Husband and Wife Martyrs?

I'm confused--what does this mean for the 72 virgins? Do they each get them? Do they split them? If so, are half of them boy-toy virgins, for the wife's enjoyment?

Or do you not get virgins if you're married? Or, maybe, you get virgins if you're married, but your wife does not become a glorious martyr?

Or perhaps, the husband gets the 72 virgins and the wife--even if she is a glorious martyr--gets bupkis?

God be praised, these are hard questions.

Haven't you heard? In the afterlife, good Muslims get golden raisins, not virgins. (I'm not making this up. Really, how could I?),2763,631357,00.html
