There is no need to worry, Stephanie.
Those memories of your ex will always be buried somewhere in your mind. Probably something occurred recently that reminded you of your ex - it might be a place you visited with him, or you might have seen an old movie that you'd first seen with him... it could even have been a snippet of music or an odor that you did not notice with your conscious mind. Whatever it was, it triggered the old memories, which caused the first dream. "Stepping over" the other couple is a metaphor illustrating the fact that those memories have affected your present relationship, and it is time to "get over" them.
That first dream bothered you, and you began wondering why you had that dream, and still more memories came to mind. THAT brought up the second dream along with feelings of guilt and regret.
The meaning of the dreams, especially the second dream, is that you have matured enough to see this past relationship from a better, more rational perspective. You are a different person than you were then, with more insight and understanding. This is an opportunity to forgive yourself, accept your past, and celebrate the good choices you have made since then. Congratulations on your love and strong marriage - very well done!

- Thank you! That was such an insightful response. I feel so much better now. Reading through a few of your comments you mentioned that something may have occurred to remind me of my ex. I can see those things now, lol. Also, the stepping over explanation makes sense! Thank you so much!
