The bride of Christ theme is in several locales in the NT. The husband and wife passages of Ephesians 5 spring immediatwely to mind. The issue here is that wife is not bride, although it is close. Also the context in the fragment is about an individual. Still that could simply be using an individual to represent a group. Without more context in the fragment we just cannot know.
