Dream Interpretation: My Fiancé Dreamed He Stabbed Me

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader tells Lauri:

My fiancé dreamed that he stabbed me in front of our kids. What does this mean?

Lauri:  Provided your fiancé does not have a violent background, don’t let this dream worry you. In fact, I think there are two good signs here:

1. The fact that he told you this dream shows that he is honest is with you.

2. The content of this dream shows he has a great deal of concern for you and for the kids.

You see, typically, stabbing in a dream can be connected to verbal anger in real life. Around the time of this dream, do you recall the two of you having an argument, and in particular, do you recall him criticizing you or saying emotionally wounding words to you? We often use the term “cutting remarks” when referring to harsh and painful words. That suggests that he is aware of any emotional pain he may have caused you and since the dream took place in front of your children, he is aware that your arguments may have an impact on them. I also believe it shows a bit of guilt on his part.

So thank him for sharing the dream with you. And I would also recommend that you two make a habit of sharing your dreams with each other every morning. My hubby and I do this over coffee. It’s a great way to start the day because you’ll laugh at the absurdity dreams often provide, and you’ll stay plugged in to each other.
