Can you be responsible for your spouse's narcissism?
The short answer is no. Narcissism is not caused in adulthood. There is nothing one adult can do to another adult that will cause something as serious as narcissism. The adult psyche is far too well established and functional to be destroyed in the way one with narcissism has their psych destroyed. For proof just look at all the survivors of the Jewish concentration camps. If any amount of mistreatment could cause narcissism it would surely show up there.

Short answer: Yes. However, in most states, if you file for legal separation you will then be separate in financial obligations and ownership of property. Legal separation div…ides the community property rights/obligations established by marriage.
It's when someone is obsessed/in love with themselves. It comes from a mythological character named Narcissus who fell in love with his own reflection. According to Am…erican Dictionary it is "abnormal admiration of one's self." it is vanity. or according to dictionary.comExcessive love or admiration of oneself. See Synonyms at conceit.A psychological condition characterized by self-preoccupation, lack of empathy, and unconscious deficits in self-esteem.Erotic pleasure derived from contemplation or admiration of one's own body or self, especially as a fixation on or a regression to an infantile stage of development.The attribute of the human psyche charactized by admiration of oneself but within normal limits. I'm prone to think of narcissism in the Disorder sense, which, based on many accounts, is self-obsession. It doesn't always look like self-love. But they're in a continual quest to maintain a sense of being able to love themselves in the form of what he sees as 'ideal', which is his 'pretend' self. At first glance, any of these explanations don't make narcissism look like much of a big deal. The bigger deal is the process itself, which always will involve the making use of those around him to achieve that end. Narcissism describes the trait of excessive self-love, based on self-image or ego.
Answer yes * Only if the couple reside in a community property state and the debt is incurred during the marriage. …All CP states allow a spouse to use the "innocent spousal" defense concerning marital debts if the spouse was not aware of the debt made or had no control over the matter. Texas and Wisconsin are not "true" community property states when it relates to marital debts solely incurred. In all other states sole debts belong to the spouse who incurred them.
depending on who was using the card, that's who's fault it would be... I'm going to assume since it was your spouse's credit card, that your spouse is then responsible for it.
Unless the survivor(s) signed some type of contract or agreement to be responsible for the deceased's medical bills, it is the deceased's ESTATE which is liable for the expens…e - NOT the survivors. HOWEVER: In reality, if the surviving spouse also happens to be the Executor of their deceased spouse's estate, they WILL, have to pay for whatever medical bills may be outstanding from the proceeds of the estate that they are administering.
Unless the spouse signed any documents incurring liability for the deceased's medical bills, they are not responsible. The deceased's ESTATE is responsible for the medical bil…ls, and all other obligations owed by the deceased at the time of their death.
The laws presume that the spouse inherits at least half, if not all, of the other spouse's assets. But the estate has to liquidate all debts before they can transfer any asset…s to the spouse. One way or another, the spouse ends up paying the debt. The spouse has some right in all real property owned by the husband. If the assets are not enough to cover the debt, the real property may have a lien placed against it to cover those debts.
No. However, if a creditor sues the debtor and wins a judgment, in most cases the judgment can be executed against joint marital property, such as bank accounts. Therefore, a… new spouse can be affected by the premarital debts of their partner.
Spouse's credit card charges My husband says he actually heard the answer to this on a radio show the other day. The answer given was this: As long as no one else'…s names are on the credit card (or, I assume, the original application) only your father was responsible for his debt. Your mother should be okay. However, I don't know if this varies from state to state. It would be wise to check with an acct. maybe or with the atty. handling your father's estate - just to be on the safe side. More input from FAQ Farmers: * This happened to my elderly mom. The CC companies are crooks! They sent her cards with her name on it and the account number of my deceased father's cards. Thank God I was there because if she had used any of the cards even once she would have been responsible for the whole debt. As it was, I was able to stop her, contact the credit card companies and had the debt cancelled as there was no estate to speak of.(a small threat of contacting the attorney general of the state of Colorado about fraud seemed to help alot) Good luck * The only person responsible for a cc debt is the person(s) whose names are on the account. A spouse is only responsible if the account is held jointly or if the married couple lived in a community property state. "CP" states consider all marital assets and all debts equally owned and equally owed.
Even if your name is not on the loan you have to pay for it if: You are next of kin (which you are if you are married) or You are in the Will of the deceased.
In Tennessee is a surviving spouse responsible for the deceased spouse's debts if there is no estate?
Tennessee is not a community property state, if the surviving spouse was not a joint debtor he or she is not responsible for debt incurred by the decedent. The exep…tion would be, if there is a home that is encumbered by a mortgage and/or loan the surviving spouse will have to continue the agreement whether he or she was named on the lending contract in order to retain possession of the property.
Answer Unless there was a prenumptual agreement, half if you decide to divorce. However the damage to the credit rating would be limited t…o the account holder(s) linked to the accounts. * In the US married couples only share credit history when it pertains to jointly held debts. If the married couple reside in a community property state both parties are responsible for any debts incurred during the marriage and both share equally in any assets acquired during the marriage. If the married couple do not reside in a CP state neither spouse is responsible for the a debt that is solely incurred by the other spouse. In states that allow Tenancy By The Entirety property, said property cannot be attached by creditors when only one spouse is the debtor.
NO, not if my name was not on that card
Answer . \nOnly on joint accounts are both spouses responsible for repayment of the debt. Unless, they reside in a community property state, if so, they are both responsibl…e for debts incurred regardless of which one holds the account. Wisconsin and Texas treat some spousal debts differently when it pertains to community property laws. Some states have rather odd laws that might hold a spouse accountable if the debt is related to "living neccessities". These statutes are seldom used by creditors; if cited it is unlikely the plaintiff could provide the necessary proof.
Answer Texas is a community property state and the issue of marital debt is complexed as it is not considered a "true" CP state due to the way in which mar…ital debt responsibility is assigned. In most cases the surviving spouse can be held responsible for the credit card debts of the deceased spouse if the surviving spouse the account even though he or she was not named as an account holder. The best choice is always to discuss such matters with an attorney qualified in the state's probate law.
How will your ex-spouse's bankruptcy affect you if you had a joint mortgage which you are still responsible for?
Spouse's bankruptcy It can. Since even a quit-claimed mortgage loan continues to show on your personal credit report, it MAY get a notation "included in bankruptcy" (if it wa…s included). This will cause you problems because creditors will be looking at Your public records trying to justify that notation. Keep track of your credit. Yours is one of the few situations where inserting a consumer statement onto the bureaus would be a good idea. More input from FAQ Farmers: . I think it's important to understand that you are talking about two different things: (1) ownership, and (2) liability. Signing a quitclaim deed means you transferred ownership of the property to your ex-spouse, so the deed will only be in your ex-spouse's name, but this in no way transfers your liability on the mortgage document to your ex-spouse. The mortgage lender will still hold you both responsible for the mortgage regardless of whose name is on the deed since both of your names are still on the mortgage document. And, even if the divorce court ordered one spouse to be responsible, in Indiana at least the mortgage lender can normally still sue both spouses if there is a default on the mortgage. I'm only licensed in Indiana, and if you were in Indiana, my guess is that if your ex-spouse filed bankruptcy on the mortgage, the fact that you quitclaimed the house will not stop the mortgage lender from pursuing you for payments. Of course, different things might happen in different states since each state has their own laws on the subject. Please keep in mind that this in no way constitutes legal advice but is just my take on the hypothetical facts. More information: Secured debt, such as a mortgage loan, will not be included in the bankruptcy. If the mortgage loan is still in joint names with your ex-spouse, she will remain liable for the debt, and jointly responsible for its repayment.
