Why did John & Yoko get married in Gibraltar?

a) because the rock represented their love etc? 
b) because they forgot their passports?

Was John (Winston) Lennon deliberately teasing the Spanish by making Gibraltar 'near Spain'? Probably not. The song certainly upset General Franco, however. He promptly banned the The Ballad of John & Yoko across the jurisdiction of the territory he did control.
