A striking legend describes Adam and Eve just as they were about to depart from the Garden, venturing

as the vanguard couple into the world below. There were solemn embraces and goodbyes. Just before the couple disappeared in the distant mists, the Father, knowing better than they what was ahead for them, could not stand it. He called them back -- and gave them a sense of humor. – Truman G. Madsen, Marriage and Family: Gospel Insights, 72-73.
