The narcissistic husband assumes he is always the focal point of the family and the marriage.
But being married to a narcissistic husband can be a very complicated and thorny journey.
A narcissistic husband can be vain, insensitive to your needs, violent, and exceptionally critical of you.
A narcissist can be very intense in the beginning of a relationship and bombard you with love and attention, and placing you on a pedestal. However, his true personality starts to reveal itself as the wife endures his criticism, insults, possible beatings or other forms of abuse.
Loving and living with a narcissist takes a heavy toll; the wife takes years of abuse and loses her sense of self-worth and remains submissive to his demands.
Fundamentally, they are unstable, like three legs on a table.
