Where did Cain get his wife to marry if he was on earth with only Adam and Eve

Where did Cain get his wife to marry if he was on earth with only Adam and Eve. After Cain had killed his brother Abel. The scripture records that Cain left his parents to a faraway land and he knew his wife and conceived their son.

But the question is where from his wife if he was on earth with Adam and Eve only.

This question has been in existence for thousands of years and even till now people are still debating about it.

Ancient theologians and researchers tried to come out with certain theories. One of them is the Pre Adamic theory.

Some people believe that some organisms including Humans existed before Adam.

Some evolutionists are of the view that the first species of humans to exist were the Homo Habillis and we Homo Sapiens are about the fourth species. Can this mean that the first species of humans existed before Adam.

The first known debate about human origin happened in 170 AD between a Christian, Theophilus of Antioch, and an Egyptian pagan, Apollonius the Egyptian (probably Apollonius Dyscolus), who claimed that the world was 153,075 years old.

People also believe that Cain went to marry from some “non white Mongols”.

Also looking at this from the perspective of the Bible. From the scripture

Then Cain went out from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Ē´noch. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son—Ē´noch. Genesis 4:16‭-‬17 NKJV.

Then Cain knew his wife doesn’t mean that he found his wife there but rather they engaged in activities which caused Cain’s wife to conceive a son, Enoch.

Also from the scripture

After he begot Seth, the days of Adam were eight hundred years; and he had sons and daughters. Genesis 5:4 NKJV

It is clear that Adam had sons and daughters. Could this be the answer?

One thought on “Where did Cain get his wife to marry if he was on earth with only Adam and Eve

  1. A parallel question is how did others immediately after got their wife, Lamech even gotten two,
    We’ll, the Bible says
    Genesis 4:23
    [23]And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.
    Gen 51-5 gave the summary of Adam family. He begat sons and daughters. But we were never told the position of those daughters in his family but those of men. May be before Caon or immediately after him before Abel he was likely to have gotten s daughter which Cain eventually married.
