In a world where discussing anal bleaching over cocktails is par for the course, there's only really one topic left that we don't like talking about: Money. Discussing money is awkward, embarrassing and can be pretty tacky. But the truth is, you can't go through your whole adult life without ever discussing the M-word with your partner, and if you're going to do it, you might as well do it right.
