God created Adam and he was alone without a companion.
God saw that it was not good for man to be alone and he said to Adam, “I will make you a helpmate. She will be beautiful, she will take care of you and she will make you happy.”
Adam was overcome with gratitude. “God,” he says, “that sounds amazing. How can I thank you?”
God replied, “Well it doesn’t come for free. It will cost you an arm and a leg.”
“That’s pretty steep.” Adam replied. “What can I get for a rib?”
