These days marriage is not as important to people as it used to be.
Many people nowadays decide living together without “tying the knot” because they value more the harmony and the good vibes that exist between them and their partners than they care about a signature on a lousy contract if the marriage partner turns out to be an unsatisfactory deal.
Still, marriage will never get out of fashion and many people (especially women) spend their entire youth dreaming about that perfect day when they will become someone’s wife or husband.
Dreams about marriage are common dream subject. There are many reasons that can inspire such dreams.
People who aren’t married yet tend to dream about marriage usually as a result of the pressure they subconsciously feel for not being married yet.
Many people, especially women who expect their partners’, to propose to them tend to dream about marriage often.
Also, people who are about to get married might be prone to dreaming such dreams as a result of the preparations and anticipation of that day.
Sometimes dreams about marriage aren’t related to any real feelings or expectations regarding the marriage of the person having such a dream.
Whatever the reason for having this dream might be, we can’t help but wonder whether the dream we just had about getting married or marriage related things is a good or a bad sign.
