Is My Spouse a Narcissist?

Navigating through a divorce can be tumultuous. When your spouse exhibits narcissistic tendencies, it can further complicate matters, making an already challenging process even more difficult. At Friedman & Mirman Co., L.P.A., we understand the complexities of dealing with a narcissistic spouse during a divorce. We are here to guide you every step of the way.

Narcissism is not just about self-love or being overly confident. It's a personality disorder that can seriously affect relationships and make divorces especially contentious. Narcissists often lack empathy, can be manipulative, and have a grandiose sense of self-importance.

Recognizing these traits in your spouse can be a significant first step in understanding how to approach your divorce proceedings. Here's what you need to know:

Lack of Empathy

A hallmark of narcissism is a lack of empathy. If your spouse consistently dismisses your feelings or shows little regard for your well-being, it could be a sign of narcissism.

Manipulative Behavior 

Narcissists are known for their manipulative tactics. They may attempt to control the narrative of the divorce, painting themselves as the victim and you as the instigator.

Grandiose Sense of Self-Importance

Narcissists often have an inflated sense of self-worth and believe they are superior to others. This belief can manifest as a sense of entitlement, which can complicate divorce negotiations.

If you recognize these traits in your spouse, it's essential to approach your divorce with a strategic plan. Our experienced attorneys at Friedman & Mirman Co., L.P.A. are equipped with the skills and knowledge to protect your interests and rights. We understand the unique challenges presented when divorcing a narcissist and are committed to providing you with the support you need.
