Getting Married Or Divorced

When you dream about getting married or divorced, you are considering a major decision or commitment in your waking life. Marriage symbolizes the successful union of two opposites and this dream suggests that you are trying to marry two quite different aspects of your life together. It may be that you want to start a family and are thinking about how you can balance this with your work obligations.

It might also reflect that you have taken on an additional commitment in your current job and are deciding how to integrate it with what you do already. Although you know that this arrangement should work in theory, you realize you will have to walk a fine line in order to make it work in practice.

If you are feeling pushed or pressured into marriage then it usually indicates that you are putting yourself under a lot of pressure to accommodate these new commitments. Even though you are privately anxious about the impending workload, you put on a brave face and assure everyone that you can cope with it.

Not knowing the identity of the bride or groom suggests you are unsure what you are really committing yourself to, and that you doubt that you will have much time for yourself if you take on these commitments. Dreaming of a divorce suggests that you feel you are committing too much time and effort into a particular obligation in waking life and you want to stop because it is really throwing your life off balance.

The message from this dream is that you are trying to balance your commitments and honour the promises you have made to other people. It can be difficult to service all these obligations and it can become very easy for you to start to feel out of balance.

Rather than becoming overly concerned about your commitments to others, spend some time thinking about your obligations to yourself. The more you can balance your needs and ambitions, the easier it will be for you to acknowledge the compromises you might need to make with other people.

One of the biggest decisions a person can make in their life is to commit to a lifelong partnership with their significant other, and so getting married has come to symbolize making a deep and long-term commitment.

Marriage is a blessing, and a source of great strength and comfort, but it also can be an area of compromise where we try and balance our needs with the needs of another in a mutual loving partnership.

This conjugal relationship becomes a mutually powerful merging of needs and interests, but when these can no longer be met, it can end in divorce.
