Young adults, aged 16 to 34, ranked a sense of humour as the most important quality in a partner, where as most 55- to 64-year-olds viewed sharing values as more important than sharing a laugh together. Younger people were also more likely to judge potential partners on their looks and perhaps unsurprisingly, more likely to meet their significant other online. What do you think is the most important quality in a partner and how did you meet yours? Please write "NFP" if you don't want your comment to appear in stories.

Members of its youth advisory board, who are aged 14 to 24, are paid $173 per meeting, but a review has recommended the council raise their pay to match the rate of $250 per meeting, that members of other demographic panels get.

Simon Bridges says "The reality is if you're not in work, education or training, you're going to be languishing in a dole queue, and the evidence is potentially for a long time". Do you agree with this policy? Should parents be fined?
