Dream about a violent ex partner is unfortunately your pessimistic outlook in life. You are trying to conceal or bury your questionable behavior. The same old problems are coming back to haunt you because they were not properly addressed or dealt with in the first place. This is a symbol for being in debt and your attitudes about money, work and thrift. You lack integrity.
A violent ex partner dream signals docility and conformity. Your naughty and devious side is in conflict with your moral standards. You are bounded by barriers and obstacles. The dream is sadly a warning for hard work, diligence, cooperation and industry. You are feeling neglected and insignificant.
If you dreamt about a violent ex partner:
Although your love life could get quite heated, and you may find the expression of your deeper emotions a little uncomfortable, you will not be able to do otherwise on this occasion. At least you partner cannot possibly get the wrong message, and will feel more secure.
