Husband Goes Back To His Ex Wife
My husband gets back together with his ex wife
My sister in law had this dream, not me.
My sister in law was getting married at the family home and my husband is there with his ex wife. My sister in law asks my husband why the ex there and wants to know where I am; she is angry. The ex acts as if she owns the house but whenever my husband is around she acts weepy and upset. My mother in law looks ticked off but doesn't say anything.
My sister in law takes my husband's phone and calls me; I'm stuck at work and ask how the wedding went and say I’m sorry I couldn't be there. She's crying and asks where I am and tells me the ex wife is there; I'm shocked at the news. My husband takes the phone and says he's coming to see me and brings his ex wife. We meet, after which my phone is switched off and no one can locate me. My husband and ex wife return to the family home and continue as if nothing happened. They sit at the dining table with my sister in law who fights with my husband. He says "Did you think I'd forget the mother of my children?"
I felt hurt when I heard the dream, as if it was about me.
Main Life Issues:
My sister-in-law is divorced but seeing someone, has kids and is currently fighting her ex husband who has remarried, for custody. She has had a couple of dreams about my husband and his ex getting back together.
When someone reconciles with an ex it creates grief around them and a lot of push pulls and negative feedback from others.
Getting married: Making a commitment or a long-term responsibility; a reference to dreamer’s custody battle.
Ex acting as if in charge: Someone acting high and mighty; suggests that may be dreamer’s stance in custody negotiations.
Angry phone discussions with relatives: Mirrors family conflicts and anger that adds fuel to the divorce dispute.
Phone switched off: Communications that end badly when two people meet; indicates that dreamer’s anger about the ex’s new wife may be creating communication barriers.
Sister-in-law phones me: Looking for answers and support.
Ex honors mother of his children: Suggests an amicable agreement can be reached between husband and wife in custody battle if wife (the dreamer) can put her anger aside.
What the dream Means:
Your sister-in-law’s dreams are about her, not you. In her dreams, you are a symbol of her. It is hard to see self in a negative light in some dreams, we “switch people” and let others represent us , as a way to get a look at oneself without feeling threatened.
The dream is about the custody fight you sister in law is having with her ex and points out several things. One is that others are giving their two cents worth which is making matters worse; they should work it out with each other and stop listening to those around them. Second, the words “I would not forget the mother of my children” tells her that her ex still honors her and if she would reach out to him as a friend, they could reach an agreement.
Bottom Line: In most dreams, people in a dream represent traits of the dreamer. Her dreams are not about you and do not predict anything about you or your marriage; they are about your sister-in-law. This dream tells her to let go of anger which interferes with working out a custody agreement.
Thank you so much! I'm relieved it isn't about me and glad there is something she might be able to do to help her situation.
