Lauren[1] was apparently the wife or the girlfriend of Barney Calhoun at the time of the Black Mesa Incident.

In Calhoun's locker is a picture of family members/friends, among them a young woman. This suggests, along with the fact that the Blue Shift manual says "Buy flowers for Lauren,"[1] that Calhoun has a wife or girlfriend (although the locker's pictures are likely of relatives of Gearbox employees).

It is unknown what becomes of Lauren after the events of the Black Mesa Incident, as she is not mentioned at all by Barney Calhoun or anyone else in Half-Life 2 and its Episodes.
