The role of families in Fahrenheit 451 are very different due to the limited and distracted interaction family members have with each other. There are glimpses of characters starting to realize that their relationships are hollow, but none of the characters act upon it. As an example, “And suddenly she was so strange he couldn’t believe he knew her at all... bedding with a stranger,”(Bradbury 40). The role of family and the
Like Mildred, many others of their society have been washed into believing that books are horrific, dangerous, bad. The nation has turned into an anti-social community that has been confined to staring at a television set for hours with no interaction. With doing so, most of the people have confronted to depression and even suicide. Mildred is so oblivious that she turns against her own husband, Montag, by yelling, “Books aren’t people. You read and I look all around, but there isn’t anybody” (Bradbury, 69).
Mildred’s constant addiction to gadgets represents her denial towards her problems and the little desire she has towards a better life. Her ignorance is another of her great weaknesses since she lives in a world where her feelings don’t matter and is easily influenced by tv and propaganda which explains her obsess towards hair dye and a soap opera family, even when Guy tries to talk to her all she seems able to talk about is her “family”, he tries to talk to her into reading some of the books he has found but she’s just worried that Captain Beatty might show up and “burn the house and the ‘family’” and asks him “why should I read?” “what for?” (34, Bradbury).

Social lives and interaction in Fahrenheit 451 are also somewhat different than our world. In their world, people don’t usually interact, and they have parlor ‘families’ on TV screens. Any relationship someone does have is usually fake, shallow, and distant. In the book, Millie interacts with her neighbors, but all they do is watch the parlor TV’s. When Montag unplugs the parlor, the women can’t seem to have a meaningful conversion, and repeat the same sentences to each other.
He attempts to break loose of his bonds with a knife the capturers left near him, but they came in at the last second to secure him. Thankfully before coming to the HQ Sonny let Rita know where he’d be and she was able to come and find him. Sonny fills her in on what he discovered while he was there.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury represents relationships involving technology struggle. Throughout the book it follows a firefighter named Guy Montag that is highly influenced by society.
