Perhaps the only reason Jedi do not marry is their need to have a full dedication to the ordem. After all, it is never said they cannīt have feelings, but to not allow the feelings to control them. Luke was never said to stop loving Darth Vader, actually that love was what helped him to rescue Darth. But Yoda tells him in ESB to not let his love to Leia and Han to get him out of the trail. He was not told to "Ignore them, be cold like a rock".
And the same goes to Obi-wan and Anakin. Obi-wan never talk anything about the fraternal love Anakin express. And when Anakin talks about Amidala, he warm about Anakin letting his feelings to control him, not about having feelings.
There is possible to do the same with love with a wife (not to say the many ways to get married without worries about love) or a son. A trained experient Jedi could do it.
Not a Horny Teenager like Anakin. That is why Anakin failed.
