its not encouraged, but its not like they'll hunt you down if you do.
the only time they step in is when stuff starts going bad.

like if a jedi got secretly married to someone, then 5 - 10 years later the council finds out, but you're still a perfectly fine jedi who's not falling to the dark side or anything, i doubt they'd do anything about it. maybe yell at you a bit.

its better to look at the jedi code and rules more like guidelines than strict rules you must follow.

An example of a Council approved marriage may be Galan Marek's parents, as TFU is set only a few years after Episode III and Galan was a child, but this is pure player speculation here.

For your second question, I think this post said it best:

However, he did not enter exile with her as she died during the war with Exar Kun, having turned to the dark side.

Satele wasn't afraid of the other Jedi and she willingly gave the child up as the Order dictated. If anything she can be described as the embodiment of a true Jedi, a little too detached for my tastes.

Luke Skywalker's Jedi Order in the EU didn't have this restriction, because he also disagreed with it.

Luke was sitting in his and Mara's bedroom one night going over all the old Rules and Regulations from previous Jedi Orders when he came upon the data file regarding the banning of love and marriage. He looked over at Mara who had just gotten out of the shower, smiled, and quickly hit the DELETE button on that file.

You must of not actually listed to any of the VO work for that quest then.

It was quite clear that those two were no where nearly ready for any kind of relationship, they were already starting to twist the jedi teachings and code to suit their desires. The girl was clearly already starting down the path of the Dark Side because of her emotions.

They were also padawans, and not full Jedi Knights, so they still had much to learn and prove.

It's amazing how many people play though that quest yet don't actually pay any attention to what is really going on, or why you're doing what you are doing.

BTW the Sith method of dealing with a situation like that would of been to kill both of them, and take the price she was offering.

Luke was married and it's not even so unheard some jedis having kids. Like Bastila and Revan married and had children. As you know Satele Shan is a descendent of Bastila. Not sure if they did quit Order but all this happened anyway. No doubt there have been a lot cases.

If you would literally follow Jedi code you would never have passions so you wouldn't really feel anything to anyone. There have been some jedi who have gone that far but that kinda blinds them from real sense justice when they allways just do it as it seem to be correct.

I'm not sure how force affects on these feeling matters. As it can corrupt you if you give in to your passions. Does force somehow guide with it and how it affects if you are more or less strong with force if it even matters. Or is it just more about character?

Perfectly explained. So long as you can handle the death of your loved ones and don't mix love with lust, it's all right to love, marry, have sex, orgies and whatever.

Well, if you rat them out, you get LS points but you still feel like a snitch. But if you LIE to the Masters, you take a DS hit. Now, there is a way to make it a wash as far as LS/DS goes. Lie to the Masters, then go back and talk them out of their relationship. Same LS/DS gain cancels each other out.

I do believe something was said somewhere about Revan and Bastila handing in their two weeks notice to the Jedi before they officially hooked up, just so they wouldn't have to go through all the garbage regs as to getting married.

Maybe not, but it makes sense.
