This question already has an answer here:

According to Genesis, God created Adam and Eve.

They disobeyed God and as a result, they were driven out from heaven.

They had two sons, Cain and Abel.

Cain killed Abel and God punishes Cain.

After that, it says that Cain married.

But whom did he marry?

And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

Genesis 4:17 (KJV)

This is definitely an interesting question. If I have time in the next few days (I work as a alkylated programmer, and you can imagine), I'll give you my answer. –  Paul Vargas Mar 6 at 14:19
    
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. Be sure to properly cite the text you're asking about. The chapter and verse numbers do not always line up between the Hebrew, Greek, and English texts. To clarify, are you asking who Cain married? Or are you asking something else? This is not clear. –  Dan Mar 6 at 15:42

Whom did Cain marry according to Genesis?

According to Genesis, we are not told whom Cain married. However, according to logic, Cain married a daughter of Adam; cf. Genesis 5:4.
