well...unless goes AU, Satine is now fairly high level canon. I have no idea of Satine's age, it's purely *my thought" that she might be older (a leftover from a 'toying with plot bunny'). She could be the same, or younger. It is conceivable that the two were at least mid-teens (16/17) but after the M/D fiasco at age 13, I don't see Obi-Wan willing to sacrifice all for love unless he were bit older and more sure of his feelings (adult feelings). Even then, personally I don't buy the "willing to leave the Order" although I can see him being a bit torn between want (Satine) and need (Force). The other reason I need to work Taria into at least A version of "my canon" is that whole "they needed each other." There's lots of possibilities for him: 1. Post-Tahl's death and Qui-Gon's coldness - poor boy just needed some tenderness (but he was 16? I hate to play with him doing a "friends with benefit" thing at age 16) 2. Adolescent hormones at work 3. Post-Qui-Gon's death and needing comfort (which really makes the most sense to me) 4. Some other yet-unknown "trauma" 5. Post-Satine return. Hmm, poor boy is distraught at leaving Satine, turns to a good friend - I can kind of see that. She's a friend, no problem with it being a mutual need thing. So, 5 seems the most likely, 3 the second most likely. As to Taria: her need? What a nice coincidence her need coincides with Obi-Wan's, isnt' it? Need some GOOD explanation for that, personally. Say Obi-Wan was 19 on Mandalore, hooks up with Taria about 20 thru maybe 21...Qui-Gon dies, Satine sends condolences & invites Obi-Wan to Mandalore, he goes, they hook up for a while? Hmmm... I'd personally rather not have all these ex-lovers around - out of Siri, Taria and Satine, I'd prefer at most 2 of them. I'm rather certain Siri was a platonic love, but even so... gah. Yet being canon enough, I hate to ignore them. Hence my attempt to integrate them into my personal canon.
