  • If you read your bible carefully, you'll find out that Adam and Eve had a LOT more than 3 kids. Check out Genesis 5:4

    "After he begot Seth, the days of Adam were eight hundred years; and he had sons and daughters."

    This is mentioned after Cain finding his wife, but Chapter 5 isn't really a part of the timeline.. it's more a study of Adam's family, so it seems likely that Cain simply married one of his sisters.

  • Adam and Eve had more than the three sons. The Bible only talks about the first three though.

  • He got his wife from "The Others"...as in those who did not believe. I wish I could remember the name of the book that I read which talked about this because it was fantastic. It explains a number of the aparent inconsistencies in the bible. Try searching "the others" + bible or "cain's wife" & see what you come up with.

    Good luck!

  • ADAM & EVE were the first couple

    CAIN's wife was daughter of the second couple

  • she would have had to be his sister. just because it doesn't specifically mention more sisters and brothers, you can't assume adam & eve didn't have more children

  • With all the different answers to this one it's no wonder the following chapters are so misinterpreted.

  • He married one of his sisters.
