First, Adam needed a helper. Second, none suitable was found among the animals. Third, God specially made (custom - crafted) the woman out of man's rib to be his helper-wife.
If a man ever wonders why women are so amazing it is because they were custom made to stand face to face with man, and to be a corresponding helper in the case of a husband and wife. A woman who is beautiful and of outstanding character is like a precious jewel of innumerable value. It is truly a wonderful thing to see a husband and wife team who work together and who are on the same page spiritually, emotionally, and sexually.
Marriage is one of God's most beautiful designs (even though we try our best to mess it up), and should be held in honor by all.

Prayer Helps: Praise God for his infinite wisdom in creating two different, yet complementary, sexes.
