      Question Divorce + elevator? Help much appreciated!

      I've been trying, without luck, to figure out the meaning of a dream my husband had the other night...

      In the dream we mutually decided to take a break from our marriage. However, he quickly changed his mind and asked me to come back. I refused his offer and left him for good. The next thing that happened was me ascending in a lift with a group of people he didn't recognise. He told me the dream was extremely vivid, which never happens to him.

      Any takes on what this dream could mean? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

      Although in order to provide a more accurate interpretation it would usually be best to have some general background information about you and your husband (and a description of events just before the dream), a few ideas can be tried out to see if they might fit your situation.

      Just to start off by mentioning that the image of you in the dream can symbolize the outer you, or your husband’s so-called inner “feminine” side, or it can be some kind of combination of both.

      If we take the dream to be mostly about his inner self and not about his relationship with you per se, the question becomes “What attitude of his does the dream want to point out in order that he can improve it?”

      In the dream, a mutual decision is made to take a temporary break from the marriage.

      If we take the “marriage” in the dream as being symbolic of “being united and dedicated to something important”, this suggests the idea that a vital issue in your husband’s current situation is being dealt with by the dream, perhaps mostly related to his feeling life, deep values and strong emotions etc.

      In the dream, your husband quickly changed his mind about the temporary break and wanted you back.

      Again, if we take the “relationship” in the dream to be about the one to his own emotions, values, sensitivity and overall receptivity etc., then it’s possible there was a fairly substantial, recent upset of some kind related to this area of his life.

      However, although he should have looked at this carefully and taken stock as it were (e.g. taken a break from the marriage), it could be that, like many men, he understandably prefers to avoid this type of reflection about feelings, and maybe just wants to kind of muddle through relationships with others as well as the feelings he has about himself (e.g. quickly wants the break to end).

      In this way of looking at his dream, it could be saying that this type of attitude could potentially cause a very damaging “split” (e.g. a divorce) between his conscious attitude and underlying and largely undeveloped emotions and values etc. which might not be able to weather difficult challenges and unexpected setbacks etc.

      The image of you then ascending in the lift with a group of unknown people might symbolize the idea that his feeling life per se will “disappear” up into the “airy realms of logic and thought” where it will continue to exist but perhaps with a sort of hostile attitude towards him.

      If so, in a practical way, this could come out in the appearance of one or more unpleasant physical and/or psychological symptoms from a choice of endless possibilities.

      For example, a person could feel down too often or become ill more often than usual etc.

      The very painful subject of the dream and the fact that it was unusually vivid points to its importance.

      The way it ended is probably saying something like “So this is the way things are. What are you going to DO about it?”

      Anyway as mentioned, without knowing anything about you or your husband, this way of looking at his dream might not fit the actual situation very well, but I hope these ideas can be helpful in some way.

      Please feel free to ask any questions or to make any comments about this particular way of looking at the dream.

      Maybe he is feeling like you are on different paths and he is afraid. He sees you as progressing in life and and perhaps he feels stagnant.
