3. I dont think it's case closed.

It is possible that Mary was a very religious person who would do anything her God asked her. I'm sure there are fundies today that would leap at the chance to carry God's baby. I think the important thing to realize is that this was a tale written by men. They needed a vessel to deliver their God, so they chose a woman and made her compliant. This was the point of your OP and didn't need to be distracted by that single incident.
