Does God have a wife?

Here is an interesting question: does God have a wife? 

To answer this question, let's take a look at some verses first:
YLT Gen 1:26 And God saith,  'Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that is creeping on the earth.' 
YLT Gen 1:27 And God prepareth the man in His image; in the image of God He prepared him, a male and a female He prepared them. 
YLT Gen 2:18 . And Jehovah God saith,  'Not good for the man to be alone, I do make to him an helper--as his counterpart.' 
YLT Gen 2:21 . And Jehovah God causeth a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he sleepeth, and He taketh one of his ribs, and closeth up flesh in its stead.
YLT Gen 2:22 And Jehovah God buildeth up the rib which He hath taken out of the man into a woman, and bringeth her in unto the man; 
YLT Gen 2:23 and the man saith,  'This is the proper step! bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh!'  for this it is called Woman, for from a man hath this been taken; 
YLT Gen 2:24 therefore doth a man leave his father and his mother, and hath cleaved unto his wife, and they have become one flesh. 
YLT Gen 2:25 And they are both of them naked, the man and his wife, and they are not ashamed of themselves.
YLT Gen 5:1 This is an account of the births of Adam: In the day of God's preparing man, in the likeness of God He hath made him; 
YLT Gen 5:2 a male and a female He hath prepared them, and He blesseth them, and calleth their name Man, in the day of their being prepared.
As you can see, God has both male and female component (Gen 1:27). However, unlike man (Gen 2:18) God does not need a physical partner, because God is perfect, meaning He is both (male and female) at the same time. 

Also, God clearly does not need a woman, because she is never mentioned, yet Sons of God are mentioned(Genesis 6:1-4). This probably means that God created His sons Himself, just like He created Adam(Human).

Deuteronomy 6:4 is absolutely explicit about oneness of God, which is another reason for why He does not have a wife and rules the universe alone.
