@Decca This is reminding me a little bit of David Graeber's Debt, in which he talks about relationships among people who always owe each other a little something. It's like a symbol of friendship/love/family to continually be "in debt" to each other, even the tiniest bit, because to "settle up" means you don't need to interact with that person anymore. Or something.
