We couldn't begin to study the Proverbs 31 woman, a woman fit to be the wife of a king, without first looking in depth at the very first marriage relationship: that of Adam and Eve. Through it we learn God's purpose in creating Eve,
her role in His creation, and His intention for marriage between a man and a woman. We also see the devastating results of Adam and Eve's fall in the garden of Eden, with God's subsequent admonitions and adjustments, and His provisions for their welfare in
a fallen state.
