Why You Shouldn't Date Lazy People
Do you and your partner share similar habits? New research finds that couples with mismatched levels of self-control and motivation will adopt the habits of the person with less of each.
To find this, researchers studied a number of married couples, and found those who had mismatched levels of self-control were more likely to become fat and fall into debt. On the other hand, couples who were matched had impressive levels of self-control, ate healthy diets and saved their money.
One researcher says, "Maintaining the relationship is more important for the high self-control partner than sticking to their guns. As a result, mismatched couples may end up with worst long-term health and financial outcomes than they may expect."
