Listening to sleep talking husband
this may sound weird, in fact it is weird, but my husband talks in his sleep &  i find myself listening to whatever he is saying, but what has really got me, is the fact that he described how he slept with another woman in his sleep!! last night
are dreams really the rundown of the days events, or just something that cannot be explained.
he is always talking in his sleep &  sometimes it does relate back to what happened in the day, so is this also what happened,
i am driving myself crazy,
i know he loves me, but he went recently overseas, what if something did happen over there,
has there been proof that dream talkers talk about real life events, replaying those events in their dreams,
plse someone explain to me the meaning of this,
i want to move on.

Genuine sleep talking is often incoherent, and if coherent would generaly reflect what someone might normally say while awake --- so describing how one slept with someone would be really odd content for sleep-talking. As M says, maybe he knows you're listening and wants to bother you ? There is no research on the accuracy of what people say in their dreams ( it would be very hard to conduct such research ), so there's no way of knowing whether this is real, or fantasy, or fake,. other than by calmly discussing it with him.
