Weird dream sign from God?
My husband and I (both 28) have been married for 10 months. We have decided to try for a baby and its been 3 months so far. I was on the pill for 14 years and heard women on the pill that long are usually fertile right away. I'm feeling discouraged because everyone in both of our families got pregnant right away and it seems like it's taking so long for us. We got a house, got married, have good jobs, got all the toys we wanted, got our traveling out of the way and now it still hasn't happened. My cousins and sisters are unstable and don't have serious relationships but yet they all have kids. I pray to God a lot but don't go to church so I'm not super religious but I do believe in a higher power. I pray and ask for God to do whatever is meant to be. If a baby is supposed to be for us please let it happen soon. But if it's not supposed to happen then I don't want to go through a miscarriage or something. Last night I only slept 3 hours and woke up off and on and Everytime I fell back asleep I continued the same shitty dream. I dreamt my husband cheated on me with his ex and left me for her. In my dream I was saying how it was a sign from God thats why we never had a baby that he knew this would happen and didn't want a baby to be in that mess. I'm trying to not cry about it right now but I am. Is this a sign from God it's not meant to be? But I'm trying to be positive. Should I be happy that it's not true and that's not the situation? I suffer from anxiety and depression and I've been doing so good until lately. Now today its very bad.
A little back story.. when we first got together about 6 years ago he did cheated on me and I punched his face and left his ass immediately. He begged and did everything I wanted to get me back. I dated people and kissed guys all in front of him. He paid for expensive stuff for me cuz honestly I was just trying to use him.(yes I know very toxic) About 6 months of me using him and him sticking around I gave him another shot and here we are.many years later. Happy as can be with 2 fur babies, some chickens, a boat, a big house, nice cars and I'm so spoiled everyday. I love him so much and I know he loves me but that dream really fucked me up. Idk what I'm looking for. I wish I could just talk to God but I guess reddit is all I have right now. P.s. none of our families or friends know we're trying for a kid so I don't wanna vent to them at all. We both come from big families (I'm the oldest of 7 he's the youngest of 6) so it hurts Everytime someone asks when is the baby. And no we're not Mormon or rich at all... just come from ghetto backgrounds. One of the few that broke the cycle, or is at least trying to. I wrote this hours ago and struggled to post it so Thanks to anyone that reads this and has some, hopefully, positive vibes for me.

I think I was sent a message through a dream. Is this possible?
A little background: my ex (I’ll call him X) and I broke up about 6 years ago, and ceased all communication a little over 5 years ago. I met and started dating my current boyfriend (I’ll call him Y) a few months later. X started dating someone and married her a few years ago.
The dream: I remember walking into a pretty nice, but random beach house. Upon walking in, X was standing in the living room and he asked, “so, how’d it go?” to which I replied “it was tough, but I finally got the last of it.” - apparently, I was talking about getting a few remaining items from my Y, thus totally ending our relationship. X was divorced and I had recently broken up with Y. There was no cheating that lead to this, we just got in contact after the end of both of our relationships. Anyway, the remainder of the dream, we kissed, we talked about different things (mostly catching each other up on things we had missed in each other’s lives from the past 5 years), and held each other.
The dream had me shook when I woke up. It was eerily real. I haven’t heard X’s voice or touched him in 5 years, but without a doubt, I can tell you the voice in the dream was 100% his voice. When he hugged, held hands, kissed, anything, it felt exactly like him. It was all instantly recognizable.
Now here’s the weird part:
I honestly hadn’t even thought of X since I started dating Y. When X and I cut communication, we cut everything, no social media, nothing. Occasionally my friends texted me updates about him, but after he got engaged, I told them not to send me updates about him anymore because I didn’t care to know. I can say before this dream, I honestly hadn’t had even a passing thought about X.
But, after this dream, I weirdly could not shake the idea of him being divorced and I had no idea why, I mean seriously, the thought had not even occurred to me prior to the dream. So the night following the dream I did some digging and sure enough, his divorce was finalized 6 weeks prior to the dream.
I feel so weirded out because I hadn’t talked, thought or dreamed about X in years. I don’t think the divorce concept of the dream was prophetic because I didn’t “dream it into existence,” it already existed.
So I feel like somehow I was sent a message about his divorce, that lead me to find out that he was divorced. Is that a thing? Or is my dream just random coincidence?

I met the Devil??
Hi All, please help me interpret this dream because I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what this means. For context, I'm 24f. just lost a job because it wasn't in my field at all, and earlier this year I found out my ex cheated on me. As a hopeless romantic I was just devastated because I thought he was The One.
Let me tell you the story.
So it started off in a warehouse/flat situation where everyone was just hanging out, and I assume it was a sort of medical centre for crackheads too since we'd have a couple come over and some doctors would take them in. Then I eventually decided to follow my friend's sister and mum to the beach outside (think southend-on-sea but barren and with seating areas like in The Minnack Theatre in Cornwall).
We settled on the beach and sat around for a while until two of my friends came over, and we started talking about the Devil being on the top floor of this specific skyscraper, and how he tells you your future. Bear in mind that I didn't see skyscrapers surrounding the beach until they said this, and there was a specific black one which tbh looked pretty cool. So one by one everyone at the beach went to go see him, even my friends, and by the end of the day it was my turn.
My friend showed me the way into the building, but couldn't go up with me since the elevator warning said it was only for one person. As I went up, the elevator started getting smaller and smaller until I was compact. Then it turned out that there were some renovations going on on the top floor, and I was stuck for a little bit until this old couple pulled apart the elevator and got me out.
So, it was time to see the Devil. I started walking around the floor a little bit, it looked like a standard office building, walls were all white and there were accents of wood, loads of meeting rooms too. I found the room where the Devil, as it was the only room occupied, the door was wide open and it was lit with shades of purple, green, and black. So I walk in expecting to see him, but it looked like some generic-ass dude with a flarey costume and a skull mask, which was very underwhelming as you can tell. He explained the rules of visiting him to me, I
had to come up with a question like everyone else did and he would show me an answer/my future. I spent a lot of time at the beach wondering if I should ask about my career or my love life, I'm extremely indecisive and ended up choosing the latter last minute, maybe because I thought it was more important to me (dumb, I know, I should've picked career). He said that's fine, the question can be about anything I want and gestured at this little mountain in front of him. It was like a greyish purple colour and looked like dried lava, and it has a button that you pull out, which I assume is like a pull up to show you your future. He told me to pull the button and I did.
And then I woke up.
and now I'm so frustrated because I'll never know the answer, but also curious. I'm not majorly into dream interpretation, I used to do it a bit more in my teen years or only if a dream freaks me out and I wanna know what it means. But I cannot interpret this at all. Please help, lol.
P.S. I wasn't feeling particularly scared throughout this dream, I was pretty calm the whole time, I kind of thought of it as visiting a funfair attraction. There was a bit of anticipation when going up the lift, but otherwise I was carefree the whole time.
Thanks for reading!

Had a dream a friend of mine tried to rape me
It was so unsettling. This was three nights ago and I'm still weirded out by it.
It was new year's Eve and I left my boyfriend (who is my BF in dream and in real life) at our place to go across the street to check on another friend, who was home alone, and make sure she was okay. I'll call her Laura for the sake of this story. Well, we just were talking and it was late (past the ball drop) so we both started to doze off on her bed. Well then, her boyfriend, who I'll call James, came in, drunk. For reference, I've been friends with James for years now, and did used to have a crush on him maybe 3 years ago before he and Laura got together, but that's completely in the past now. He and Laura are dating in dream and in real life.
Anyway. He was super wasted. I could tell just by how he was stumbling around. And he came to the bed and started spooning me. I just assumed that he thought I was Laura, since it was dark and I was on their bed. But then Laura got up, said "if you're going to keep cheating on me, you don't have to do it right in front of me" in a weird exasperated/bored voice. She then left the room for a bit, and James started to get really forceful. I'll spare the details because they make me ungodly uncomfortable, and I dont want to trigger any rape survivors reading this.
I was able to fight him off, and then I just started yelling at him about how he was horrible and a drunk bastard. And Laura came back in the room and got mad at ME for yelling at James. I then told both of them off about how unhealthy their relationship is (which is, for other reasons, something I kinda believe irl too. But hey, not my business, not my problems).
Next, the dream switches into the next day and James is texting me and calling sometimes because he wants to meet up so he can properly apologize. I agree to meet him in a public space with my boyfriend around 2pm. The dream ended on me snuggling with my boyfriend as I told him all that had happened and the plans for the meetup.
It was so unsettling. This was three nights ago and I'm still weirded out by it.
