in sickness and in health

One of you is sick as a couple:
"Oh, honey, you relax. What do you need? I will run to the drugstore as soon as I get you settled."

Both of you are sick as a couple:
"Ok. If you heat the soup, I will take care of the dishes. Everything else can just wait."

One of you is sick as parents:
"Honestly, I get that you are sick. I do. But if I am taking care of the baby, taking care of you, AND taking care of the cooking and the house, then you have to go upstairs. Seeing you lying on the couch flipping through the channels while I am running around like a crazy person makes me want to stab you in the eye."

Both of you are sick as parents:
"I am calling your mother."
