“I had a dream about getting married!” A dream about marriage can speak about a union, partnership, or a committed emotional or loving relationship. The context from which marriage is viewed speaks to the health and strength of the relationship and between those involved. It can be your existing marriage, a relationship to another person or situation to which you are tied or committed. People can be married to their jobs or other non-personal things. In any case, it speaks to the commitment of time the person spends at a location or participating in an activity.
Getting Married has Different Meanings
If you dream that you plan to enter into a marriage with another person, it means you desire to work together in a significant way. You see yourself joined with another in a common goal. The harmony and the strength of the marriage represented in the dream reflect the harmony and the strength of the union in your waking life.
If you dream your marriage is in trouble, consider whether or not the other person represents a business partner is an actual love relationship. This says which relationship needs to be examined. If you dream of marriage counseling you have decided you are willing to try to mend the relationship. You may decide ultimately of divorce and that the marriage is not salvageable.
If you dream of a happy, healthy marriage this indicates that your relationship or your business venture with your business partner is going well and you are pleased with the situation. If you dream that your marriage is on the rocks, it can mean difficult times are ahead.
Problems of Infidelity and Trust
When you dream of infidelity in a marriage, this can mean that you do not trust the other person in the relationship. If it is a business partnership you may think your colleague is doing things behind your back and putting the business in jeopardy. If you dream your husband or wife is cheating on you, this speaks to your own self-doubt and self-confidence concerning your perceived attractiveness to the other person. You may believe unconsciously that you are not good enough or do not deserve to have a happy relationship. This dream can also be prophetic. It may be that in your dream state you are putting together clues of the infidelity that may have slipped by your conscious mind. Your partner may indeed be cheating.
If you are the person that is unfaithful to the marriage bed it indicates that you are secretly sabotaging the relationship because on some level you are dissatisfied with the current marriage relationship. You may be experiencing guilt for being untrue to your marriage. This is especially true if you dream of being caught.
If you dream you are married to your work or to a sport, this means that your level of commitment is very high. If you are happy in this situation, it means that even though it requires a lot of time, the payoffs are worth the effort. If you see the commitment to say a job as taxing and hurting other important relationships such as your marriage to your husband and wife, this would indicate you need to perhaps re-evaluate your priorities.
