[30:50] What makes a good relationship? Jade believes the important components include communication, compromise, learning to encourage each other, and enjoying each other's company.
[36:21] In addition to Jade's suggestion, Deniece adds the role of mutual respect and understanding, especially when it comes to guys. Understanding your partner's love language and yours is also key, and there are 5 main love languages. Remaining independent, particularly with self-development is another beneficial component, rather than letting the attributes that define your identity get lost in the relationship.
