Getting Married in Heaven

There was a young couple, very much in love, who the night
before they were to be married, were both tragically killed
in an automobile accident. They found themselves at the pearly
gates of heaven being escorted in by St.Peter. After a couple of
weeks in heaven, the prospective groom took St. Peter aside and said,
"St. Peter, my fiancee and I are very happy to be in heaven, but we
miss very much the opportunity to have celebrated our wedding vows.

Is it possible for people in heaven to get married?"
St. Peter looked at him and said,

"I'm sorry. I've never heard of anyone in heaven wanting to get
married. I'm afraid you'll have to talk to the Lord Almighty about
that. I can get you an appointment for two weeks from Wednesday."
Come the appointed day, the couple were escorted by the guardian
angels into the presence of the Lord Almighty, where they repeat
their request.

The Lord looked at them solemnly and said, "I'll tell you what,
wait five years and if you still want to get married, come back
and we will talk about it again." Well, five years went by,
and the couple still very much wanting to get married, came back.
Again, the Lord God Almighty said, "please you must wait another
five years and then I will consider your request."

Finally, they come before the Lord God Almighty the third time,
ten years after their first request, and ask the Lord again.
This time the Lord answered, "Yes, you may marry. This Saturday
at 2:00 p.m., we will have a beautiful ceremony in the main chapel.
The reception will be on me!" The  wedding went beautifully, all the
guests thougght the bride was beautiful. Moses brought some flowers
from the Nile River Delta and Ghandi came wearinghis finest
hand-woven sari.

But then ... after the couple were married a few short months
had passed, then suddenly realized what a terrible mistake they
had committed, and just couldn't stay married to one another.

So they made another appointment to see the Lord Almighty, this time
to ask if they could get a divorce in heaven.  When the Lord heard
their request, he looked at them, and said,
"Look, it took us ten years to find a priest up here in heaven;
Do you have any idea how long it'll take to find a lawyer?"
