Spiritual Husband Or Wife ( Truth Or Superstition )

I know we all have our various beliefs and how well we project them but during a recent conversation with some people, the issue of "spiritual relationship" came up.

What was discussed was that it is a thing of the mind and literally has nothing to do with spiritual bondage of some sort. Untrue as it may sound,some people have actual experience or close relations experience to make this topic still a mystery.However, I have come to learn that there are various reasons to have come to the conclusion of spiritual marriage. Some of the confession I have heard are :

1. Presence of semen on the body when one wakes up.

2. Terrible disgust for your real life partner (in cases of husband and wife)

3.having wedding ceremony, giving birth in the dream.

4.Being very attractive but don't seem to attract much proposal from the opposite gender.

All these are just a few,and in most cases these spiritual spouses are referred to as JINN in Islam.

So my question is,do you believe there's such thing or it's just superstition??

  • To me, I think it's real but not that common. I got to know about spiritual husbands and wives in movies which I don't believe in then but I do now after hearing some cases related with it. Anyone diagnosed with such should be very prayerful as the so called spiritual can be dangerous. May God be with us.

  • The truth is there is no such thing as a spiritual husband or wife but are demon spirits who oppress or manipulate individuals who are ignorant or who have grown up under demonic inferences. So these demons continue to oppress them, lie to them and manipulate their minds. It’s not an illusion, it’s a real experience. But every Christian, whoever finds himself in such situation must learn to cast out devils, you reject their authority over you because Jesus Christ is the lord of your life and these demons have no power over you.

  • Yes I strongly believe that the issue of spiritual husband truly exists and is no superstition. I have a friend who went through similar experience as listed above, but hers was more on getting virtually no attention from the other gender and as she said she dreams of herself and and the spiritual husband virtually every time.

  • To my own understanding, everything strange things that happens in our lives is through ones belief. To me I don't believe that such thing called Spiritual Wife/Husband exist. Because if I do believe such thing, diffenately am going to dream about it and it's going to be part of me. To conclude my point, Spiritual Relationship is no where in existence without a belief.

  • No matter how true it looks, there is nothing like it. It is the manipulation of the devil to make us believe what is not true. Devil operates based on human ignorance, so he makes us, especially Africans to believe all  manners of lies so as to cheat and blind fold us. Spirits don't marry

  • I think there is because I've heard concrete situations of it; not that they are evils but they are like spiritual partners, but one should just be prayerful as it affects one's physical life on earth. In the case of having dreams or weddings of such, spirituality counts and one needs to deal with it before it gets out of hand! Spirituality is real!

  • I have heard of such things but I have not experienced it at all or know someone that does. But from the little I have it is a terrible thing. Just see caution if it ever happens to you. Meet your Priest or pastor to pray for you, this is something nobody wants to take lightly.

  • I only watch this in films or hear it from someone but I've never experienced  someone with this issue, so i might not fully believe in it but i believe there is nothing impossible in this life so even if it really happens to someone, then i think that kind of person should only pray towards it cause i know the person can't get married to a spiritual being or something.

  • To me, its an understatement to call it real because its more than real just that its not all that rampant, and I also think its a thing of belief, I mean, its what you believe that can actually have effect on you if not, such things can never manifest

  • I think when it comes to spiritual husband or wife its very true. Considering the fact that islamically it is believed that jinns comes in the form of a friend of yours or family member and can toy with your thoughts and feelings also.

  • For sure the case of spiritual wife and husband really exist me and my friend has conducted many deliverance prayer and at the unconscious state of such individual the spiritual partner speaks and says a lot of things which the individuals under the deliverance will never remember after the prayer so I believe they really exist.

  • Well to those who are very religious, they believe in spiritual husbands/wives especially most African countries.

    But the non-religious people see it as mere superstitious.

    To me I believe it but I don't think it's occurrence is as frequent as some people make it look.

  • As an African and the orientation I received about the supernatural world. I believe there are spirit husbands and wives. This is the name given to demons you seen to make someone remain unmarried or not to enjoy marriage if marriage. Some of them result from past covenants from ancestors and can sometimes prove to be life threatening if the victim tries to fight back. It is only the higher power that can actually defeat these spirits.

  • I believe in spiritual husband and wife.in Africa there are a lot of covenants our forefathers entered into most times,these covenants are not being renewed and so,open doors to spirit husbands and wives.

  • In my opinion, I see all these things to be untrue and fetish and there is no such thing like a spiritual Husband or Wife, it is just something made up by people to give you a different perception of Life. I've also heard some stories but don't consider them to exist.

  • Very much in existence, the spirit controls the physical some the victims end up having marital delays or child delays its real and not superstition, that person or victim needs a supernatural force from a spiritual leader to help break this connection between them.

  • There are such, spiritual husband or wife is real, I know of a person experience such, she has a spiritual husband who always sleep with her in her dream, till the day she was delivered. So it's true.

  • It's a known fact that spiritual husbands are real and I believe that all the things you just listed are the consequences of having a spiritual husband. In terms of spiritual wife, it's real but I believe it's rare.  All this spiritual stuffs are more common in girls.

    - TOCHUKWU KINGSLEY OKOYE - 2019-10-26 16:56:43 Quote

  • According my believes and upbringing, i have come to realize that people especially girls mostly or are most likely to really have problems of spiritual relationship. All what you have listed above are simply sypmtoms or maybe signs of having a spiritual relationship which needs real prayers

    - Bello Damilola - 2019-10-26 17:56:12 Quote

  • To me, the case of having a spiritual husband or wife is not a superstition because it is recorded in the bible, this spirits posses the body without the host knowing, when ever you expect something good and it turns down you need to check yourself well, spiritual spouses don't allow success to come. Go for deliverance and have a strong pastor destroy the bond.

    - Dominic Ozioma - 2019-10-27 04:55:01 Quote

  • This spirit husband and wife is real,especially in Yoruba land if spirit husband or wife is disturbing somebody,there are some ritual rite they are going to perform for the person to set him or her free from the bondage because it’s a bondage,without performing the ritual rite the man or woman won’t be able to get married or live in peace.

    - Tobi Emmanuel - 2019-10-27 07:56:09 Quote

  • Superstition or not is clear to those affected and in most recent history and hearings it's real.so spiritual husband affectants should easily get divine intervention and pray fervently because it's shorten human life.

    - Hammed Abdullah Adekunle - 2019-10-28 14:29:52 Quote

  • Truth be told, such things as spiritual partner exist cause have heard of people men and women most especially who are very beautiful and good looking but find it hard to be in a relationship, so yes spiritual husbands/wife do exist but this is life and one can find anything in this life cause life itself is a mystery and full of mysteries but we as humans just need to be very very prayerfull.

    - Oluwakemi Rosanwo - 2019-10-29 12:47:24 Quote

  • Left for me, I'll say spiritual husbands or wives are for real because as far as you are a human, you are prone to attacks from the devil. That's why one have to be careful and fervent in prayers because you never can tell when the devil will strike

    - Nwachukwu Emmanuel - 2019-10-29 13:22:42 Quote

  • Matters like this are better left as mystery, they happen for real but some people choose not believe in things like this, spiritual husbands and wives, some people believe it to be superstitious, but as long as the holy books made mention of it, then they are believe to real.

    - Damilola Sodiq - 2019-10-29 17:40:39 Quote

  • For me I don't believe such thing exist.but fully know that the spiritual things are more to be compared to the physical things we see around us.the Christian Bible said that,All things are possible to them that believe.so if any should believe on the existence of spiritual wife or husband,it then becomes real to them.

    - Etim jude Joseph Jason - 2019-10-31 13:31:08 Quote

  • Well,  as for me i think it's actually do exist. some of them especially women use to give birth to one or two children before coming to this earth. So if they want to marry another man on earth they would face a lot of complications..  Well it doesn't look superstitious to me it is what is really happening..

  • I feel this thing about spiritual spouses has to do with your mentality and mindset 

    Your up bringing and family background 

    As for me I dnt believe in it and can never 

    I just feel I'm more civilized 

    - David Akobundu - 2019-10-31 19:29:49 Quote

  • It do exist. Spiritual husband or wife,  have heard and seen people invove in it.

    But some people believe it superstition, they say it not real, some says it only happen in only yoruba land. Hv seen it happen to an ibo woman , that she was unable to conceive for her earthly husband ... Spiritual husband or wife is real

    - Oreoluwa Bolaji - 2019-11-01 09:27:23 Quote

  • From my point of view, it's not just a superstition cause I have seen people that where actually affected by it. They start having the dreams, next they wake up with semen all over. It mostly stops when one actually goes for a deliverance section though. So yea it's not superstition.

    - Titus Victor - 2019-11-01 11:34:12 Quote

  • You see, i dont believe in the issues of spirit husband or spirit wife or evil spiritual mariages. People are force to believe this lies and Manupulation.

    To me this is not real but a supperstition Believe. This is nothing but a Nightmare.

    I have heard many stories but is seems like farytale.

    - UMAR MUHAMMAD FARUK - 2019-11-01 17:24:31 Quote

  • For me, I don't believe in the issues of spiritual husband or wife because science has already provided information about why and how these things happen. So, if in any way I had a dream like that and I wake up to find semen or anything of such, I contact my doctor for consultation 

    - Olorunfunmibi Tolulope - 2019-11-02 09:49:42 Quote

  • The myth of spiritual husbands or wife is something that we cannot ignore entirely. Even though we might have never seen or touched them, their manifestations abound. Let's not forget that we are in Africa and anything spiritual should not be overlooked... So of course I believe they exist

    - Enenche Kenneth - 2019-11-02 12:24:20 Quote

  • To my own humble opinion I strongly believe spiritual spouses exist coz I av witnessed testimonies and seen live deliverance which broke d curse of d spiritual spouse of a lady and till now she is happily married with kids which before she was unable to get a man to marry her

    - Opeyemi IFELAYO - 2019-11-02 15:31:28 Quote

  • From my point of view I think spiritual spouses are real but we rarely hear of them. I have people telling stories on how they witnessed one or two cases of spiritual spouses. I never believed till I read books relating to this matter. It seems to be demons or spiritual forces that are manipulating humans to do this things. Let's be prayerful not to fall victims. 

    - sandra omotoyosi Akinwale - 2019-11-04 00:03:52 Quote

  • I wouldn't say this is real or not, but what I believe about this matter is: there are spirits that torment and torture people in dream and also oppress. But then I think the case of spiritual husband is just a mental facade, it's something old people brought up to make people fear spiritual oppression.

  • Spiritual husbands and wives do exist An incubus is a demon in male form who, according to mythological and legendary traditions, lies upon sleeping women in order to engage in sexual activity with them. Its female counterpart is a succubus. Salacious tales of incubi and succubi have been told for many centuries in traditional societies. Some traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with an incubus or succubus may result in the deterioration of health, mental state, or even death. And the funniest part of it is that some people will have it and they will be ignorant of its presence in their lives.  They are spiritual forces in the dark kingdoms and forces in high places.....  May God deliver as many as are victims of these principalities... 

    - Adetoyinbo Kehinde Ayoade - 2019-11-04 11:43:14 Quote

  • To me, spiritual husbands and wives does not exist,these are demons that possess people in their dreams, and sometimes some of these people will start having setbacks and difficulties in life. So there is nothing like spiritual spouses,they are only demons that torment people in the dream world.

  • Actually as a Muslim,I don't believe in spiritual husband and wife,it is just the bad spirit(jinn)disturbing someone's life and can happen or come in different dimensions to anyone,,,,it might even be a case of a Dead person who you met in some other places  and you think he has started a new life....it just Jinn or they probably look alike

  • Spiritual husband or wife is very real is not a superstitious or has it has been said as a mental stuff. Is a demonic activities been exploited by Satan to cause choas in the life of their chosen vessels to cause their victims to be facing up and down,in there finance,relationship, etc.Anybody that is experiencing this should go for deliverance for them to be free

  • The issue of spirtitual husband or wife as said is true. It is a spiritual manipulation the devil use against some people who are either ignorant of its existence or those not spiritually strong or sensitive enough to disern its operation and fight against it. it affects its victims in different areas of their lives. Financially, maritally, spiritually and even psychologically.

    One way to profer solution is acknowledging its operation and taking a stand to fight against it. Seek spiritual help and counsel from spiritual leaders. Fast and pray then read and research on how to fight against. with these steps you will certainly be free from its grip

  • To my own side of view, I believe there's what we call spiritual husband/wife, this are the partner we have before coming to earth and due to the relationship between them , they keep coming back to check on their loved ones even after they are ready to settle down with their earthly spouse.

    - Olumide Balogun - 2019-11-10 10:31:08 Quote

  • Truth be told, no matter how we try to rationalize over issues concerning the Physical and spiritual realm, the truth remains that the both exist and also that the spiritual controls the physical. I would not say for sure that there is any such thing as spiritual husband's or spiritual wives but I believe that there is a possibility. It might not be the actual case, but manipulations can occur in the spiritual realm and it affects the Physical. Let us not water it down and bring it to a 0% possibility. There is a possibility

  • Honestly I've heard a lot about all these spiritual husbands and wives but I don't really believe in them. I feel a persons imagination can affect their type of dreams also and can cause them to have all sorts of weird dreams. And psychology also plays a part in many of the symptoms listed above. 

    - Chiedozie Agwu - 2019-11-11 15:27:21 Quote

  • This spiritual husband of a thing sounds trash to me. I dont believe in it. Truth be told, we were made for different purposes and when our partners act the way they should'nt, we start blaming it on spirituality. If wives can't support their husbands, the man can't grow. Stop looking at other peoples marriage and bringing in excuses as how your husband has join occult. Nigerians should mind how they follow religion please.

  • For me i feel it's all superstition, but people might be talking from experience and i can't seem to believe superstitious things. But a lot of people especially in African countries believe spiritual husbands exists. I hear the spiritual husbands tend to disturb the ladies from having real life husbands but i don't know how true that is. 

    - Bolaji Bello - 2019-11-12 14:05:47 Quote

  • It is true, real and indeed not a superstition. This arises as a result of generational evil convenant and environmental manipulation by demonic spirits to hinder and supress the fulfillment of ones destiny and God's will. Fasting, praying and going for deliverance encounter is key but only if have genuine salvation.

    - Awoh Destiny - 2019-11-12 15:00:45 Quote

  • I actually think the case of spiritual wives/husband is actually real because on a normal day you can't just wake up and see semen in you( for the ladies) when you never had intercourse with anybody.

    So I feel like it is very real and you would need a very strong spiritual person to be able to rebuke it.

    - Favour Ojugbeli - 2019-11-12 17:40:44 Quote

  • I think it's true,but not to everyone.At times dreams comes as to what you think about before going to bed,so what's actually in the mind appears in the dream, secondly dreams are spiritual,it might be as a result of one spiritual attack and manipulation,so it's adviceable for you to wake up and pray

    - Ibiba Dabota - 2019-11-13 20:18:44 Quote

  • I think its true, because a lot of people who are faced with life challenges today sometimes lament on dreams. The kingdom of darkness uses dream to torment people and collect their glory from them. Its not a superstition, I will advice such people involved to seek the face of God by fasting and praying, I believe through that such can be delivered
