Adam’s first task in Genesis is to name the animals, revealing him to be more of a social being, made for fellowship, not power. For it is in this “naming task” that God is looking for a suitable helper.
When the woman is introduced, she is presented as his partner, not as a child bearer. She is valued for herself alone. She is of the “same stuff” as Adam and yet, a wholly new being formed by God, literally as “a help as opposite him.” Their union in marriage is to be an exclusive (man leaves), permanent (cleaves), God-sealed bond (one flesh).
All was well.
