Who was Cain’s Wife

Question:        Cain went to the land of Nod and got married.  His wife is the descendant of what family?


Answer:          The bible does not provide much information on this matter.  We have to use the information available to us.  We know that Adam and Eve also had other children; Gen. 5:4, “…..the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters…..”  Everybody is a descendant of Adam and Eve and Cain was one of the first generation children.  Cain’s wife had to either be of the first generation, second generation or possibly the third generation.  By deductive reasoning, we have to conclude that Cain’s wife was in some way related to him.
