Why does the party permit couples to marry but discourages love?
1 Answer | Add Yours
The Party only permits marriages between couples who are incompatible with each other - meaning there is no love between them. The only purpose of these marriages is so the couple will have children. The Party discourages love because it is considered an act of rebellion. Developing loyalty to another takes away from one's devotion to Big Brother.
