A dream about getting a divorce can symbolize a desire for change or a need to separate yourself from a certain situation or relationship in your waking life. That's the simplest answer.

It's not necessarily about a marital relationship, but could be about a job, friendship, or habit. A dream about someone else going through a divorce might indicate your concern for that person's wellbeing, or it could reflect your own fears and insecurities about relationships. It's important to remember that dreams are highly personal and their interpretations can vary greatly depending on the individual's experiences and emotions.

A divorce can often be a complex dream object to to give you a single interpretation of. To know without any doubts, I would have to get to know the dreamer's background and current life scenario.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of divorce, Freud would suggest, is an unconscious manifestation of ambivalence towards a significant relationship or situation, not necessarily matrimonial.

Also: It signifies the ego's struggle to disengage from a conflicting id or superego demand. Conversely, witnessing someone else's divorce in a dream might symbolize your own latent anxieties about commitment or separation, projected onto another. It could also be an empathetic response, reflecting your subconscious concern for their emotional state. Remember, dreams are the royal road to the unconscious, a personal narrative woven from the fabric of our individual psyches. Thus, interpretation must always consider the unique tapestry of the dreamer's experiences and emotions.

Dreaming of a divorce signifies a spiritual call for liberation from a situation or relationship that no longer serves your higher self. It's a divine nudge to reassess your life's path and realign with your true purpose. It's not necessarily about a marital bond, but could be any aspect of your life that needs transformation. Witnessing someone else's divorce in a dream, by contrast, is a spiritual mirror reflecting your own fears and insecurities about relationships or commitments. It could also be a sign of your empathetic connection with that person, indicating a need to offer support or understanding. Remember, dreams are divine messages, guiding us towards our spiritual growth and evolution.
