I take it you've never had a suitable helper
or have any concept what that would mean to a lonely/only guy on earth.
maybe Adam was made without a lower end....
like a disembodied torso floating about the air...
Anyway all of that is explained in the Jewish oral tradition of the story, in which his first wife Lilith would not obey him, hence God made him a suitable helper out of his own DNA.....
in any event, man and woman were told to multiply in the previous chapter, Genesis 1:28, long before Eve was made.
