Sometimes, social customs simply bar those curiosity and "critical-thinking" questions which could be interpreted as impolite/rude/offensive.

From an Info Guide for international students:

Some Social Customs
  • It is not usually polite to ask people questions about their income, religion or political preferences.
By common sense, those stuff are usually known. But what troubles me now is that out of curiosity/excitement, I could sometimes forget the boundaries.

About finances, MSN Money has this interesting article:
Don't be gauche: Polite ways to talk money

Agreed. Sometimes you do forget your boundaries.
