Dream meaning of alimony

« Back to Dreams Dictionary

Paying alimony in a dream can symbolize paying for past mistakes, or something from your past that continues extracting a cost. For example, a felony on your record is something you continue to pay for long after the punishment is served.

Alimony can symbolize an ongoing connection with something in your past.
For example, after a bad breakup, you won’t date anyone new because of fear of repeating the situation. In a sense, you are still paying for a relationship that ended.

Alimony can symbolize something perceived as unfair, especially if connected with the past. Dreams make comparisons, so if you perceive paying alimony as unfair, then a dream can use it to compare with something else perceived as unfair.

For example, you receive a bad evaluation at work, then dream about begrudgingly paying alimony to the supervisor who gave the evaluation.
