WHERE DID CAIN GET HIS WIFE?

Where Did Cain Find His Wife?
LOGIC-“If Adam and Eve had two sons, Cain and Abel, where did Cain’s wife come from?”
Let me show you how u can arrive to a proper conclusion
From the above, we can rightly conclude that Cain’s wife was a descendant of Eve born on an unknown date.
GENESIS acknowledges that during his 930 years of life, Adam “became father to sons and daughters.” Of course, the Bible does not specify that Cain’s wife was Eve’s daughter. Indeed, the fact that she is mentioned after Cain’s banishment indicates that enough time had passed that she could even have been one of Adam and Eve’s granddaughters.
still not convincing? Ok
Hence, The Amplified Old Testament describes Cain’s wife simply as “one of Adam’s offspring.”
Nineteenth-century Bible commentator Adam Clarke speculated that God’s establishing a sign as a result of Cain’s fear came about because several generations of Adam’s descendants already existed—enough “to found several villages.”
That Cain married his sister or a later female descendant of Adam through the marriage of any of Adam’s sons or daughters is viewed by some societies today as unthinkable. Also, it is noteworthy that it was not until Moses received God’s laws for the nation of Israel in 1513 B.C.E. that intercourse between such close relatives was specifically forbidden.—pls read leviticus 18:9,17 and 24
Today because of our poor mindset people think that if close relatives have close intercourse, their offspring would have a defect. But convincingly, Counseling, show that unions between first cousins face lower risks of having children with birth defects than is widely perceived. Reasonably, such issues would not have been a serious concern during Adam’s life span or even prior to Noah’s day. Thus, we can conclude that Cain’s wife was one of his female relatives.
