As stated before, there are several theories on where this female came from.
It is a question that is brought up by many who look to find discrepancies and loopholes in the bible.
There is the theory that Cain's wife came from the Land of Nod and that the people of Nod were the children of Adam and Lilith.
There is the theory that Cain wed his sister.
There is the theory that, again, Cain's wife was from Nod and that they were a people that had been created before Adam and Eve were.
There is the theory that Adam and Eve were the first two people created by Yahweh and Cain married into the people created by other deities.
It is hard to say and the best answer would be the one that resonates within your soul as truth. No one can tell you what to believe. You have to choose that one on your own.

I don’t think so plus if you go to Genesis chapter 1 verse 26, it speaks of man in our image blah blah then it is not until the next chapter that he speaks about breathing life into the nostrils of a specific man (Adam); the fact that these two are spoken of in separate chapters leads me to believe that they are indeed two separate instances of God creating man.

It is here that the issue arises... the bible only speaks of cain and abel as being the sons of adam, but in 4:17 it says the following :
ok, where did she come from?

Do the math... based on the current bible the only way this works is by incest. Since this is forbidden then the great book has a major edit going on. Someone must have cut out the detail. If not then the book is faulty and incomplete.
