And that is one of the reasons why I don't tell my husband ALL my dreams (I do tell him most) because there is no point in "irritating" or upsetting him with such things like dreaming about my ex, which happens every now and then.

I dream of the past often, whether it's being with my ex, or wandering the streets of my childhood home. The dreams about my ex are usually crazy...like, I'll be making dinner (in the dream) and realize I'm still with him, and then, get quite upset. Or, I'll wake up, roll over to give my hubby a kiss, and realize I'm lying in bed with my ex. The dreams mean nothing to me. Just my subconscious messing with me.
There could be many reasons why she has those dreams. Like her fear of something getting in the way of your relationship.
I wouldn't worry too much. She'll probably have those dreams 10 years from now. One learns to deal with them. They're annoying, but they're just dreams.
Just wait until she starts telling you dreams she's having about you leaving her, or cheating on her (which, in my case, are a fear of abandonment).
