Genesis Explains the Origin of Sexes

Almost all forms of complex life have both male and female—horses, dogs, humans, moths, monkeys, fish, birds, etc. The male needs the female to reproduce, and the female needs the male to reproduce. One cannot carry on life without the other. The Bible tells us that "he who made them at the beginning made them male and female" (Matthew 19:4). But if evolution is true, which then came first according to the evolutionary theory?

If a male came into being before a female, how did the male of each species reproduce without females? How is it possible that a male and a female each spontaneously came into being, yet they have complex, complementary reproductive systems? If each sex was able to reproduce without the other, why (and how) would they have developed a reproductive system that survives both sexes in order for the species to survive?
