A dream about divorce does not necessarily mean that you have to start contacting solicitors and clearing out your spouse’s half of the wardrobe. Rather, divorces in dreams can reflect the fact that you might be experiencing stress in your waking life, or that you are allowing your problems to take over so much that they feel like they are part of you. They can also mean drastic changes – but not necessarily the bad kind. You might be about to experience an entirely new and exciting rebirth!
If you are having this particular dream, it may be time to have a sort through your priorities, and work out what is working for you and what isn’t.
What You'll Learn Today
Dream about spouse cheating and divorce
If you have been dreaming about your spouse cheating on you, this is your subconscious’ way of telling you that you are feeling abandoned in your waking life. You may be feeling as though you have no control or say in the relationship, which is leading you to feel as though you are waiting on a commitment from the one who is supposed to be your rock throughout everything that life decides to hurl at you.
Another interpretation of this particular dream is that you yourself are unsatisfied in your relationship, so you dream that your significant other is doing the dirty so that you have an excuse to exit the relationship without feeling like you have done wrong. Which is it? Only you know.
The only way to take positivity from this sort of dream is to sit down with your significant other, and talk openly and honestly about your feelings, their feelings, and your shared goals and ambitions. You can tell them what you have been dreaming too – just be prepared for them to laugh at it!
Dream about signing divorce papers
Signing divorce papers can signify a loss, and that you may feel you have missed out on something significant in your life – as you may feel if you have actually gone through a divorce. Divorces are often traumatic and can make people feel as though they have failed in life; despite the fact that it can be a good thing to move on from something that was not working for either party.
Dreaming about signing divorce papers could also symbolize you being free from something that was never right for you in the first place. A divorce can be incredibly freeing, liberating and empowering. It can get you out of a situation in which you felt controlled, unhappy or even abused.
If you are dreaming about a divorce – even if you have never been married -this could be your subconscious telling you that you need to let certain things go. Drop the things that will never serve you, that are holding you back, that are not the way you want your life to be going. You will probably find that you will be vast amounts happier when you do!
Dream about parent’s divorce
Parents represent our rocks; the part of our life that are always there. Whether or not they are divorced in real life, parents in our subconscious show up our feelings of family, togetherness, security and well being.
If you are dreaming that your parents are divorcing – regardless of how their relationship is in the waking world, this can show up your own feelings of the fear of change.
Divorce in dreams represents a shake up of old beliefs; a letting go of the past and what no longer serves you, as well as a separation of yourself from old habits that no longer serve your life as well as they used to.
Dream about husband wanting divorce
This dream relates to your feelings of security, both in life in general – and in your relationship. We all know that feelings for people change over time, and that worrying about your partner leaving you for someone else is a natural fear. But what if it spills over into your dreams? Surely this is a sign that you will soon be hitting the dating sites, right?
Well, not necessarily. Dreaming about your husband wanting divorce do not mean that he is about to contact solicitors and get the ball rolling – rather, it represents your own feelings of being left out, abandoned and alone.
If you are having these dreams it is definitely worth trying to rise above those fears and feelings that he is going to do a moonlight flit, and focus instead on your own life. How comfortable do you feel about being on your own? Do you feel like you are up to the task of facing life as a whole person, rather than one half of a couple?
If you are dreaming of your spouse cheating and you wake up in the morning feeling upset, concerned for the future and uncertain in yourself, the thing you should NOT do is seek reassurance. What you need to do is sort your own life out. You know they love you, so stop being so timorous! Get out there and live your own life for yourself! You can still enjoy life with your partner, but you really need to have some time and hobbies and activities that are just for you.
Dream about divorce and remarriage
If you dream of divorce and remarriage, this is a sure sign that you are yearning for something new in your waking life. Do you feel as though you want to shake up your current situation? Is there something that is holding you back? Do you feel you would be better off alone? Do you just need some space?
You may be subconsciously feeling as though you want to take a deep breath, forget the past and start over. Divorce and remarriage in a dream represents your desire to start again.
Whatever reason this dream is intruding in your sleeping hours for is a good enough reason to stop, take stock of your life and do the best that you can to get in back on track.
