LISTEN TO THE SHOW:
Being married to someone who’s preoccupied with his own attributes is lonely and tiring.
When you’re in a relationship with a narcissist, hypersensitivity is the norm.
It’s frustrating when you make a comment and he gets defensive at the perceived attack when you didn’t intend one.
Narcissists are known for having challenges in sustaining satisfying relationships.
The big question is, can being married to a narcissist ever be gratifying?
In my experience, your narcissist or extremely self-absorbed man can and will bring tenderness and compassion if you have the right skills.
Here’s What You’ll Hear:
- My guest Carol’s husband was diagnosed with a narcissistic personality disorder. He was so angry that a marriage counselor told her to get a restraining order. So she did, and they separated by court order. But she not only saved her marriage she made it safe and loving again. She’s going to tell us how she did it.
- You’ve heard The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week at least 1,000 times. But what if it’s just the opposite of what would bring you closer?
Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me returned.
I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.
