Bigger Picture of Marriage

I am just starting to read “From Eternity to Here” by Frank Viola. He helps the reader to think about what God’s big purpose was for creation before the Fall. He contends that God created us (the church) to be a bride for His Son Jesus.
This concept ties in with some of what I heard years ago by John Piper in his tapes about Biblical Manhood and Womanhood. He pointed out that our earthly marriages are but a reflection of the real marriage in heaven between Christ and His church.
As I ponder these concepts it raises my view of marriage and why God is so concerned about protecting it and why He hates divorce so much.
