    By asking "How else could she end up with a man she despises?", our speaker asks "Is there any other explanation for why she ended up with a man she despises?"

    This is really a rhetorical question. When speakers ask them, they don't expect their listeners to come up with new explanations. Instead, they want to convince their listeners that their explanation is the only good one.
