God, creator of all that we know, could have unfolded creation in whatever fashion He desired. We know from Genesis that first there were the heavens and the earth, then the light, the land, the stars, the living creatures and finally, the creation of mankind. Upon having created the man and woman in his likeness, He blessed them then His first utterance to the pair was:
“Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it” (Genesis 1:28)
He could have initiated the human experience with an order of prophets, a church, a village of children…, truly whatever he wished. He chose to bring forth a man and, from his own essence, a woman to serve as his partner bound in natural unity. He then commanded His human creations to produce a family. The very first commandment, and thus God’s first institution is the Family.
