New research shows that the content of one’s dreams has an impact on a romantic relationship.
Individuals, who dreamt that their partner’s were cheating on them, actually treated their partner’s differently when they awoke. If you dreamt that your partner was cheating, you were more likely to pick a fight and act distant the next day.
The most likely explanation – our dreams trigger (or prime) emotional reactions, upon which we subsequently act.
Even though it was just a dream, it has a real impact.
