Do you people actually know what Narcissism is? it's loving your physical appearance, it's not a divorcable offence, however if it's narcissism linked with insulting you or your children, then you could consider first discussing the problem with your spouse.

AnswerThis above is a common misconception easily explained. Narcissism technically is not about loving your physical appearance. Its actually about loving (a false) self image. ... and rejecting all else at all costs. However Histrionic, which some say is a type of narcissism - is about loving your physical body and appearance. Narcisssists apear to love themselves but in fact they do not. They are only in love with an image. That's why their egos are so fragile. It doesnt take much to shatter the mirror reflecting back and their world falls apart. they wont show it but it does. So they must Reinvent that self image over and over again to protect their true selves which is so weak and diminished they hardly know it exists. AnswerSept. 14, 2006 I do hope the person who asked this question will see this because I am upset at the "Total lack of information on narcissism" from the "Well let's see" answer! God Bless you. I am the daughter of a NPD father. I just recently found out he has NPD. He doesn't know it, nor is anyone in the family going to tell him as he is old now, would be in total denial and raging. He is not going to change! My personal opinion is that they are extremely sick people. Mentally ill. If you can honestly say that you don't mind not having an identity, and your ok with spending YOUR life being abused then I guess stay. From an outsiders view, you need help with realizing what attracted you to this person in the first place. Dig deep! Your "partner," (NPD's are incapable of being partners,) is supposed to bring something of value within himself to the relationship, and you he, to teach each other, so you can evolve together. This is what healthy relationships are about. To help each other grow. NPD's are about themselves, and only themselves! All I know is that I understand the vow's you took, but you also are living with 1% of the population. This is serious! Again, from an outsiders view, I'd like to see you love yourself first, and that is obviousely not the case, before you try loving a man. Also,you are a role model for your children. Please think long and hard at what legacy your leaving them. They will forever be watching you. Love, C.

Well let's see... if you used the "Until death do us part" vows or something similar, it unfortunately makes you a liar if you leave/divorce him. You said/vowed, "...until death do us part." I doubt that there was anything in there about changing your mind later or only as long as you felt like it. You said you'd stay with him no matter what. It also labels you as someone who's word cannot be trusted. Then there's your being a quitter. And just in case you're a religious person, God is an absolute stickler for contractual language. You promissed absolutely until death did you part. He says the only out option you have is infidelity.

Sorry for the hard ball approach. I'm sure this is very hard for you and I haven't written this to be mean but more in the hope others will read it and remember there vows. Divorce is to easy in America.

ANSWER

i wonder how you could "just find out" after 19 years of marriage,

he has always been like this i assume? since you met, dated, fell in love and got married and stayed for 19 year, all that time he will have been self obsessed, and you didnt notice?? unlikely,

i think just because there is now a name for what he has and what kind of person he is is not a good enough reason to divorce him after all this time.

my boyf has just recently in the last year been diagnosed with aspergers, which makes his personality difficult and unemotional at times, but we got together 7 years ago and he was like that then without a name to explain why,now that it has a name, is officially a disease, im not going to up and leave.

im not lecturing you on leaving or staying,

what im saying is if you fell for him like that then why would you just up and leave now that you know why?

it sounds to me you are looking for a way out

and that's perfectly understandable,

narcissists think that the world revolves around them and who would want to live with a person who never notices or cares what you need or want

but you cant fool yourself into thinking its because he has it, because you always knew what he was like, its because you don't want to live with it anymore and rightfully so if it makes him an unbearable person to be with.

so if your happiness is at steak then you should leave yes, you cant fix him and you cant stay that's all there is to it, you don't deserve any more punnishment for what is wrong with him.

i don't know if narcissists can change but if it is a possibility then its always something to consider first and try counseling but he would really have to be and show that hes committed for it to work and to be worth your staying any longer and as soon as he shows you that he isn't trying then you maybe should take action on your decision

i hope you figure this out

answer19 days, 19 years whats the difference. Get out while you can. while you have some sanity and while you still have some healthy parts left to you. He is an emotinal parasite set to suck the very lifeblood out of you.

Also there is no "Discussing" anything with an N spouse. Just gather you things up and run. No explanatoin necessary.

You can and will get over all the things he did to you. However he will be caught up in his web of lies and deciept for all eternity with no way out.

answerVows are vows between TWO people to love honor and cherish one another in sickness and in health. In the case where one is a narcissist then only one person is really putting any effort into keeping them. The N is not capable of loving in the true sense. He is not going to be loyal, faithfull, supportive or loving in any way shape or form. He will NOT stand by your side through thick and thin for better or worse. He is going to make it worse and not better. Any relationship with them is one sided only for them. you get zero. they take everythigng you got and then some. AnswerVows between two PEOPLE ... as in two humans. I hardly consider a narcissist to be anything human. They don't see themselves as human and they certainly don't treat others as anything but less than human. The narcissist didn't marry a human he married an object. You didn't marry a human you married a snake or at best an illusion. Get out.

What could happen to a US citizen that is married to an illegal immmigrant if the immigrant spouse is deported?

If the marriage is legitimate the citizen spouse will not encounter any problems with authorities. If the foreign national spouse was not permanently deported, the citizen spouse can apply for his or her reentry once the imposed time limit has expired. If the marriage is found to be one of 'convenience' the sole purpose being to enable the immigrant spouse to obtain permanent residency and citizenship, the citizen spouse can be found charged with committing a federal felony. If such is the case, the best option for the citizen spouse is to retain (or at least obtain) legal counsel from a qualified immigration attorney, and refrain from discussing the matter with anyone (especially authorities) until that has been done.

you must complete the quest The Bonds of Matrimony, which involves speaking with Maramal about marriage and wearing an Amulet of Mara which signifies that you are available to be married.

After the wedding, if you speak with your new spouse, you can determine where they will live. If you own property, your spouse can move in with you; alternatively, if your spouse owns property, you can move in with them.

What can I d now I was having affair with married man who is a narcissist his wife found out and now he has cut me out completely I am shattered?

I have recently dealt with a similar situation, I know you must be hurting very badly right now, I remember that pain. I think what you should try to do is remember all the most horrible things he ever did to you, if he is a true narcissist, there will be plenty of them. Write them down, look at them when you are missing him. Also try to remember that the narcissist never shows you his true self, you are seeing an image that he WANTS you to see. It isn't real, it is a fantasy...which is why they seem so damned perfect. It is not possible to love someone (even though it sure feels like we do) when you don't know the REAL them. Though you are feeling intense hurt right now, and you can't see it, it is truly a BLESSING that he cut you out. You should be so thankful at this moment that you AREN"T his wife, what hell that would be. That is what I try to remind myself when I miss my narcissist. Things will get better for you, don't lose hope :)


How do you accept a cheating spouse if they cheated more than eight times with the same girl?

After the first time you found out is the time you should have sat down with your spouse and talked things out and let him know you are not putting up with his cheating. After eight times he feels quite free to do this to you over and over again. Kick this spouse to the curb if he will not go for marriage counseling.


Is a narcissist capable of love?

A narcissist is not capable of love. The narcissist is a heartless, soulless individual. "Love" to the narcissist is the feeling of euphoria that he/she gets when a new narcissistic supply source has been found. Because they are extremely enamored, they project the feeling of being in madly in love with you, therefore fooling you into thinking it's genuine love. They actually might believe it themselves (kind of like pathological liars or people who pass lie detector tests) because they are mentally ill. Trying to ride out that relationship with the narcissist? Save yourself the pain and RUN!

Is it possible and if so how can the narcissistic traits of a spouse be pointed out in a very casual way so that those not familiar with narcissism start seeing that there is something wrong with him?

Well, you may want to not say things like, "See what he's doing now? That PROVES he's a narcissist!" You can't hand everyone a book on narcissim and have people check off items as they see them. Yes, I'm being a bit silly here, but don't do anything that will undermine your credibility or make you look like the one with the problem! Go about it another way.Start pointing out (to them) things that he's doing. For example, narcissists love to play mind games, lie, cheat, tear apart your self esteem, etc. You need to point those things out to your family because whether those fall under narcissistic traits or not, they'll know that something is wrong with him. If he is being mean to you, they need to know that. Do NOT put a psychological name (narcissist) on it. Just start letting them know what your spouse is doing that is causing you concern. Once you start telling family members what he (or she) is doing, then you can start laying the groundwork of putting a name to what is wrong. Abuse is abuse. Whether they reconginze your spouse as a narcissist, sociopath or just someone having a bad couple of months, they will at least know the abuse exists.Your second problem is if (best case scenario) everyone realizes that he or she is a narcissist. THEN what? You can't "force" someone to change or get help and you can't stage an intervention with the narcissist.Which leads me to your biggest problem: You are living with a narcissist. The problem here is not showing everyone else who your spouse is. The problem is that you are living the very painful life of being married to a narcissist. There is a very, very high liklihood that this person wont' change -- whether the family is involved or not. And if you were to break up and get back together, after a brief "honeymoon" period, the narcissist will treat you worse than they did in the first place. You need to evaulate what is best for you and not for the narcissist or his or her family.My heart goes out to you. Good luck.~ TAnswerI am struggling with this myself. The answer above was helpful. I agree that if you are living with the narcissist, get out, and live as far away as possible. Make it inconvenient and expensive to come and see you, and a narcissist won't do it. However, assuming the spouse has gotten out, a person with a normal sense of empathy will think, "Should I tell the other people involved?" There's the mother, the brother, the new girlfriend, the sadly neglected new girlfriend's child...the mutual friends you had in common that he keeps abusing and upsetting... The question I am posing is whether it is your duty or not to tell other people involved that this person you know and love, but that keeps hurting you, is doing it because he has narcissist personality disorder.I know it won't help the narcissist. I couldn't care less what happens to the narcissist. But will it help the other people involved if they know the truth and can accept it? Will it help them deal, will it help them get out? Will it inform their decisions?It is a particularly hard decision whether I should tell his mother or not.ANSWERmy "narcs" parents often mentioned they were concerned about him, it made things worse as he wouldn't speak to them about anything, saying they just wouldn't understand. the last time they brought up their concern i tried to explain what it was, but it frightened them so much, they phoned and told him all that id said and denied saying anything themselves. it caused so many problems between all of us, i wish i hadnt bothered!his father died last year, and since then he has just fobbed his mom off with false excuses and even bigger lies.he caused rows and tension between me and his mom, then told me she didnt want me anywhere near. i found out later he had actually told her (and all his friends) that we had finished! they will lie and go to any length to protect their narcissism, and to make sure their false self is never exposed.i hope there is a way to tell them and point out the traits, but i havent found how to yet! i think that due to the nature of this dissorder if he was exposed he would just start again elsewhere!
