To dream that you commit adultery, foretells that you will be arranged for some illegal action.
If a woman has this dream, she will fail to hold her husband’s affections, letting her temper and spite overwhelm her at the least provocation.
If it is with her husband’s friend, she will be unjustly ignored by her husband.
Her rights will be cruelly trampled upon by him.
If she thinks she is enticing a youth into this act, she will be in danger of desertion and divorced for her open intriguing.
For a young woman this implies abasement and low desires, in which she will find strange adventures afford her pleasure.
Adultery Many people seem to have dreams about committing adultery or about their spouse committing adultery (cheating or being cheated on).
In this dictionary there is a definition for cheating and here I will add a few more thoughts about this dream topic.
Many dreams come from the private unconscious and are a reflection on thoughts, fears, desires, issues or are a response to stressful or anxiety provoking situations.
The details of the dream need to be considered before attempting an interpretation.
Details such as who is cheating on whom and what are the circumstances surrounding this dream event, need to be established.
At times people have dreams about cheating on their spouses as a response to a long and monogamous relationship.
The dream may be a compensation for boredom, monotony or unhappiness.
On the other hand, the dream could be about you connecting to deeper parts of self, which is represented by a desirable person of the opposite sex.
On rare occasions a person may suspect, or feel on some level, that their mate is not faithful but is not willing to admit this consciously.
Thus, in the dream state the individual confronts his fears and from there may begin to deal with the situation on a conscious level.
“The dream reveals the reality which conception lags behind.” Franz Kafka
