Can I be unfaithful in deams?

When a person is in a relationship and dreams of meeting and dating people other then his or her companion, is it a sign that this person has unresolved issues? Is this a common type of dream?


Certainly, one does not exercise one’s free will while asleep. So one cannot be unfaithful to another regardless of whatever one dreams. But dreams of unfaithfulness could indicate any number of things. If this is a reoccurring dream, you might want to get some professional help to understand what is really going on.
