Can a Jedi leave the Jedi order?

    Sure. It doesn't happen very often, but there have been a handful that have left. Usually it's because they've fallen to the Dark Side if they're a fully-ranked Jedi. Padawans sometimes leave before entering their apprenticeship, as well.

    A quote from wookiepedia:

    "The way of the Jedi was a life-long path, and a Jedi usually remained part of the Order their entire life—learning more about the Order and the Force and following the will of the Jedi Council. Up until the beginning of the Clone Wars, only twenty Jedi (of rank Master or higher) were said to have ever left the Order (although there is some debate as to whether this means the post-Ruusan Order, the Order after some earlier point in its history, or literally in its entire history), of which the most prominent were Count Dooku and Master Phanius. These were commonly referred to as the Lost Twenty, or simply 'The Lost'."

    Yes, I think they can leave. The first Sith Lord was a Jedi who left and was seduced by the Dark Side. Count Dooku also left the order.

    Yes they can be expelled by getting married. They can turn to the dark side, and they can just leave.

    He can be black-balled but he can't leave.
