You are interested in establishing that each of these beings are brought into existence one-by-one by a monotheistic creator deity. If you are interested in emphasizing the theology of your fictional cosmos, you could make explicit that the God has both masculine and feminine characteristics. God is both 100% male and 100% female; He is the perfect man, and the perfect woman. God deliberately chooses to withhold the feminine characteristics from his men, and similarly withholds masculine characteristics from the women, in order to accentuate both. Or, He intended to make His created beings, the men and the women, mutually dependent upon each other, or wants to prevent them from being capable of rivaling His power. (In the Symposium, one of the Dialogs of Plato, it was explained that humans were originally made as eight-legged creatures, capable of autonomous reproduction, and then were divided into male and female after revolting against the gods.)
Biological reproduction does not happen in your literary universe; but when the people are created, are they physically developed and self-sufficient? Or are the people created as infants? If infants, they would need to be breast-fed, as they are physically incapable of digesting solid food. The women would obviously be incredibly vital for the existence of the species. It makes sense that the God would choose to create the people in this way for the two reasons mentioned above--to make the people loving and caring for one another, and submissive towards God; people that are created as helpless infants could presumably be taught to serve the will of God more easily than if they were created as self-reliant and skeptical adults).
The menfolk, likewise, would be built to perform heavy manual labor and could be the builders, warriors, lumberjacks, etc. Obviously, traditional gender roles in the labor market existed for a reason, and were never called into question until the age of machines and automation. Because the men and the women are dependent upon one another in practical, pragmatics ways, and because they themselves were once children raised by a mother and a father, they would be emotionally compelled to complete the cycle; to seek each other's company and agree to cohabitate with one another, promising each to the other their sole attention for a lifetime. Once a household is formed, the deity would perhaps see fit to induce them to take care of another person from infancy to adulthood. Perhaps a baby would be delivered by a stork? Scratch that; perhaps the deity himself is an avian creature who lovingly flies, delivering gift-baskets from the sky to its favorite humans, similar to the sparrow in the Japanese fable shita-kiri suzume, The Tongue-Cut Sparrow.
