Other people‚Äôs dreams are never interesting‚Ä¶except when they‚Äôre about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. This week, a reader asks Lauri:
I recently divorced my ex-husband after his not being there for me and his children for many years. I also took back my maiden name. The other night I dreamed that he, as a male, was having a baby. What might my dream mean?
Lauri: Deciding to end a marriage is never easy, especially when children are involved.¬† I witnessed my sister struggle with that decision — there was an awful lot of guilt she had to sort through, but ultimately it was the right decision because an unemployed abusive drunk does not a loving father and husband make! ¬†I believe your dream reflects that you made the right decision as well, despite any guilt you may have had.¬† Birth in a dream — no matter who is delivering — always points to a brand new beginning in waking life.
Since your ex is the one birthing the baby, it may be connected to his new life or new attitude.¬† Since you divorced, has he turned things around at all?¬† Does he now seem more attentive as a father?¬† It is also possible that this dream is about YOUR new life that — because of him — you are now able to live.¬† Sometimes we have to go through a hellish situation in order to find ourselves.¬† ¬†That baby just might be YOU!¬† He ‚Äúdelivered you‚ÄĚ from an unhappy marriage so that you can now have ‚Äúa new life.‚ÄĚ¬† Pretty good dream, I‚Äôd say.
