My experience of shared-dreams relates to standard dreams. When my son was aged about 6 or 7, he wore a troubled look one morning when he woke up.
He told me about a dream he'd had. I'd had one almost identical, the same night.
As he grew older, he stopped telling me about his dreams.
My daughter and I have had very similar dreams, as we've discovered the next day. It's probably quite common amongst people in close relationships,
although until recently, I haven't seen much mention of it in books, forums, etc.
Dreams; what we regard as 'dreams'; out of body travel; information received during dreams, etc. are most probably some of the most important
experiences we have in life. Dreams may be when we're most 'alive'; most truly 'ourselves'. It would be nice if people were encouraged to
prepare for 'sleep' in a more meaningful and expectant manner.
I suspect that computer use interferes with the quality of our dreams.
