View Full Version : The Marriage of Anakin & Padme

In all the storyline predictions, nobody addresses what happens after the wedding. Personally I believe Anakin & Padme announce the wedding, making it public. That causes some major problems with Anakin and his affiliation with the jedi. Do they ask him to leave the order? Do they accept the marriage because they need all the jedi they can get for the clone wars?

I'm sure some of you believe that the marriage will be kept a secret. I don't think so because Padme's convictions as an "honest do-gooder" personality will make her be open about the union.

What do you think?

I think Padme made a decision out of love that she knew she would regret. Their discussion in AOTC was foreshadowing the future. If she was such an "honest do-gooder" why weren't more people at their wedding? Their secret will destroy them.

You're right, it didn't look like there were guests at the wedding. However, we were only seeing a short shot of the scene, with the lake in the background. It appeared they were at some type of park, in which guests could have attended, but that wasn't shown.

I know this is kinda stretching it, but Padme is used to handmaidens and people around her primping and preening her. She was wearing a gown and her hair was beautiful as always. I could see her family attending.

But if you're right, and they keep it a secret I agree.

Yes, there could have been guests at the wedding, but IMO if there really were they would have been shown.

What, don't the droids count?

I don't think there was anyone there except the priest and the droids. They turn around and stare at the lake and act as if they were alone. If there were people there, they completely ignored them, which is unlikely. If there were guests, don't you think Obi-wan would've known, instead of believing he was only "escorting" her back? It was secret. And it will help lead to his downfall

According to the SW official website, the only other sentient beings at the wedding were R2, C-3PO, and the priest.

I think that Anakin will leave the Jedi Order and go and live on Tattooine with Padme.. but then Obi Wan will come and ask him to join him on that "damned fool idealistic crusade" which will end up being his ultimate downfall.. that'll explain why Owen Lars will come to hate Obi Wan :)
I wonder what will happen to Padme in Episode III, she'll probably find out that she's pregnant when Anakin is away

He was probably told the story of Anakin's downfall in the process of Obi Wan placing Luke in he and Beru's care. I seriously doubt Anakin will be anywhere but right in the center of the Clone Wars throughout their entire duration.
