    The dating of 4th century seems that it could be a fragment of discussion of the Nicene Creed committee work. That is someone wondering about the virgin birth and whether Mary was both mother and wife. The limited amount of text supplied really allows no context assessment at all. This particular possibility would be less an indication that some Christians thought Jesus was married and more pointing out the absurdity of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost as a responsible understanding just as the tale of baptism by John points out three distinct beings as well.
