The party destroys loving relationships in many ways.

It preaches hate, making love harder to sustain.

It makes sex unappealing.

It encourages people to value Big Brother and the state over one another.

It spies on people.

It sponsors anti-sex leagues.

It creates a language that will eventually define love out of existence.

Among married people with children, we must also remember the children's Spy League.  They are taught, much like the Hitler Youth, to report anything their parents do or say which is against the Party.  Therefore, with the help of the telescreen, people are never safe to allow their true feelings to show.
