It's possible you have this back to front. If God created -- aka gave birth to -- the Universe then she's probably female. Your question may be better asked, "Does God have a husband?
But assuming for a moment that you were correct we come to this conversation between God and St. Peter.
Pete: You look terrible, Boss. Why don't you take a holiday. Himself: Where would I go? Pete: What about Earth. It's pretty cool at this time of year. Himself: No way, good buddy. Last time I visited Earth I had an affair with a little Jewish girl. That was 2000 years ago -- and they're STILL talking about it.
I think outside the Box but have learned to keep my thoughts to my self. Too many Nay sayers and those shock treatments really hurt. Just the other day I went out to the car and opened the door and the car started.
God/Allah is a powerful heavenly spirit being. Marriage is a human institution created by God. Why would a genderless heavenly spirit even NEED a spouse? And since there is no gender a spouse would be neither husband or wife. Nor do spirit beings need sexual pleasure like humans. So just say God did have a 'spouse' so to speak. What would be the point? Theyd just be two genderless spirits hangin out together. What you called 'thinking outside the box' is really just being trapped inside the box of human limited thought. If you were truely thinking OUTside the box youd have a clearer picture of the fact God is not constrained by human thoughts and needs and desires like 'marriage' and 'spouses' and 'sex' and that sort of thing. Rather than thinking outside the box, you strive to force God/Allah into the box with you. God/Allah is SO much more, SO far beyond and OUTside, the things humans want and need that your question shows how little you clearly even TRY to understand or think outside the box.
Jehovah was not always the "one god" to the Hebrews. The Hebrew people were an offshoot of the Canaanite tribes. In the Canaanite pantheon, Jehovah was the sky god, married to the earth goddess. The Hebrews broke off because they were the faction that thought Jehovah was the strongest. It wasn't until contact with the Greeks that the Hebrews became monotheists.

The YHWH, or Yahweh, or Jehovah was originally part of the Canaanite gods. He was one of the sons of El (the supreme god of the Canaanites) brother to Baal, and his consort was Asheria. Some time after the Babylonian exile and the time of the Persians they became monotheistic. El disappeared from the Hebrew worship and a family feud started against Baal and Asheria. So yes at one point he did have a wife.
