Chicagoans date longer and wed later than they used to, a UofC sociology study reports. We're also more suspicious of our partner's fidelity. And, not surprisingly, we tend to be insular in terms of where we find our mate(s): People who live in Lincoln Park are more likely to date someone who also lives in Lincoln Park -- as opposed to, say, Hyde Park.
