Question: Where Did Cain Get His WIFE? Answer: This is one of the most common questions we receive. If Adam was the first man, directly created by God, and Eve the first woman, also a direct creation, and only three sons are mentioned - Cain, Abel, and Seth, it is but natural that many ask, "Where then, did Cain get his wife?" Did Cain have a wife? Yes, it is written in Gen. 4:17: "And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch." Cain had a wife, and a son. For that matter, where did Seth get a wife? Seth is a direct ancestor of Noah, of Abraham, of David, and of Christ. So Seth, as well as Cain, must have had a wife. The answer is found in the genealogy of Adam, in Genesis 5. It is written in verse 4, "And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters: and all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died."
