Why Were Eve's Eyes Not Opened Until Adam Ate?

When looking closely at Genesis 3:6–7, one can't help but wonder why Eve's eyes were not opened until Adam ate and what exactly Scripture means by, "their eyes were opened?"

Does it mean hers was opened before Adams'?
Does it mean hers was opened even without tasting the apple?

The serpent(devil) already knows good n evil. So of course he was able to whine eve n she fell for it. Now since her eyes were now opened, d devil left the whining for her to do on adam. That's why she was able to convince him.

What would had happened (or how was humanity meant to be) IF Eve hadn't eaten the fruit?

My own wonder comes from the fact that God who is supposed to be all knowing decided to create man even when he knew that creating that one man and woman will ultimately lead to billions of people perishing in hell for eternity. Why the hell did God create man? What is it that he and his angels couldn't do that they had to create man for? Then put a temptation for man in the garden? The same all knowing God knew the snake was tempting eve and that she would fall and he did nothing until it happened then he was quick to rush out to punish all of mankind including billions who were unborn when the said transgression took place. Why not just destroy Adam and eve and at least only two people would have suffered rather than billions? The Bible still has a lot of questions to answer because from the story I've read in Genesis, there is only one person to blame for the tragedy of man both on earth and eternity and that is God!!! He shouldn't have created us at all!! I for one know that if I had been given a choice to either come to this world or not, I would have chosen not to come to this world with all it's evil and wickedness. Asking why Eve's eyes were not open is immaterial, if God had just stopped creating on the sixth day, or if he had not placed that tree in the garden as temptation, we won't be in this mess. The way I see it, it's like God deliberately created man and set man up to fail and perish for eternity while saving only a few for reasons that only him knows

Her eyes were not opened because she was masturbating. When he ate the 'apple' ( her toto) her eyes became wide open.

Her eyes were opened before Adam's. Thank God Adam ate the apple too. Women would have been gods to men today.

It's because eve was made from Adam, there is a covenant between them, both of them were one flesh, so when eve ate her eyes wasn't open until she gave the fruit to Adam ...when Adam now ate it, there eyes was now open... HOPE YOU GET ME

The Bible did not state the particular fruit in question. But further study and revelations make me believe the fruit is sex.
The two trees in the garden are figurative.
The tree of knowledge of good and bad has to do with sex.
Why didn't the serpent beguile her to eat the tree of life?
The tree of life - Has to do with eternal life (Jesus)

That's why her eyes was not open till she gave Adam.
Subsequent chapter reveal that Adam met her once and she had two sons.
Read the genealogy from Adam downwards.
Cain and Abel's name was not found. Abel is not there because he was killed without having a child. But the Bible confirmed Cain had children.
The book of Hebrews said Enoch is the seventh from Adam. If Cain were to be mentioned, Enoch would have been eight from Adam.

This makes a lot of sense

anyways, the main reason their eyes were opened after eating the fruit is the same reason Spiderman's got his superpowers after being bitten by a genetically modified spider; it all happened in the myth writer's imaginations

As for the part in blue, that's actually what the so-called god is doing.
