- Most common 'sins' are infidelity, having a row or fathering a love child
- One in 20 also give boss cold shoulder after dreaming they've been fired
Ever woken up with the urge to elbow your cheating, lying spouse in the side after dreaming about his infidelity - when in reality he probably has done nothing more offensive than hog the duvet?
You're not alone. More than half of women wake up in a mood with their partner - because he annoyed them in a dream during the night, according to new research.
A study found that British men frequently commit misdemeanours such as being unfaithful, having a row or even fathering a secret child in their wives' dreams.

And it's not just husbands and boyfriends who are to blame - nearly two thirds of all the 2,000 adults polled said they are regularly in a bad mood with people who have upset them in a dream.
One in 20 people regularly give their boss the cold shoulder as they dreamed they sacked them the night before, the poll by hotel chain Premier Inn found.
It's not surprising then that four in ten adults said their moods are affected by the dreams they have had the previous evening.
A spokeswoman for Premier Inn said: 'The research shows that our dreams impact heavily on our moods the next day.
'Whilst we may wake-up reeling or confused, or as these result show in a bad mood with someone, the best thing to do is just shake it off and make the most of the day ahead.'
'It's important to try and unwind after a hard day at work, but that is easier said than done if something is playing on your mind.
'Our aim is to make our guest's stay with us as pleasant as possible and to ensure a good night guaranteed.'
The research found a third of those polled said they dream more when they are stressed, with work issues being the biggest contributor.
A third said that a conflict with a colleague often rears its head in a subsequent dream they have and 42 per cent have then confronted the person in question.
Over half of all women say they are frequently peeved with their man when they wake up - and he has no idea what he has done wrong
