A man spent all his life alone, finding no love.
At age 96, he dies and goes to heaven.
At the same time, a woman spent all her life alone, finding no love.
At age 102, she dies and goes to heaven.
As chance has it, they both meet at the heavenly library, discovering they both have a deep love for books, they start talking and amazingly enough, after a lifetime of unhappiness, fall in love.
They walk up to God and ask to be married.
“Give me some time,” Says God, “and I’ll get back to you.
This is quite extraordinary.” Four years pass, and after the couple waited patiently, God finally tells the man and woman that he can have them married.
A few centuries pass and the man and woman fall out of love.
They approach God once more and this time they ask, sadly, for a divorce.
God responds: “It took me four years to find a priest in this place. How long do you think it’ll take me to find a lawyer?!”
