Dreams may affect relationships
New York: A new study has shown for the first time that our dreams have real consequences in our daytime interactions with our partners in the days that follow.
Looking at the dream journals and relationship activity logs of 61 people who are coupled up, researchers from the University of Maryland found that dreams about infidelity, jealousy and other "bad" relationship behavior were associated with greater relationship conflict and reduced intimacy in subsequent days, according to the Vancouver Sun.
"A lot of people don`t pay attention to their dreams and are unaware of the impact they have on their state of mind," the Huffington Post quoted Dylan Selterman, the study`s lead author and a psychology lecturer at the University of Maryland as saying.
"Now we have evidence that there is this association," he said.
The good news - romantic partners pop up in roughly 20 percent of dreams among people in relationship s, according to another recent study, so your spouse is bound to do something right in one of your dreams.
The study is published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science.
