Yes. There is very little emotion in this society, there is no expression or means of expression and no longer any free thinking. Every thought and feeling is interrupted with the constant din of the TV walls that encompass the house which emit meaningless dribble that makes almost no sense. Since there is little opportunity to think and express, marriages are more like cohabiting than they are deep meaningful relationships. No one really has any relationship with anyone, it's a society in which everyone lives side by side but they are all alone, they nothing to connect them like literature.
