Why do we think our dreams have a long duration, while in reality, it is a short time, is there any explanation for?

Yesterday, I slept very early and as I slept I had a very long dream. Actually, I slept around 8:00 pm and I even got married and had grown-up kids in the dream, however, when I woke up and checked the time, it was just 8:49 am.

So what happened? How could I have lived very long in my dream while in actual sense, it only lasted for minutes?

I welcome all comments from my fellow members.

Me personally, I think the reason why we spent a lot of time in our dreams when in reality it’s a short duration is that; the unit for time measurement when we are asleep is different from in real life.

dreams are dreams and there is no explanation for it.

@NiiAyiBontey this question is very deep. I think we need some philosophers here.
