The Jedi don't reject emotion. Do some actual research on the Code and its lore. They reject attachment, obsession and entitlement -- all feelings that love is extremely prone to causing.

The couple on Tython actually showcases why the rules make sense: the woman at least is already on a very slippery slope. Emotional out the wazoo, no control, no discipline. Lying. Telling others to lie for her. Blackmail. I don't remember if she actually threatens you, even? That's a whole battery of alarm bells ringing like crazy there. "K3wl rebels 4 luv" may look cutesy in and of themselves -- but could they be trusted with a superweapon, the ability to scramble your brains right out of your ears and all the authority that being a Jedi gives them? Force Sensitives are creepy enough when they have strong ethics and self-control. Take that away and you have a recipe for disaster.

And Jolee Bindo isn't someone I'd want to emulate on this issue, seeing as how badly he mucked up in his own love affair.
