I was wondering if anyone has a relationship with someone that has Anti-Social Personality Disorder and/or Narcissism? How do you make your relationship work??
I have been with my husband for 7 years and married for 5. He wasn’t diagnosed with anything until 2001, right before his 21st birthday. Sometimes I think our relationship can be so trying, that I honestly wonder if its worth it. Yet, other times its absolutely wonderful.
I have done so much research on ASPD and NP, that I could puke, so I know the warning signs and I am familiar with their personality traits. I know that it is extremely difficult to have a relationship with someone that has these personality disorders, but I am not willing to give up on my marriage. We worked extremely hard on everything and things had been so wonderful for about two years, of course we had the normal issues and problems that most couples have, but about a month ago things started sliding back into the same problems that he had in the past. Of course, now he’s attempting to make things better….
I guess my question is, how? What else can we do besides marriage counseling?? How do we make things better on our end here at home? Does anyone have any experience??
