Playing House with debt
There is this interesting American term called “Playing House”. It has two meanings. Either a couple pretending to be settled, married and living together when in fact they are anything but. Lana del Rey has a beautiful song about this meaning (her evocation of the 1950s and 1960s fits this article as well). The second one means kids playing adults. Pretending to be a couple, cooking, having their dog as a kid or things like that.
