There are a few topics that we've been conditioned to think are off-limits at the dinner table: religion, sex and money are at the top of the list.
But when it comes to money, a whole lot of us shy away from talking about it — with not just acquaintances at a party but the most important people in our lives.
According to LearnVest's 2017 Money Habits and Confessions Survey, one in five Americans never have a serious discussion about finances with their partner. What's more, a recent survey from TIAA found that just 11 percent of parents are likely to start a convo about money with their adult kids.
"Most of us learn our money habits from our parents, and more often than not, there can be negativity around money," says Sallie Krawcheck, co-founder and CEO of Ellevest, an investment platform geared towards women.
