Me and my husband married a few months ago... but ever since then I've slept terribly. I haven't had one decent night of sleep. We're both very similar people but he's a really different person around his friends than around me. He pressured me to marry him really quick... aish.. what could this mean?

Maybe you're worried about things... I guess your life will have changed when you got married: habits, where you're living,...
You'll need to find out what worries you. Since nightmares are nothing else than your brain sounding the alarm bell :o1

It could be hormone changes because being married, usually in the first few months when you are in your honeymoon phase, means a lot more sex than when you were dating. And that affects your hormones which affects your sleep.
Or it could be psychological because commitment through marriage is a much more serious matter than when you are dating, and that could mess you up subconsciously until you get used to the idea and adjust and accept it. Which could easily mess up your sleep as well.
Or it could just be the big change which your mind might just not like. I know my OCD and other people's usually sets in when I deal with a big change. The bigger the change the longer it takes to cool off.
Or it could be that you love him or want him so much that you are afraid of losing him, and just the subconscious thought gives you nightmares.
As for myself, I moved into a place with my husband after we got married because I was living at home since he was working in a far away city. I had a pretty hostile home environment, and after I got married my husband was very kind to me so I was living in a much more peaceful and pleasant environment, and the first few months I would have nightmares of my past home and even swear at everyone in my sleep, until it eventually wore off.
Plus having full responsibility of life for the first time had an irreversible effect on my sleep and I went from the heaviest sleeper to waking up at the sound of a pin dropping. (Maybe it's a psychological response to the fact that I knew I may become a mother at some point, and that made me more alert). So light sleep can leave room for nightmares as well.
Anyway, could describe how his behavior is different towards you and his friends?
Where did you live and for how long before you got married?0
