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 Don't play dull. Clearly the question is asking according to those who hold they are literal.

    @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.

    @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.

    Ah, so is this where the whole "tall guys always end up with short girls" thing originated? Fascinating!
