Jedi Code?
#1
Does anybody here know if there is anything in the Jedi Code that precludes love and/ormarriage? I have read some pretty confusing things about it, lately. :question:

The actual Jedi Code is as follows:
"There is no emotion; there is peace.
There is no ignorance; there is knowledge.
There is no passion; there is serenity.
There is no death; there is only the Force."

But as for the rules and Dogma of the Jedi, Jedi are forbidden to have romantic relationships with others.
But it seems in the New Republic era, The Jedi have either no knowledge of certain aspects of the code (if any) or they have chosen to overturn this rule as Jedi, including Luke, are invovled in relationships.

According to Lucas, the movies are canon, and so we have to take them at face value. The EU of books can be taken as canon until Lucas decides otherwise, which is fair. So, as far as the original Jedi go, no romantic relationships. Those lead to thoughts of possession and loss, which can start a Jedi down the Dark Side.
All your base are belong to us.

It could be that the purpose of my life is only to serve as a warning to others.

I think that the new Jedi have decided how ridiculous that could be. Look at Luke and Mara Jade, not to speak of Han and Leia, and Leia had twins, yet!

Well part of the reason there was Palpatine destroyed all records of the Jedi so Luke and his crew started new without the remenants of the past.
I can imagine quite a bit.

Yeah, but an organization that had been around for centuries surely left some outside records. Of course, old Palpatine was known for his thoroughness... But, still, Obi-wanand Yoda were around for a while. Surely they would have mentioned it to Luke. :up:

Possibly, but I would think that with what little time they had with him, they would be more concerned with training Luke in harnessing and using the force, rather than with the rules and doctrines of the order.

I have always thought that Luke was at least partially aware of Jedi rules, it's just that he chose to go against them. He was after all, the now leader of the Jedi, and he could mould the new order as he wished.

Erm... sorry but, since when Leia is a Jedi?

Leia was trained to use the force. She is, afterall, the offspring of Anakin. I think that back in the days of the OT that people never really realized that Leia could possibly harness the force if she was taught. Well, I think that people might have guessed that Leia could harness the force in the fight between Luke and Vader in EP VI. Luke wouldn't turn, and Vader told him that if he wouldn't turn to the darkside, then perhaps Leia would.

In Tim Zahn's Thrawn books, Leia is training to be a Jedi. While pregnant with twins, married to Han, active in the Council of the New Republic, and an ambassador on occasion. Talk about a busy girl...
