chris was not happy in act 1 as he was not pleased with his profession and he did not earn much money from it.it was the reason for his troubles with his wife SUE as she was so materialistic and she loves money.she was also unrespectable to her husband and she used to treat him in a rough way and make fun of him infront of the neighbours and this happened when she told him "Mrs Adams is on the phone,you dog".she was also jealous from his patients,when she told him about Mrs Adams "I can smell her perfume over the phone "

"She sounds likeshe is in terriblepain -unlessher mouth is full of candy"
