"I don't think my wife would agree to that."

Sounds to me like someone might be trying to hook you up or infer a mutual interest between new boss and you. Play the wife card.

I agree that your second point is possible (either as a joke or as someone who loves drama0, but if that's the case, the first line could be construed as "I'd love to have an affair with boss, but my wife won't let me."

Personally, I'd just say, "But coworker, what's closer? My place on X Street, or your place on Y Drive? It sounds like she should stay with you!"

Not to be paranoid but if there was something malicious in co workers suggestion(I think she was just trying to make you feel awkward with is a bit of malicious humor but not muuuhhhaahha maliciuos)  "my wife wouldn't like that."  could also turn into " Dave is nice but is wife is jealous psycho. Who is extremely worried about boss."
