Dream symbols - shark bite

This dreamer was unhappy about her marriage yet she did not want to speak out about it. What do you think the shark in this dream is symbolic of? Notice that the shark does not affect the children? Perhaps this dream pinpoints the feeling "I will have to cope with all the stress of my marriage. I hope my children are unaffacted."

THE DREAM We were in the ocean playing fall off the boat and saw the shark very close to me. It tried to bite me on my neck but he couldn't. Some how I managed to swim off water into the house where the shark appeared once again. He followed me in to my room and I left him in there closing the door. Then I felt bad he was going to die and my dad helped me get it out by throwing meat at him but the shark would only tried to aim at me! The shark was not hurting me. Later it came back this time with an alligator in his mouth. Another family went into the water and I remembered thinking I should warn them but I didn't. The kids faced the shark and came back. Nothing happened. I remember the horrible feeling of having the shark near me teasing me on biting on my neck but not hurting me...
