Debate Question

When I was talking to a friend about polygyny, one of her "proofs" of God’s intentions for monogamy only from the beginning of creation was that God only created one woman and one man, and her further proof was that when Noah was on the ark, he only had one wife, and all his sons only had one wife. To her, this was proof positive that when God "started fresh" with mankind after the flood he intended monogamy only for marriage.

I can reasonably explain why God chose at Creation to use one man and one woman, but I don’t really have an answer for why Noah and his sons each had only one wife.

Anyone have a clue?
