Love is coming your way


Dreams present symbols and metaphors rather than showing literal events. So in dreams, "marriage" can represent any type of public commitment, from signing a contract to hiring a new employee to enlisting in the military. Alternatively, the dream could be wish-fulfillment, allowing the dreamer to experience something wonderful yet rather threatening while in the security of sleep.


It depends if your dream was a happy or scary one. if it was happy, then you may be wanting to settle down and if it was a scary one, it may be suggesting a fear of commitment.

This most likely is a wish-fulfillment dream, allowing the dreamer to experience something desired while in the security of sleep. Alternatively, if the dream is frightening, it expresses one's fear of settling down or reluctance to leave behind youthful freedom.


In dreams, marriage is a metaphor representing a public commitment. For example, if you are planning on signing an important legal contract, you might dream about marriage, which is a similar legal commitment. Other examples might be committing oneself by taking out a student loan, joining the military or hiring an employee. Any publicly announcement of a long-term promise or commitment might be represented in dreams by marriage.
