Who did Cain marry?
The Christians claim that Adam and Eve were the first Human Beings on earth. Well they had children after God sent them away and then Cain murdered his brother Abel. Cain was a cast away since then. He later got married and had children. Who did he marry if there weren't other people on earth?
Cain had sisters and married one of them. Back in those days marrying your sister was very common and not awkward at all.
Don't take the Bible literally -- not all the time. The first 5 books were written in code by Kabbalists.
Even if you do take it literally, you should notice that Genesis 5:2 describes Adam as a "them" -- the first tribe, but it doesn't say how many. There could have been thousands!
The "days" of Adam were "years," and these were the "generations" of Adam, so the 930 were not "years" as we think of them.
Each of the patriarchs of Genesis 5 may have been individuals, but they also may have been eponymous tribes.
Genesis 4 and 5 have remarkably similar names. This is the Kabbalist's "Tree of Life" matrix embedded in Genesis.
If one believes the Bible, the rational conclusion is that he married his full sister and she followed him when he was banished. On the other hand, if you put faith in the Kabbalah histories then there are a couple of other possible scenarios (depending on which tradition -and teacher- you put your faith in); there is the story that Adam and Lilith had children together, thus making it plausible that Cain could have married a half-sister. There is also the YAHWEH and Lilith had children, making for the theory that Cain wed a female child produced from that union. Then there is the rarer story that Eve and the Serpent had an affair and Eve's first children were his offspring, thus making it possible that Cain married a half-sister from their union(s).
This is an assumption. The Bible didn't mention any such event.
Oh course not. The Bible is a collection of Jewish passages complied by Christians. It does not represent the entire Judaic belief system, modern or archaic.
So the Christians are believing a speculation right?
"Who did he marry if there weren't other people on earth?"
Where does it say this, exactly? Nowhere.
Cain, Abel, and Seth were not the only children of Adam and Eve. It says "...and [Adam] had many other sons and daughters." This, given how the words "son" and "daughter" have multiple meanings in Hebrew, could more accurately be rendered: "...and [Adam] had many other male and female descendants." In addition to Cain, Abel, and Seth, Adam and Even had many other children and descendants. They aren't mentioned by name as Cain, Abel, and Seth are and we aren't told when they were born, but that doesn't mean they didn't exist.
Adam lived to be 930 years old. Several hundred years of sexual intercourse with no birth control can only mean one thing: BABIES! There's no conceivable way that someone can live that long, have that much sex, and only be the father of three people!
If Adam and Eve are truly the first two people on the planet and the ancestors of all the rest of mankind, then it follows that Cain must have married one of his sisters, or one of his nieces (the daughters or descendants of one of his brothers and one of his sisters). There really aren't any other options...
Keep in mind that incestuous marriage like this wasn't yet (at this point in time) forbidden by God.
Anyway, hope this helps you!

If man originated from one source, Adam and Eve, how come we have white and black people?Adam and Eve were either black or white. And if they really had the same skin color, where do other skin colors originate from. And also, why do we have different races? What really happened to us?
