Your partner's self-controlling behaviour may play a role in your decision making process, a new study has found.

The research found that in a partnership where both people have high self-control levels tend to make better decisions such as saving money, or buying healthier foods as compared to couples who have low self-control levels, News.com.au reported.

Researchers explained that the person with high self-control cares more about not rocking the boat and maintaining peace in the relationship, so they're willing to go along with the less-wise decisions.

The study suggested that the safest route to a successful relationship for higher self-control individuals is to find the partner with the same capacity.

However, higher self-control individuals should be cautious of partnering with low self-control individuals because the probability is that their tendency to engage in pro-relationship behaviours may negate their innate advantages in pursuing long-term goals.
