I don't think it was the oldest profession. In my opinion in stone age when men started making tools and spears out of stones, that was the first profession.
Later making clothes out of animal skin or tree bark was the second profession.

Neither there is any historical truth or any reasons behind it. TYhe evolution of the institution of marriage was indeed a necessity to stop fights over possession of women. That si evident in humans and animals so. The marriage brought or created the distinction between humans and rest of the animal worl. Befor that, I am not sure, engaging multiple promiscuous relation could be termend as business . It is an unfounded proverb. In my opinion, the violence and willing to kill was and still now the foremost business.
