Splitwise has some basic support for this now, depending on what you’re looking for. We now support multiple email addresses for a single account, so you can more easily share one account with multiple people.
However, we won’t automatically adjust how much you should owe as a “couple”. For example, if “Bob” adds an expense with “Sue and John’s Couple Account”, then the bill will be split 50/50 between those two Splitwise accounts. I can definitely see how it would be useful to automatically make Sue and John pay for 2 shares, but we’re unlikely to add that feature in the near future. For now, you can still work around this by manually using the “Split by shares” option when adding a bill, and assigning 2 shares to the relevant account.Anonymous supported this idea ·Anonymous commented
Ok... so having just been through this I found a work around
Easiest solution i can think of is run all members of the group as individual accounts during the trip but at the end you can effectively transfer the obligations of the dormant partner to the paying partner by adding an entry where the dormant partner makes a payment to paying partner for the total of all of their payments due to all members.
Can be done either as a payment or a bill entry as the dormant partner paying but the 'split between' name solely being the paying partner.
This leaves the dormant partner as settled and the paying partner now with the net obligations.
You will have to do this for each of any multicurrency balances to transfer each.
Do have 'simplify payments' switched in though.
That worked perfectly for me.Anonymous commented

This allows for individuals being separately represented for drinks/ meals if not there as a couple but grouped for settlement.
