1984: Winston and Julia's relationship

At its core, Winston and Julia's relationship is all about rebellion against the party. When Julia first falls in love with Winston, she falls for how he was different. Winston, while originally being attracted to her youth, finds comfort in his thoughts with her. For the two of them, they both desperately need escape from the government. After the first night, the narrative mentions that "their embrace had been a battle, the climax a victory. It was a blow against the Party. It was a political act" (Orwell 126). This quote proves what their relationship is based upon: going against the Party.
