A woman is acquired in 3 ways and gets herself out of it in 2 ways.  What kind of acquiring is going on here?  Is it like buying an object?  Or is there something more than that?  Why is the subject the woman is acquired and not the man acquires?  Why is the root kinyan (acquiring) used and not the root kodesh (kiddushin) used as appears in the second chapter where it says the man is mekadesh.  Why does the word 3 appear in feminine where is a similarly structured mishna is appears in masculine form.
