With that said, any moral code which forbids love (romantic or platonic) should probably not be used as a guide for human behavior.
I see nothing wrong with that code. The problem is, in the SW universe, you really only have two options for learning to use your force abilities and both are extreme exact opposites. With any other ideals being considered wrong/rebelious and not really getting a chance to be a part of those lesser known orders.
