Thanks for the suggestion and feedback! I’m sorry for any confusion.
I’ll leave this under review for now.

There is another reason for making this change, and perhaps going a bit further. We had a member who instead of selecting "record a cash payment" to indicate they had paid an expense, deleted the original expense. Yes, even though there is a warning that says "Are you sure you want to delete this expense? This will completely remove this expense for ALL people involved, not just you.". But people don't read! So a more apparent icon would potentially lead to less accidents.

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.

It would be great to associate a couple in a group such that if they owe each other $ it treats it differently. Probably different options, but one that comes to mind is when using simplify debt, and they owe each other the same $ but no one else does (A owes $X, B is owed $X, A & B are a couple, no one else owes or is owed), that it does NOT highlight the $ they owe each other so that the group admin doesn't continue seeing that highlighted and think he needs to take action. In my case, I am a landlord and admin of a group, and I have a couple as tenants, and sometimes one will pay and sometimes the other will pay fo rent, security deposit, utilities, etc. Thanks!
Also, perhaps, updating the message in case someone thinks deleting the expense is the method to indicate you paid it.
"Are you sure you want to delete this expense? This will completely remove this expense for ALL people involved, not just you. If you are attempting to indicate that you already paid your share of the expense, please go to Settle Up > Record a Cash Payment."
