Ever since my husband and I have gotten married I’ve had a weird dream over and over again where I was cheating on him, with him. Like I would sleep with him and have a guilty conscience because I cheated on him? It’s been really confusing. But my husband has been having a pretty good laugh about it.

LauriWell, I don’t blame him. It seems rather pointless and counterproductive, doesn’t it? But I assure you, the dream does have a point and once you understand the point of the dream you will find it to be very productive.

So let’s start with the guilt. Any emotion felt in a dream is directly connected to something that is causing that same emotion in real life. What have you been feeling guilty about lately in regards to your marriage?

In the dream the guilt is caused by cheating on your husband. Cheating dreams are common and are often caused by something in the marriage that feels like a third wheel such as having to spend too much time at work or a new baby… something that takes your attention away from your partner and that you realize, deep down, may be a problem.

However, in your cheating dream you are cheating on your husband with your husband. That tells me there is something in regards to your husband that you are feeling guilty about. My first thought is that, now that you are married, perhaps he seems different to you in some way and the husband you are cheating on him with is the ideal of him… and you feel bad about that. Put on your thinking cap and see if you can pin point how he has two aspects to his personality. Hopefully the difference isn’t as vast as Jekyll and Hyde.

If this sounds right to you, then your dream is bringing this to your attention so you can work on helping him balance. If not, then these dreams are just a reminder of the fact that, even though he may be grouchy or short-tempered or whatever from time to time, you still love him and find him sexy as hell!
