* I will cook and bake for you until I need my hips replaced.

* I will never understand why you loved computer games. I’m so happy you don’t play them anymore.

* I’m sorry darling but the dogs will be allowed in the house (although not on the bed).

* I only want children if they’re your children. Otherwise I’m not particularly interested.
