On three seperate occasions this week I've dreamt of my parents becoming embattled in a nasty divorce, and woken up actually physically crying. My parents have been married for almost 40 years (next year) and there has been no chance of even a trial seperation since about 1986. So I'm really thinking this is not a dream to be literally interpreted. This is what dream dictionary. com has to say...
To dream of your parents could be quite an involved thing and must be sorted out by consulting the rest of your dream. By and large the dream of a father is a dream symbol of authority which this parent has held over you, it could also represent power, or strength, or discipline. A dream of a mother is usually a dream that foretells a happy conclusion concerning a love interest as a mother represents love, protection, and nourishment of the body or the spirit. If a deceased parent speaks to you in a dream you will have some very good luck. Unfortunately to dream of parents in law you will soon become involved in an embarrassing situation.
A dream of a divorce, whether you are in a courtroom or not, is a warning that you must change your ways and learn to compromise rather then demand, or your marriage is in danger of divorce. A single life of frustration is that of a woman who dreams of a divorce because of cheating lovers.
This does not help very much. Attempting to meld these thoughts to fit "parents divorcing" makes no freakin sense. Perhaps Jerry Springer is on in the middle of the night and when I fall asleep with the TV on it just gets all up in my subconscious.
