Communist Manifesto

What did Marx mean when he said Capitalism broke apart traditional relationship?

I am trying to find evidence in the document that shows what Marx thought about Capitalism and how it broke social relationships

What did they mean by this idea? In their opinion, what fueled and motivated this destruction of traditional relationships?

I believe this refers to industrialization, and the fact that merchants selling products that were mass produced replaced the artisan who sold what he made. This broke the social relationships between those who produced and those who consumed, as the personal aspect disappeared.
