I think you should not try to think of the space between two masses as being curved in any way.

It is really just the mathematical model (the graphs) that look bent.

No one knows why this should be the case but is observed to be the case and so the mathematical model (relativity) which shows this effect (and makes incredibly accurate predictions)

As well as I have learned,space and time are treated as two sides of the same coin and it is the way they combine that changes when in the presence of mass or energetic processes.

Stand to be corrected as I have no formal learning apart from what I have picked up on these and other science forums.
