I really have long wondered this, but was afraid to ask. Why in the world would an omnipotent being, which created all time and space, care in the slightest if two of its creations want to have sex? Why would it create something that wonderful and then forbid it unless the people involved undergo a ceremony first. Why would the Creator care about human ceremonies like marriage at all?

Of course, I have my own opinions about it, and about religion in general, which are probably already apparent. But I'm asking not to start an argument, but because I genuinely don't understand the thinking behind this. I think I know how it actually started, but I'm interested in the Christian explanation.
