The first manifestation of female woman and male man appeared in the creation of Eve and Adam and in the consummation of their ontological marriage.
We may observe that there is a strong presence of Adam and Eve in every male man/female woman relationship, according to Ibn 'Arabî. It is as if the beginning of creation is the archetype for every true conjugal relationship that ever occurs in human history.
Ibn 'Arabî relates his vision of the beginning of man, the first relationship between the two sexes and the quiddity of love of women to Divine Love, in a symbolic manner open to interpretation.
We will attempt to summarize these comprehensive and complex perceptions as much as possible in the next two paragraphs.
