This type of dream may also symbolize a desire to leave the relationship and might be more common if you are not happy in your marriage. Take a look at the issues that are causing conflict and reflect upon whether these can be addressed. Try to remember if these issues were prominent in the dream. That will give you more direction on where to go first. Communication is a critical factor in any relationship. If this skill is lacking in your marriage, you may want to seriously consider starting with couples counseling. If you feel that you can communicate with your partner, take some steps in that direction.
Keep in mind that our dreams speak to us in symbols. Dreaming of divorce does not necessarily mean that you should lawyer up! These dreams could simply be a sign that your marriage needs some healing, or just freshening up. The old wise people said that these dreams were a warning to nurture home and family life. Divorce in your dream may also not even pertain to marriage. It can symbolize another "divorce" from something you're unhappy with, such as your job, a habit or behavior.
May all your dreams come true!
