Do bad dreams temporarily affect your relationship?

    Do you find that if one of you has a bad or troublesome dream, maybe one in which your spouse behaved in a hurtful way, that it affects how you think and feel until the dream dissipates?

    My DH had a disturbing dream last night (he didn’t tell me any more than that) and I could tell this morning that something “I” did in his dream upset him. He’s not angry; it’s more like he feels hurt or sad. He didn’t have time to talk about it this morning, and usually the phenomenon is brief. It happens every couple months or so.

    It has happened to me before, although very seldom.

    Do you dream about each other? How does it affect your waking hours?

      I had a dream last night (not sexual at all), and I was furious with my husband in the dream because of his choices, and I woke up with those leftover emotions. It’s never fun when dreams make you have to work through negative emotions on something that didn’t actually happen….there’s enough of that IRL. 🙂

        In other words, if you are worried or afraid of losing someone, you will be more likely to have a negative dream about that person in which they leave you or are unfaithful. Dreaming that your partner cheated on you does not make your partner guilty. It only says that you are worried or insecure about the relationship.
