Marriage Dream Meaning and Interpretations


“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.

Dream about getting marriedIf 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.

Additional Marriage Dream Interpretations

Dreaming of marriage symbolizes new important phases in your life. It can mean harmony and commitment to making new transitions. You may be transforming your old life into something new. It can also signify uniting two sides of yourself that have lived in disharmony for many years.

A marriage proposal can mean that a situation may get worse. A man dreaming of a marriage can mean he has fears of losing his independence. For a woman, it represents a traditional rite of passage. Dreaming of marrying an ex-partner suggests you have learned from past mistakes. It can also indicate that your current relationship resembles some parts of your former relationship with your ex. Seeing this reminds you of past mistakes. Beware, or you can make them again.

Seeing yourself in an arranged marriage indicates you are being forced into something against your will. This may be something as simple as a new phase of your life beginning, but you hold onto the past. Do you feel you do not have a voice in some situations?

  1. I dreamt of getting married to a new person that i don’t yet know but it felt like i didn’t know them enough. I tried to run because i was undecided but my mother and then her found me and consoled me which made it a little better before the actual wedding day started my ex showed up and it was like a breath of fresh air. Her smile and familiarity gave me what i needed to marry the other person and once married by the other persons. Their touch relayed that we were ok but not a deep love like what i had with my ex.

    I am not married yet or even have a plan to be in the near future but it is something I’ve always wanted?
    What does this mean

  2. I’ve dreamt of marryibg my boyfriend. While i was about to walk down the aisle i saw two girls who were attending my wedding flirting with my boyfriend. I got so angry from that scene and fought those two girls. So then, the wedding ceremony is done i was jumpi g for happiness but i couldnt see where my boyfiend is and i also didnt see myself walk down the aisle just automatically says wedding ceremony is done and we are officially married. So after thr wedding, my father drove me and my younger sister to home, but on the me and my younger sister felt so nervous, I asked my father to drove slow, he said ok but later on again it went fast, that sCene was cut and i found myself getting out of the car asking people if they have seen my husband/boyfriend that i just married. Someone told me to in the club area and that they were having a boys night with his friends. When i heard that i hurriedly run to the direction where he told me, i felt so betrayed, cheated and hurt. My sister and me sneak out to the hole in that club’s door. I saw there they put all the chairs and tables on each side of the space, many girls around and in front there is a stage, a gay who’s hosting the event is there, they are asking a bait or a money how much would one of those girls would cost to take them home. then i saw my boyfriend standing next to the girls, laughing and having fun. I got so pissed off, i ran to the girl who was wearing red tube top and grab her hair and pull her down, she was the same girl who went to stage with my boyfriend touching him. I was crying facing my boyfriwnd who i just married on that same day, i told him ” why did you do this to me?” “why are you hurting me this way?”
    He answered:
    “what arenyou doing here?” “you’re not supposed to be in here”
    But i didnt answer him. I didnt listen to him, I see myselft crying so hard. I angrily told him “where are your good friends huh? Its their idea, its because of them why youre doing this”

    He said: “no, if i remember i’m also responsible for this”

    Then i contradict what he said saying “noo!! I know you, if only youre not with your friends you wouldnt do this to me cause nobody would give this kind of idea to you” i cant handle the pain im feeling so i woke up and my boyfriend is not around. I feel so weird. Scared. And in so much pain.
