Getting a divorce is hard enough, but when you divorce a narcissist, you have an entirely different battle on your hands. While some people just use the phrase “narcissist” as an insult, narcissism is an actual mental-health diagnosis, and it is not to be taken lightly.
If you are married to a narcissist, it has very likely exhausted you; to the point where divorce may actually seem like such a chore. You know that it needs to be done, but you try to avoid it because you are dreading the process so much. Based on our experience, divorce is often the best, and sometimes, only, option for you if you are struggling with remaining married to a narcissist.
Narcissists will drain you emotionally. They only care about having their needs met, and very rarely reciprocate. It’s not even necessarily malicious. Rather, narcissists are “wired” differently than most people and generally do not know how to care for other people’s needs, or put other people first.
Narcissism takes a toll on relationships because the narcissistic partner is often completely unwilling to compromise. Inevitably, this will complicate the relationship and it is also very often why therapy cannot work for a couple when one is a narcissist. It seems as though divorce is an eye-opener for our clients who are married to narcissists. They finally realize that their narcissistic spouse is unable to see things from any perspective other than their own. The narcissist becomes consistently angry and vindictive.
Narcissists will also not think twice about involving their children in their divorce proceedings, and using them against their soon-to-be ex-spouse.
