If your husband is a somatic narcissist and has been unfaithful with many women and men how does this relate to his sexual abuse as a child?

A person who has been sexually abused as a child doesn't even

realize the damage has already occured mentally. Either the child

will keep this abuse a secret or if the family should find out it

is kept secret. Either way the child usually never wins and is

never sent for psychological treatment in their younger years.

Sexually abused people live as if there is a hollow in the pit of

their very soul and sometimes it takes years to surface. They never

really get over it, but with psychological counselling they can

certainly live normal lives. Sexually abused people are also very

guarded (to protect themselves) and thus, they may come off as

being narcissistic, but they really aren't. They seldom mean to

hurt others, but because of their sexual abuse they usually can't

find a happy medium with a sexual partner. Trust is a big issue

here. Marcy When you know better, you do better. If he's dealing

with his past, there is no reason to continue the bad behavior in

the present or the future. Tell him to keep it in his pants or dump

him. It's just an excuse, not a reason if he keeps on cheating on

you.
