Abstract: Purpose: Neighborhood-level disadvantage is an influential context for adolescent sexual risk behaviors, yet little is known about how this same context of disadvantage may impact the characteristics of romantic relationships that precede and organize sexual decision-making. Since many partners are met through neighborhood networks, differing levels of neighborhood disadvantage may impact the developmental trajectory of relationship attributes over time.
