Hello, I had a dream that I was in my husband’s room and I looked over and saw a girl and guy we both knew making out. My husband left as soon as he saw it. I just sat there, upset he’d gone. When he came back he started yelling at me and saying that he didn’t want to be with me, he didn’t want to touch me. He told me we could still be married but he didn’t want to be physically intimate or emotional with me. He seemed jealous of the other couple. I went on to say then I will go be with someone else. He got mad and slapped me. The couple then stopped making out and the girl told him not to hurt me. It was a horrible dream. My husband has never done anything like what I dreamt, so my dream is confusing and scary. What does it mean??
Lauri:¬†Your husband’s room? As in bedroom? If you two aren’t sharing a room then, odds are, you are missing out on many opportunities for intimacy. Perhaps this works for you. Maybe he’s a snorer, but whatever the case, the marital bed is a very important ingredient to an intimate marriage.
This may be what the other couple in the dream represents, as they were being intimate. They are the “other couple” you guys used to be… or that you want to be. All the anger and the jealousy your husband is showing in your dream is really your anger and jealousy. This is your dream, your creation, therefore your emotions.
Are you mad at yourself? Are you mad at the circumstances of your marriage? Are you feeling more like roommates — not sharing a bedroom, not very emotional or intimate — rather than a married couple? I believe the slap in the dream was a slap in the face from your subconscious; it seems to be trying to slap you into reality that perhaps your marriage needs a some spice and passion.
