Few dreams are more traumatic than a dream of your husband dying. When you marry someone, your goal is to spend your entire life together. It is extremely traumatic to even think about your spouse dying, much less to actually experience it. When psychologists rank the most traumatic experiences, the only things that come close to a death are a job loss or a divorce.

The meaning behind this dream depends greatly on what actually happens in your dream and how you feel in your waking life. If you feel like your husband died and it is your fault, it may reflect a sense of guilt over something in your relationship. If you dreamed that you were suddenly told of his death in a horrible accident, it may just represent a fear of all the things that could happen that could hurt your happiness together.

Does It Mean That You Wish Your Husband Would Die?

This is an extremely common question. Luckily, it is rarely the case. Even though you dreamed of your husband dying, you probably do not want him to die. Unless you were celebrating and happy in the dream, the dream is not a sign of what you want.

It is also important to say that the dream is not a sign of what will happen. A dream like this is just a reflection of your subconscious thoughts, fears and desires. It does not show what will happen. While everyone ultimately has to die, it is highly unlikely that your dream is predicting a death in the near future.

A Dream of Your Husband Dying

Once you have looked at exactly what happens in your dream, you can start to consider the different interpretations of the death.

1. You Are Afraid of His Death

This is the most common reason for ad ream of your husband dying. When you love someone greatly, it is only natural to fear losing them. As humans, the fear of death is one of the most strong, primal instincts. We fear losing our loved ones, being alone in the world and having to move on without them.

This is an especially common interpretation if your husband happens to be ill or injured. If he was just in a car accident or is undergoing a major surgery, it will naturally bring up all of there terrible “what-ifs” in your mind. While it is natural to fear the worst in these situations, your dream does not mean that the worst will actually happen.

2. You Are Upset

Sometimes, these dreams are caused by an argument. Most couples have had at least one argument where they wished that they were single again—or, at least, wondered what life would have been like if they stayed single. When you are angry at someone, your mind creates dreams of dying to give you a taste of what life would be like alone. This does not mean that you actually want him to die or that you actually want to leave him. Most likely, it just reflects your anger and displeasure with him in the present moment.

3. You Fear Losing Yourself

When you are in a committed relationship, it changes your personal identity. You do not think of yourself as just an individual anymore. Instead, you have also gained the new role of being a wife and soulmate as well. While this is a happy change, it can also be traumatic. Anytime your sense of self is threatened, it can cause negative dreams. You may have dreamed that your husband died because you are afraid of losing your personal identity and who you are. A part of you may wish that you could regain the former person that you were before the relationship.

4. You Are Preparing for a Break Up

While many people enjoy happy, long-lasting relationships, about half of marriages ultimately end in divorce. You may be having arguments right now that are making you consider a divorce. It is also possible that you are sensing negativity from your husband about your relationship. If you have dreams that your husband is dying, it could be because your subconscious is trying to prepare you for a break up. It is helping you experience what life would be like if you were single as you try to move on.

A dream of your husband dying can feel traumatic, but it does not always represent anything bad. In many cases, it is just a sign that you are afraid of losing him. Because that fear is so strong in your subconscious mind, you have dreams that he is dying. It does not mean that he will die or that you hope that he dies. Instead, it is just a reflection of your innermost feelings and fears.

  6. We were at my grandmother’s house but she was not there. she passed away years ago but my husband and I moved in. we were planning for one of his uncles funeral everybody left. Then my husband and I were talking smack to each other in a goofy way. We were laughing and then he grabbed his heart and went into shock. paramedics came to get him and they said he had an heart attack. My husband told me that he was ok and that there was fluid around his heart. on my way to visit him he had another heart attack and died. and it just killed me emotionally. We only been married for a couple of weeks but I’ve known him for 9 years. So I was heartbroken.

    • This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional relationships. Your connection with your late grandmother may have caused this dream to appear. The death of your husband is a reflection of your knowledge of change. The two of you recently got married, so nourish your relationship by spending additional time with him in person. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will honor the memories of your late family members. Have a great day, Constance!

  7. In my dream me and my husband were at a beach. He was asleep in a lawn chair all of a sudden the hotel behind us started crumbling. I tried to get him to wake up but he kept sleeping. Then the waves far out in the distance were getting really big and crazy. I tried frantically to wake him up. The water was rising and he just turned over and continued sleeping. I ran to get to higher ground and felt completely guilty for leaving him. I cried and cried waiting for the water to subside. My husbands spirit appeared and was talking to me about how he died. Then he went and showed me how high the waters got and where he died at. I could not stop crying but calmed down some as he talked to me. This is the second night I. A row I’ve dreamed of my husband dying.

    • This is the second night in a row that you dreamed about your husband dying. Death is often an indication of change. This change could be related to many things. He passed in your dream after you attempted to support him. It did not seem that the ghost of your partner was upset within your dream. Ensure that this dream guides you to nourish your relationship with your husband, as this will nourish your relationship. Have a great day, Christy!

  8. I dreamed that my husband had been hit by some vehicle on the road. He is sitting beside the road. Our another Friend has also died. He had many injuries. I saw his spinal cord on the road.His arms were also dislocated. He was not beeing able to sit properly. He was dying there in my arms. I was crying and crying. I told him to be there for me..I cant live without him. He was smiling.. And saying everything will be alright. It was clear to every that he would die in sometimes. I cried and cried. Then I saw we took him to hospital and the doctor was saying this injury couldn’t be fixed but another could be. The doctor was doing something with his body and my dream ended. I was horrifie. I love him so much. I cannot afford loosing him.

    • Your dream is a reflection your concerns regarding dangers and death in your life. It is possible that there is a health concern that may have cause this dream to appear. Abstain from consuming violent and dramatic media, as this will reduce similar dreams from manifesting in the future. Ensure that this dream guides you to nourish your relationship with your partner.

  9. I had a dream I was getting married but my husband was dead. I couldn’t stop crying in my dream but there was no groom at my wedding. I recently just got married and have a constant fear that I am the most committed in the relationship. Many people don’t understand and honor the meaning of married. Although he has assured me he does I don’t believe its true.

    • Your dream is a reflection of your fears regarding your relationship. Within your comment, you made it clear that you do not trust your partner. Your partner has attempted to inform you that he values your relationship. It seems that you need to look inward to understand your thoughts regarding this relationship. Speak with your partner about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Monyeen!

  10. In my dream before he died I dreamed he left me for another woman I was in rage that he would do this to me I started fighting with him and her and later he died in my dream after the fight, like a few hours later… and at his funeral she was there and she stated she was pregnant lucky for my husband when I woke up he wasn’t around cause I would have started a argument with him.. the dream was so vivid and real I was extremely hurt and mad

    • This dream seems to be a reflection of your emotional relationship with your late partner. This did not occur in your life, so this dream may be related to dramatic media that you have seen. Abstain from consuming violent and dramatic media. This will reduce similar dreams from manifesting in the future. If your partner’s behaviors were appropriate during his life, then allow this dream to fade. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times, as this honor the memory of your husband. Have a great day, Sherry!

  11. I had a dream that my husband died in a cat accident and I was over my mothers house. My mother is deceased. Then I was at a house we use to leave in with my youngest grandson getting ready for work and a friend of ours which also is deceased told me to go down the street and find out if it was my husband because of the description of the car. This lady told me it happened one hour ago and the person’s Liver, Kidney and Spleen was injured. There was more to the dream.

    • When you love someone, it is normal to fear what could happen to them. This dream just shows how much you love your husband and your subconscious fears for what life would be like without him. Thankfully, it is unlikely this means anything more serioues than that.

  12. I ln my dream my husband died. We were back in our old house , the first we lived in together. I remember that in the dream I felt shocked and upset but appeared calm to everyone. I don’t know how he died just that I got phone call telling me.
    I am wondering if this is due to changes in my life . I’ve just been offered a new job after 15 years in my current one.

    • Death is often an indication of your knowledge of change. The new job offer likely impacted this relationship. The death of your husband within the dream may be an indication of your knowledge that the new job may change your relationship. Speak with your husband about your thoughts and feelings regarding the career opportunity, as this will help you understand his position. Have a great day, Sophie!

  13. I had a dream that I was in a car with an older man I knew that has actually already died. He was telling me my husband died in a car accident. I was distraught and kept asking questions about what happened. Did he fly through the windshield? The man said no. Roll over? no. Until I was told it was a head on collision. Then the dream shifted to me and my husband’s aunt going to a place to pick up his personal items. In them was a hat, a wooly, coat, picks, and other thing I can’t remember. Because I was so upset, a women walked over and asked if I wanted a grief counselor. When I said yes, she scheduled me an appointment in the future. Then I was in a car driving home with his aunt and was trying to figure out how long we’d been married when he died. In my dream he died on the 26th (not sure which month) but we were married for atleast six months. I was frightened to go home because of my step son and what that would mean. Would I get custody? Would his mom? Then I woke up.

    • The dream shows how much you love your husband. When you love someone greatly, it is only natural to be afraid of their death. You stop seeing yourself as just an “I” and begin to see yourself as a “we” instead. While this fear is normal, the dream does bring up an important topic: what will happen to your step-son if something happens to your husband? Since there is at least one child involved, you may want to sit down with your husband to write your wills and designate what happens in the event that one of you dies.

  14. I dreamt my husband died in surgery for congestive heart failure but he was able to come back to be seen only by me for only 72 hours as I’m crying and begging for him please don’t leave me he after that time would expire that he would always be with me but I wouldn’t be able to see him.. in that time of the 72 hours he was quickly telling me things to protect me now that he would no longer be in the living. Things like always put your change in your purse before you come out the store so it doesn’t tempt someone to rob you & don’t allow people who you don’t really know in all parts of your home he said no one except close family should know the entire lay out of your home. Check your doors and windows every night. I woke up sweating paralyzed in fear and sadness jumped up turned all the lights on in the house looked at the clock
    5:26 am so I called him sobbing because he works nights and assured me he was well. Definitely traumatic it felt so very real..smh

    • When you love someone deeply, it is only natural that you would fear what life would be like without them. This dream shows how much you care for your husband. It sounds like you have reached the point in a committed relationship where you realize just how much your partner does and how difficult it would be to live life without them. Thankfully, the dream does not mean that this will happen in real life, so you can relax and enjoy life with your husband.

  15. I dreamed that I got a phone call saying my husband died. Then I was at his funeral. Then I was at a support group and the director didn’t read my husbands name and I got angry. Then she came out and we had all written letters to our dead husbands and the envelope that I handed in I had wrote My King which is what I have always called him. I woke up crying and telling him about it. What does it mean?

    • Death is often symbolic of a transformation. Your dream may have happened because you feel like your relationship with your husband is transforming or growing. It is also possible that the reason is even simpler: you fear life without him and don’t want to lose him ever, so your subconscious mind gave you a dream that shows your fears coming true.

  16. Today when I woke up , it was 6 a.m in the morning.
    I was crying badly coz I saw my husband dying in my dream.

    It seems like we were preparing for a vacation and loading the baggages in a car . All family members were there , Place seems to be a Mall.

    Then I had a small argumentative discussion with my mother in law and with my own brother.

    Then my husband says to me that … I sucks his blood too …
    I turn towards him and kept asking how so …. How did I sucks his blood …. And right in front of my eyes he jumped from the railling …. He hits the ground almost 10 to 12 floor down and I was shocked to see blood which was coming from his head …

    My voice was gone but I was crying loudly in my dream also tears were rolling off from my eyes….. Than I saw he was giving A sign that he is still alive but dying so come soon. ..

    Immediately my voice came back and I started running to save him throught stairs ….

    And that is the time when I woke up shouting and crying ….
    I am scared …..

    First this is a dream in morning and why will I see something like this ….
    It was real like hell….

    I would also like to mention here that 2.6 yrs back I lost my father in an accident , he fell from first floor roof and died immediately . Till we reached to him it was already 8 hrs when he passed away .. I didn’t saw him falling but listened how he passed away from my mother .

    Can this be related ….

    Please help me to understand this.

    • It is entirely understandable that you’d be afraid of someone you love dying in a dream. This especially makes sense since you have already discovered what it feels like to have a loved one like your father pass away. Thankfully, this dream is probably not going to happen in real life–it just shows how much you care for your husband and how much you fear losing him.

    • The death is probably figurative and not literal. After going through so much grief, your subconscious is probably wishing that you could escape from the difficulties of your relationship and just move on, which is why the dream happened.

  17. I had a dream that my husband was shot and killed by police10 hrs later our friend is face timing me she tells me my husband is dead that the police killed him I want to no why that happened what was the meaning why I was left with that?

    • With all of the stories of police-related deaths and mass shootings in the news, this dream may simply be a reflection of those news stories. It is also possible you feel a sense of fear about all of the factors and dangers in life that you can’t control and how they could affect your loved ones.

  18. Dreamed my husband dead in a war. And we’re having family problems in our marriage right now.we have two boys and in this dream my three year old was the one fighting the war to save people,it’s was only me and my two boys that survived from the war.

    • You are having family problems at this time, and this certainly caused this dream to appear. Death is often an indication of your knowledge of change. Wars are symbols of conflict. It seems that you should address the concerns that you have in your waking life with your husband. The two of you should reach a conclusion to these stresses, or it is certain that your relationship will be forever altered.

  19. I have been having these dreams lately of my husband dying but each dream he dies in a different way. This last dream I had he and my father were in the car together headed to my aunt’s house and they were hit by a 18 wheeler truck. Police said my husband was choked to death by the seat belt but didn’t really explain to my mom how my dad died. It was horrible. The first dream I had, he had been shot dead by a lady sheriff. I hate having these type of dreams. What do they mean?

    • These dreams seem to be an indication of concerns that you may have in your life. Death is often a symbol for change, so it is possible that there is something in your life that you are thinking about. This doesn’t mean that your relationship is in danger, but rather that you should nourish your connection by spending additional time together in person.
