The original Jedi allowed themselves to have multiple padawans, train adults, and get married. Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma kinda ruined it for everyone. Even during the Clone Wars there were other sects of Jedi, such as those who followed Master Djinn Altis, who followed the older ways, and did not obey the council, but also did not fall to darkness as a result of love and attachment. Several notable Jedi during the Clone Wars WERE members of the Jedi order and had secret romantic relationships, and Ki-Adi-Mundi had special permission from the Council to be a polygamist.
The rigidity of the Council and the Code led a lot of Jedi to disillusionment long before the Clone Wars, which was when most Jedi started to question the direction of the Order and specifically the Council. Using Jedi as generals to "defend" an increasingly oppressive Republic utilizing a slave army? Not exactly the defenders of virtue.
