1. Zvi,

    They may have had daughters before Seth, so your first point (about the child having to be called Seth) is moot. And again, even if it is as you say, Cain could have very well got a wife 130 years later, but I think they would have had at least 1 daughter before Seth was born.

    You do bring some interesting points though. But I will stick with Genesis 5:4 for the explanation of how Cain found a wife.

    G-d Adam said that g-d gave him “offspring” after kayin a girl is cosidered offspring by all standards. So the verse is clear that there were NO offspring before Seth. And its not so much the issue of cain waiting 130 years as the theory that kayin married somone at least 130 years younger.
