaven.

"What if it doesn't work out?" they wonder. "Are we stuck together forever?"

After another month, St. Peter finally shows up. "Yes," 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 Heaven?"

Angry, St. Peter slams his clipboard onto the ground.

"What's wrong?" exclaims the frightened couple.

"Geez!" 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?"
