I can agree with what you've said aboveI am of the opinion that when Eve fell, the affects of the fall upon her were evident to Adam. In other words, not only did he know she disobeyed God, but he saw the affects of death in her already.
Eve was singularly in the most dangerous position a person could ever be. She was fallen. But her head, Adam, was not. The human race was not yet fallen. Adam legally could have turned to God and said 'this woman has disobeyed you and she wants me to disobey you. But I won't. Make me another woman.' Then Eve would be lost forever.
The problem: Adam loved Eve. He didn't want another woman. He wanted that one. And remember, Adam knew God. And he knew that if he fell with Eve, that God was going to get him back. And whatever it took to get Adam back, would get Eve back also.
Some may disagree with that, but that is exactly what happened. And isn't Adam a figure of Christ Who is to come? (Rom. 5:14) And didn't Christ take on a fallen condition to deliver His bride the Church? I believe so.
EXCEPT when you state:
"but that is exactly what happened".
Your explanation is a good one, but no one can be sure of exactly
We know only what is written and should not add anything else, except
to note what our OPINION might be.
