Ever since from my childhood i was wondering from where does the wife of Cain came from cos You know Adam was the first man on earth then came Eve made by God for his companion then they had two sons Cane & Abel ( and Seth in later scenario), Cain kill his bro Abel then he was sent in exile as a wanderer, after which its written in the Bible that Cain married & had his own family. I'm not being argumentative here, as a Christian i also believe everything written in there but just out of my curiosity i just wanna know .

i've heard many ideas about this and i've wondered also. which was right. some say thats where we got the idea we were from apes.perhaps he took an ape. some say he married an angel. so maybe we came from angels also, hence our good side (angel)bad side (Cain).

It assumes if you believe the Bible or you believe in evolution. I believe the Bible, that there were just two people created man and woman, not an apelike race over there, a humanoid very advanced race someplace else, not space aliens come from above. It demeans us to say that we came from apes as some suggests - because then we have an excuse if we eat like slobs. And if we come from space aliens, then it would be a shame because we cannot go on space ships to other planets. But the answer is that Cain probably took one of his sisters, and asked his parents so he could have her as his wife, that is before they discovered he had murdered his brother. And at that time, the only way that children could be born was for brother to marry sister, at least for the first generation before the gap widened. You have to understand that there were no defects in Adam and Eve or their children. That did not come until generations later, and mostly after the Flood when there was not a large a gene pool as before. Then the rule against incest began and now it is extremely risky to marry even a first cousin.
