Dream Interpretation: My Girlfriend Married an Old Man

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. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

My boyfriend of two years, whom I completely trust, told me that he had a dream where I was married to an old man. However, I went to the bathroom while my old husband was sleeping, and had sex with him (my boyfriend).  What does this mean?  He claims he was “cheating on me with me” which I suppose is a good thing.

Lauri: Okay, this will be fun because his dream is an honest portrayal of his perception of you and the relationship. Let’s see what we can uncover! Being married to an old man in your boyfriend’s dream may actually mean that your boyfriend feels you are somewhat “committed to” or stuck with some issue or element that he feels is starting to get old.  Is there anything you can think of that you do or that is a part of your life that he may be getting tired of?  Or perhaps something that might be wearing you down?

That the old man is sleeping is an important detail.  In your boyfriend’s mind, this old man represents an extension of you therefore he must feel that you are unaware of – or are asleep to – the fact that he is getting tired of this certain element in your life.

You go into the bathroom with your boyfriend because he would like you to cleanse yourself of this issue, behavior or problem.  Upon cleansing yourself or relieving yourself of this element that your BF is growing tired of, he feels he will then have you completely to himself, hence the sex that ensued.  In other words, your boyfriend doesn’t like having to share you with something else.  To him, it is getting old.  Awwww.  I think that’s pretty awesome.
