Rashi here brings a Midrash that Adam Harishon's height was from earth until the Heavens. Based on the Midrash, was Chava that tall as well? Otherwise it would have been quite difficult to be married to each other.

    Perhaps the midrash is not true, or is true but not literal... – mevaqesh Aug 7 '17 at 1:26

    @mevaqesh Don't play dull. Clearly the question is asking according to those who hold they are literal. – DonielF Aug 7 '17 at 2:43
  • @Don what are you taking about "they are literal" who is talking them" I was talking about the intent of a particular source; that the OP asked about. Not about a genre of literature that the OP didn't ask about. No need to hurl accusations... – mevaqesh Aug 7 '17 at 2:49

    @mevaqesh Not my intention, sorry. All I was trying to say is that in these sorts of questions it's reasonable to assume they're taking the Midrash literally, as the question doesn't start otherwise. – DonielF Aug 7 '17 at 4:08

    @mevaqesh my question is not whether the Midrash is literal or not. That is beyond my pay grade. My question is whatever the Midrash meant for Adam, did the same apply to Chava as well, be it literal or whatever. – Earl Aug 7 '17 at 14:07
