Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.
– Revelation 19:7 (NIV)
It may be hard for men to relate to being a bride, but Christ does not take on just one person to be his wife; Jesus has chosen a multitude of men and women (the church) as his beloved. This means that we are destined for a spiritual and emotional bond that will last for eternity. That is something that any person could relate to, and should cause all of us to serve each other well as we get ready for that final day.
