Who was Cain’s wife?
Perhaps no woman mentioned in Scripture has caused more confusion among Christians. The issue of Cain’s wife is still one of the most common questions people ask. Who was she, and why have so many believers struggled to give a biblical answer to this inquiry?
The simple answer is that Cain married his sister or another close relation, like a niece. This answer may sound revolting for those of us who grew up in societies that have attached a stigma to such an idea, but if we start from Scripture, the answer is clear.
