"after all the jedi are not gods they have needs just like everyone else and getting married would give into sins of the flesh and the dark side."
So you'd rather they live their entire lives chaste, having to suppress their sexual urges, or at the very least celibate and only allowed to do one night stands at the most, because having a relationship and getting married would be "giving into the sins of the flesh"?
The Dark Side seems to be a gradual process, and even the traumatic experience of his mother's death did not send Anakin immediately into the Dark Side.
And really, what do you mean by "sins of the flesh"? That phrase reeks of fundamentalism.
