Candice DeLong, 67, Married And Separated! Personal Life Status Now

Candice Delong had a successful career working for the FBI as a criminal profiler, where she served for nearly two decades. Candice who is often considered as real-life Clarice Starling from the movie Silence of the Lambs has worked on some high profile cases throughout her career. 

However, being a law enforcement officers has it's own setbacks, as it is likely for the people in this profession to face difficulty in maintaining personal relationships since they may have to work at odd hours and are around criminals most of the time.

But was that the reason behind Candice's failed married life? You are about to find out!

Candice's Personal Life: Married Woman With Law Graduate Son

Candice, who worked as a psychiatric nurse at Northwestern University Hospital in Chicago, Illinois before joining the FBI, is raising a child as a single mother after divorcing her husband whose identity is still under wraps.

Though the details of both her marriage and divorce remain confined, Candice often talks about her son Seth who is a law school graduate. Candice, 67 has even expressed, of Seth having troubles after watching Deadly Women.

Furthermore, Candice doesn't have much history of dating, as she was busy focussing on her professional career and taking care of her son.

While raising her kid, she taught him some defense mechanisms including locking the windows and doors when no one was home except Seth. The father of her son protested her methods claiming that Candice was trying to promote fearfulness and paranoia in their child. But, she argued that it was common sense as many convicts tried to invade homes without any adult supervision.

 “His father accused me of promoting ‘fearfulness’ but it’s basic common sense. You’d be amazed how many assailants simply waltz into unsecured homes.”

Candice, who has worked in child kidnapping cases, also taught her son some extra techniques to escape from any ongoing abduction. For instance, she told Seth to shout "Fire" instead of "Help" as the former term attracts more attention than the latter one and to make eye contacts with individuals rather than whole crowds.

After Candice split up with her baby's father, she didn't involve in any longterm relationship; however, she revealed of receiving a marriage proposal from a co-worker after her divorce. While Candice was working in the San Francisco field office in late 1990's, she was tasked with surveilling the cabin of the infamous Unabomber, Theodore Kaczynski along with a fellow agent, who had apparently fallen in love with her and wanted Delong to marry him. Although she considered it initially, it didn't work out later.

Later in 2001, she came forth admitting that her latest boyfriend then was also an FBI agent. However, nothing more about their relationship later surfaced in the media. 

Meanwhile, the current relationship status of Candice remains concealed, as she hasn't been recently tagged along with a possible boyfriend, neither has she talked about her love life in the social media or interviews. In addition, Candice is a fan of drag queens and considers them a source of entertainment in her otherwise monotonous work-life. So, this could also be a reason she is not dating.
