The narcissist is another word for a person who lives in a world of lies, and demands others do so with them. I would pray, stay strong and live by example.
The bible gives info. According to experts, narcissism is arrogance, shallow emotions, lying, shamelessness, inability for remorse, projection and exploitation of others. The bible describes these same behaviors ie - proverbs 21:24 The proud and arrogant man-"Mocker" 2Tim3 :2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud,abusive, disobedient to their parents,ungrateful, unholy,without love, unforgiving, slanderous,without self-control, brutal,not lovers of the good, 4treacherous,rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God etc.

I have made around 100 entries in blogs concerning love, respect, and marriage. The proportion of women questioners to men is about 70/30.

Just curious Glenn: have you ever told a man not to "uncover his WIFE's nakedness"?! Just for once?!

If you do this: 1Corinthians 11:3-10, 13, 15-16, 14:34-35, Ephesians 5:22-24, 33, Colossians 3:18, 1Timothy 2:11-14, Titus 2:5, 1Peter 3:1-2, 5-6, and he does this: 1Corinthians 7:33, Ephesians 5:25-29, 31, 33, Colossians 3:19, 1Timothy 5:8, 1Peter 3:7, this resolves the situation. Your three options are to pray in submission to the Lord, get true Christian counseling, and rebuke him before the Church. However, rancor and rebellion hurt romance, Deuteronomy 31:27, Isaiah 1:5, 63:10 / Proverbs 21:9, 19, 25:24.
p.s. Don't uncover your husbands nakedness, but Galatians 6:1. 2) Submit to your husband. 3) Pray. 4) Be kind, Ephesians 4:32. 5) All, get saved and trust in Jesus Christ.

If other people are telling you that he treats you in a narcissistic manner (controlling), it could very well be true (unless they are simply badmouthing him).
If it is only one person who is badmouthing him, it might be that they don't like you and want you both to break up.
A definite tell tale sign that he is a narcissist (and you have to be very honest with yourself) is if he has 'trained'/conditioned you to accept abuse (notice that you will also be accepting abuse from others outside the relationship).
If he is a narcissist, GET OUT before it gets DANGEROUS (and it WILL). There is absolutely NO WAY that a narcissist will change (I know, I also post on a NARCISSIST FORUM). Get out and also learn not to allow abuse.

When a person is 'underhanded' (sly, sneaky, play schemes), they are also insecure because their conscience haunts them about being sneaky. They try to redeem their conscience and their ego by becoming a control freak (narcissist).
But why would you be accusing him of being a narcissist? Are you falsely accusing him so that you can obtain pity for being a victim?
Maybe it's you who are the sneaky schemer.
People do unto others as their conscience does to them. Why are you 'hunting' to label him as a narcissist?
If you simply don't AGREE with all his decisions, that doesn't give you the right to label him a villain for your convenience (it will come back to you).

There's a little couplet you might want to take to heart, Regina:
How very selfish others can be.
They think of themselves instead of me!

Your imagining that your husband is narcissistic could very well prove that you are narcissistic.
---KarenD on 10/18/09|
Narcissistic is a word that is used multiple ways. It could be used to describe someone who is very selfish and self-centered, the world revolves around them. Or, it could be used as a diagnosis of a personality disorder, which you could look up on Google.
