  • Wedding, old man groom was created by Miss C
    I dreamt that my mother was getting married, she was older in the dream, and the man she was marrying was old and decrepit, wrinkled in the face. I could see the mans face up close as if I was officiating the ceremony. I remember the vows, they both said " I promise to LIKE you" the old man was more detailed "I promise to like you from now til forever, regardless of what anyone else feels or says" it seemed as though they were childhood sweethearts that allowed other people to interfere with their relationship and now that they were older, they were giving it another shot. I also remember the mans name was Charles Dickerson. I don't know anyone by that name, but it was sooooo clear in the dream and repeated as if I was supposed to acknowledge his name. Please help me interpret this dream, I greatly appreciate it. Thank u!

    Ask yourself what/who your mother has "wedded herself" to recently. It could be work, a hobby, a project, etc. There are clues in the dream as to "his" identity. Her "mate" appears "old and decrepit, wrinkled" in your dream because that's how you view him/it. Another clue is how you saw their "partnership" in the dream... one of "like" as opposed to "love." Still, you view her as making a commitment to it/him.

    If you are still confused as to the "groom's" identity, try to recall how you felt about the groom IN your dream. Because feelings in dreams are never disguised, how you feel IN the dream, is how you feel about its subject in waking life. Try to identify where you might be feeling the same about someone or thing related to your mom's interests and "new commitments" in waking life.

    Your dream reflects concern about your mother's commitment to her new "groom." As with any "marriage," you want to respect those involved. After all, they are consenting adults. :)

    You may want to share your dream and its insights with your mom. Assure her that your dream reflects your feelings only and that you only want the best for her.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for your interpretation....

    My mom has been married to the same man for the past 20 years, so that can't be the "new".
    Funny though, I asked if she knew someone by that name and she does, but last name might be Dickenson not Dickerson, however there is absolutely no love connection or new ventures with that person.
    I read on another site that if I'm the one getting married to an old man in my dream, it could mean sorrow, illness, or even death but I choose to not believe that :)

    I fear that you misunderstood my last post. Allow me to try again.

    When dreams are weird, unlikely or not reflective of the literal reality of your life, they are often symbolic. Given the fact that there is not literal "groom" in your mom's life, try to identify what (as opposed to "who") else he/it might be.

    Try not to think literally. What else is going on in your mother's life that is a new "commitment," one that feels "old, decrepit, wrinkled"... the opposite of what you probably would want for your mom. Those details reveal your concern. Ideally, the "groom" should be young, vibrant and buff (within reason, of course because, after all, we're talking about your mom!)

    By the way, you were wise NOT to believe the wacky and unsupportable interpretation of that other website. (Where do they get their information?) If you don't get the logic of a dream interpretation, odds are it's not right.

    Dreams are reflections of your feelings about what's going on in your waking life at the time of the dream. Dreams don't foretell your future, but they do give you insight into what's most important to you, as well as what you think, feel and intuit about its subject. Knowing that, you will always make better decisions.

    Your dream is about your feelings about your mother's new "groom" or "commitment." What has she been up to recently that makes you feel as if she is getting ready to "marry" or "commit herself" to it... something you perceive as being old, decrepit and wrinkled.

    Think outside the box.

    When you figure it out, please let us know. If you're still not sure, please post more background about your mom and her recent activities and we'll do our best to help you ID that "groom."

    Thanks!

    The only thing I can think of, is that my mom was in an accident, totaled her car and now she has to commit to getting a new car. I have been influencing her to wise decisions in the matter, like maybe buying a car cash avoiding financing or if she chooses to finance get something she can afford instead of something to impress. So I guess the "groom" would be me disliking her old way of thinking when committing to something???

    That works! Nicely done!

    If it's something else, undoubtedly, your new dreams will alert you. :)
