Where did Cain's wife come from,Did people pre-exist Adam

And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and born Enoch. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son - Enoch (Genesis 4:17).

1)If all humanity descended from Adam and Eve, then where did his wife come from?

2)In addition, where did all the people come from that are mentioned in the account?

3)If Cain married a relative, then doesn't this indicate incest?

The Bible says Adam was one hundred and thirty years old when Seth was born. He then lived another eight hundred years. God had promised Eve that he would greatly multiply her conception (Genesis 3:16). In fact Jewish tradition states that Adam had 33 sons and 23 daughters! Therefore many people could have existed at the time when Cain killed Abel. It has been conservatively estimated that 32,000 people could have been alive at that time this event occurred,IT IS TRUE?
