Were the Jedi supposed to not be allowed to get married, have children or any possessions when the OT was made?

I forgot about these two couples:

Jedi Knight Etain Tur-Mukan and Clone commander Darman Skirata fell in love in the “Republic Commando” series of books (part of the 2002-2007 Clone Wars multimedia project), and had a force sensitive child, Venku Skirata, who was force senstive himself.



At the other end of the timeline, in the Old Republic, there is the Jedi who married a Sith (from a certain point of view), when Bastia Shan married Revan, and also had a child together.

There a many more Jedi who married or who had long term relationships, children, possessions and so on, but the above were just the main characters that sprung to my mind.


I haven’t read “Light Of The Jedi”, or much of The High Republic, set 500 BBY to 100 BBY, but in there are apparently Jedi who fall in love, have intimate relationships, and also form emotional attachments:-


'For as different as they might initially seem, Avar [Kriss] and Elzar [Mann] are presented as extremely close friends in the novel, having grown up as fellow younglings, Padawans, Knights, and eventually by the time of the book’s end, Masters of the Order. They go everywhere together, on missions or on downtime. They are compassionate for each other, clearly. Their connection together allows them, as Jedi, to do spectacular things with the Force multiple times in the novel, building on Avar’s own unique ability to connect her fellow Jedi through the Force in powerful acts of sensitivity. One of the last scenes in Light between the two confirms something that felt keenly obvious in looking at their relationship throughout: at one point, as younger Jedi, Avar and Elzar were romantically entwined, before choosing to amicably separate to focus on their studies as apprentices of the Force.

Two Jedi. Two Jedi who loved each other. Who still do. Who are not just good friends, but deeply intimate with each other in a way that goes beyond friendship. Two Jedi who are, by very much any definition of the word, still emotionally attached to each other.’
