Sue's husband, Harry, was one of his best friends since his divorce with Renée. Charlie remained single after his divorce, claiming he had not found the right girl, but years later, after the death of Harry Clearwater, found more than a friend in Sue Clearwater. Charlie visited Renée and Bella once every summer while Bella was growing up. His daughter married Edward Cullen, a vampire, at age 18, and gave birth to his hybrid granddaughter, Renesmee, before becoming a vampire herself.

On Christmas, Sue and her family spend it at Charlie's house, along with Bella, Edward, Jacob, and Renesmee. However, as their relationship improves, Charlie's friendship with Billy Black, his best friend, begins to waver. At the end of the series, Bella realizes that Charlie will no longer be alone, thanks to Sue.
