Why Two Sexes are Best
We all know that the two sexes are needed for the propagation of our human species. Whether you believe in the creation theory or the evolution theory, you can 't deny that we have a perfect model for success. The prove of the pudding is our society's progress. We are the dominant species on planet earth.

In Genesis, God created Man and Women and gave them dominion over the earth. If you believe in evolution, Darwin's theory of survival of the fittest, you have to conclude that the current two sexes of human biology is ideal.
Why two sexes? It is a fair question to ask. Why not 3 or 1? There are some species that can self fertilize called autogamy. As far as I know, there are no species that require 3 sexes or parents to produce one offspring.
The advantages of two. Let's take a side trip and explore why two of everything. For example we have two arms and two legs. They are mirror images of each other. They may seem identical in everyway but they work in tandem. Try walking on one leg, not very easy.
The same goes with human vision. We have two eyes. Not only each eye can see independently, they work together to give us depth of vision. They allow up to judge distance.
We also have two ears that allow us to hear in stereo.
When it comes to other organs, we have two lungs, two kidneys where even though we can survive on one, the other is almost like a spare.
In each case, the sum of the parts are greater than the total. Our body is designed to produce the optimum results with minimum resources. You can either attribute that to an intelligent designer or to the benefit of natural selection and evolution.
The Need for Two Sexes
When it comes to human biology, I believe the same principles are in play. We have two sexes because they are designed to complement each other to produce the greatest outcome. In our early history, when we were hunters and gatherers, our species require a male who is strong to be able to hunt for foods. The female is the soft nurturer to help with caring of the young. It was a good fit. As we progress, we have the modern industrial age where labor is less intensive but rely more on brains. It is true that both male and female can take on the same tasks for the most part. It depends on having the proper training and education. However, there are a few areas where the task at hand require some physical body strength. Here is where the two sexes have some differences. For example, a fireman has to be able to carry a heavy load of equipment and gear and be able to climb stairs and perhaps help a victim get out of a burning building. The male physique has a clear advantage in general. That is not to say, any given women, can develop the physique to accomplish the same tasks. Just that it would be harder and not the norm.
The two sexes are ideal. God created man and women and two shall become one. God created two sexes to enable mankind to enjoy the blessings of relationship. A man and a woman are to be bonded together in a community that is built upon trust, intimacy, and mutual love. A similar unity exists within the Trinity.
