Dreams that involve divorce or separation from your partner in some way may be expression of anger towards your current partner. Such dreams may also represent some kind of emotional breakdown or lack of communication in the relationship.
If you have a dream in which your partner demands a divorce, you may be feeling concerned about the robustness of your marriage. On the other hand, your unconscious may be traumatizing you with such a dream to remind you of how lucky you are to have such a wife or husband, thereby warning you not to take them for granted.
If it is you who is asking for the divorce in your dream, ask yourself if you are longing to escape from your marriage.
If you do have dreams which feature divorce, they can be extremely unsettling, especially if you are in a committed relationship in waking life; it is important to bear in mind, however, that your unconscious may have used your partner as a symbol for something else to which you are wedded, such as a job, an ideal or an opinion.
If so, your dreaming mind may have been urging you to leave your job, change your mind or open your mind to new possibilities. A dream of saying farewell to your lover or partner is similar in many ways to dreams about death, as it does not mean you are going to leave someone, it means you are saying goodbye to something they represent....

References in this dream may be literal. Perhaps you are concerned about your relationship or have unconscious feelings about it. However, you may be projecting other thing in this dream. Your dream husband, perhaps, represents your father or the masculine side of your nature.

Dreams of suffocation or being crushed often relate to your feelings concerning separation and attachment in waking life, and as such, point to experiences of childhood and family. Such dreams often occur at times of change, such as leaving home for the first time, getting married or at times of illness and death. Dreams of suffocation can also tell of fears of being overwhelmed, dominated or drowned by a powerful figure, who is likely to be a family figure. Two influential psychoanalysts—John Bowlby and Donald Winnicott—have written extensively about the concept of separation and attachment. They suggested that a large proportion of anxieties and mental health problems are associated with separation between infant and mother in childhood. Their suggestion is that separation is not only distressing for a baby but can also cause anxieties in later life. They proposed that premature separation can lead to insecurity, which can lead to hostility, and that this hostility can interfere with the processes determining subsequent growth and development. All of this is said to trigger mourning at an age when a child is too young to manage such feelings, meaning that a child may be stuck in a state of despair or depression. Dreams of suffocation, separation, loss and abandonment may therefore be informative as they can tell the dreamer of an unresolved separation in their family. This is when feelings of mourning or hostility towards the parent or other family figure have not yet been explored or dealt with.
Separation anxiety occurs when we have to confront the prospect of being separated from someone who is considered essential to our physical or emotional survival. Typically, separation anxiety occurs in relation to family members or partners, as these are the people with whom we normally have the closest relationships; the anxiety may often be reflected in nightmares and disturbing dreams. Although normal in childhood—when a child is absolutely dependent upon the parent to provide for its needs—separation anxiety in adulthood, when the presence of another person is used in defense against some other form of anxiety, is considered detrimental to a person’s emotional development. Dreams of suffocation or nightmare scenarios involving the separation, death or loss of a family member or spouse are often triggered by separation anxiety and in many instances they can offer clues to help manage and resolve these feelings in waking life.
