Same reason most other cultures encourage marrying only within their culture; it's what they're comfortable with. I believe I've already touched on why they prohibit technology, but to go into a little more detail, as far as I know, it's mainly to keep themselves humble and unworldly. They also don't want to become overly reliant on things that are, frankly, luxuries.

It's a lifestyle very similar to those of some other religious orders, e.g. monasteries or nunneries.


What's the point of keeping themselves humble and unworldly? O_o. They choose not to use those conveniences. Well, their belief stagnates the development of education and future technology. Do they think what they're doing is right?
