Twenty Percent: That’s The Percentage Of Women Who Dream About Their Spouses Cheating

dream cheatingMost of us have been there before. You awake in a cold sweat from a dream that seemed so real. In it, your spouse was getting their groove on with some of the most mind-blowing bedroom antics ever with someone other than you.

There is a temptation when this occurs to be miffed at your spouse when you awaken into the real world. Some may even fear that it’s a sign not all is well in the bedroom of a marriage.

New research from the Ibis hotel company sheds light on this common phenomenon.

The Dreaming Data

According to the study, one in five women — out of a total of 2,000 Brits surveyed — expressed having a dream in which their spouse cheated — 20 percent!

Unfortunately, Ibis didn’t touch on what the numbers were for men, but it did reveal what the dream likely means for both genders.

According to a statement issued from dream psychologist Ian Wallace, “Dreams where your partner is cheating with someone else suggests that you’re betraying yourself in some way in waking life and need to have far more confidence in your talents and how attractive they appear to the people around you.”

And according to Huffington Post, if you do wake up angry at your partner for having a dream affair, “know that it’s a common reaction.”

“Back in May, researchers from the University of Maryland found that dreams about infidelity, jealousy and other ‘bad’ relationship behavior were associated with greater relationship conflict and reduced intimacy in the days that followed.”

Surprising Takeaways

For us, the real surprise of the Ibis survey was that dream infidelities have nothing to do with trouble in the bedroom and more to do with self-esteem.

Also, we were a little surprised that the number of women who have this dream was so high, especially given the gain in confidence that women have experienced with relationships over the years. As of October 2013, 40 percent of women were the breadwinners in their respective households and more women file for divorce due to expanded opportunities than ever before.

If you’re looking at a do-it-yourself divorce, let us know how we can help today. DIY divorce is less costly in time, money, and frustration. Whatever you decide, best of luck!
