Can you afford not to talk about money?

Talking about money can be difficult and does not come naturally to many of us. To help you get started we have collected 64 thought-starting questions that will help you to have a confident money conversation at every occasion.

Money is a funny thing. The old saying tells us that it can’t buy happiness, but when we’re looking at a stack of bills, holidays we want to plan and what feels like an empty bank account, it’s hard to agree.

Money undeniably causes stress. It contributes to a large chunk of arguments in relationships. And despite its prevalence in our lives, it’s difficult for many people to speak comfortably about it. More than half of the adults in Britain still deem money a taboo subject, with over 28 million saying they would be more confident talking about sex, religion or politics instead. 32% of Brits find talking about money stressful and 43% said it was embarrassing.
