My young son a few years ago also asked me a similar kind of question. He said that he knew that Adam and Eve had children, I think he said their names were Cain, Abel and Seth (all three were boys). But then he asked me how did Adam and Eve's boys have their children? Who did they have sex with to have their children Daddy?
I am sure that I read somewhere, long ago that Adam and Eve did have daughters, but quite a very difficult answer to give to quite a young child, especially when trying to teach the wrongs and rights within their lives. Very hard to give an answer without sounding incestuous.....
I just said, 'I dunno, ask your mom.' Funnily enough, she had the same answer, 'I dunno, ask your dad.'...........

Yes, it is true that they had daughters, especially considering how long they lived. The problem though, is that at the time, only Men were noted down when they were born, as they were the head of the family, so the question of where their sons got wives is common, but easily explained.
