Sue, Jackie and Lynn began the series as girlhood friends, voicing the half-realistic, half-dreamy hopes of working-class girls for good husbands and decent jobs. The Up series subsequently saw Sue marry at 24 and divorce by 35. In 42 Up, she was a struggling, single mother with a son and daughter from her marriage. But she had met a new man. 42 Up asks if Sue has finally found a stable life with Glen.
