Who is Katharine?

Katherine is Winston's wife. Since the party does not allow divorce, they are still legally married.
Winston reflects on Katherine's lack of emotion several times through the novel, often comparing the daring Julia to his frigid wife.

She is Wilson's wife but isn't talked very much in the book. They were legally married, but since the party disallows divorce, even though he had sex with Julia, they technically were married to each other, and the fact would still remained as the truth.
