The theme of marriage in a dream is often a sign of wish-fulfillment.

A marriage in our waking life is a symbol of a new beginning, and this is often what marriage in your dream means as well.

Dreaming About Getting Married

While a dream about marriage may appear to be some deep and secret love for someone you know or are dating, this symbol actually means something very different.

Marriage represents transitions and harmony. So it is more representative of changing things in your relationships and friendships in your waking life. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you are breaking up with someone or experiencing something negative, this can also signify strengthening bonds or changing the manner of your relationship.

While this dream is often associated with real-life anxiety or fear, marriage in your dream is a wake-up call that will foretell a transition for the better. Things are about to balance themselves out and reach a point of harmony and balance in the very near future.

This dream appears when friends become lovers, lovers quarrel, or even a marriage proposal.

Dreaming About Asking Someone To Marry You

Are you the one proposing or initiating the marriage?

You may need to be the one that makes a bold move in your life in order to initiate this cycle of harmony and balance.

Marriages are about transitions and new beginnings. So if you see this experience in your dream, know that transitions and new beginnings in your waking life will unfold in the near future and it is up to you to get things running.

Details, timing, seasons, and feelings will all help you determine when and how this will happen. Pay attention to as many details as you can in your dream to uncover how this marriage will manifest in your waking life.

Dreaming of Someone Else Getting Married

If it is not you getting married in your dream, then you may be attending a wedding in your waking life in the near future. Or simply you are feeling jealous or envious of another person and it is manifesting in your dream world.

In such instances, this type of dream can be prophetic!

This type of dream can also indicate that you are watching others around you go through new chapters in their lives and you feel left out in some way. It is important to assess your waking life with this type of dream as it can point to a lack of satisfaction with your own.

Dreaming About Marrying A Stranger/They Give You A Ring

If you do not recognize the person asking you to marry you and they give you a ring, this can represent a situation in your waking life concerning a commitment that you have been asked to make.

It could indicate a job offer, for example, and your reaction to the ring in your dream highlights how you feel about making this commitment.

This type of dream highlights the uncertainty or fear you have a surrounding commitment in general so it is important to do inner work in waking life to understand why you have a fear of commitment.

As well as highlighting a situation, this type of dream can also indicate your sense of self at a deeper level. It could be highlighting two different aspects of your personality that you are not in harmony with. This type of dream indicates that these opposing forces within you need to be reconciled in order for you to reach your full potential.
