St. Teresa of Avila notes the Spiritual Marriage occurs in the "Seventh Mansions". "Here at last the soul reaches the Spiritual Marriage. Here dwells the King—“it may be called another Heaven”: the two lighted candles join and become one; the falling rain becomes merged in the river. There is complete transformation, ineffable and perfect peace; no higher state is conceivable, save that of the Beatific Vision in the life to come."[1]
