New Narcissism Book: Cope With Your Narcissistic Husband & Saving Your Marriage

Aug 15, 2023

If you have a frustratingly egocentric spouse, divorce is not your only option. Find out how to save your marriage by reading “Disarming the Narcissist: How to Stay Married to a Narcissistic Partner and Still Be (Reasonably) Happy”.

You had heard of narcissists before, but you ignored the signs. When you first met him, your spouse was charming. He was self-confident, too, and so attractive! The fact that he only talked about himself didn’t bother you at first, because he was such an interesting person. You fell in love. This book addresses the challenges of being in a relationship with a narcissist and the building (or rebuilding) of a genuine and loving connection with them, if at all possible.

Over time, you found out that he doesn’t seem to care about your feelings. In fact, he doesn’t seem to care about anyone except for himself! You’re experiencing love and pain at the same time. You found out what manipulation and gaslighting are. And here you are, in a toxic, codependent relationship with a narcissist.

If you think you can save your relationship, you need to read “Disarming the Narcissist: How to Stay Married to a Narcissistic Partner and Still Be (Reasonably) Happy”. This book, available here on Amazon, was written by a team of five authors - Nora Simpson, Kristi Brock, Zara Hamilton, Maureen McLain, and Wendy Keith. These women, all of whom have been in a relationship with a narcissist, share their experiences and offer practical advice on coping with narcissistic behaviors in a marriage or committed relationship.

Narcissists (or "narcs", for short) can be brutal to live with. Some narcs are physically abusive. All are emotionally abusive. And while the book's introduction states that physical abuse is beyond the scope of its help (and to just get out of a physically abusive relationship), it suggests that emotional abuse can sometimes be managed, or at least "coped" with. But it takes work and desire to instill self-respect and self-worth into oneself (the emotionally abused person) again, and to enjoy life and interests apart from your narc. Additionally, both parties also have to want the relationship to continue. If either you or your narc wants out now, the authors say, the relationship is probably doomed.

In this particular “Disarming the Narcissist” book, you will find practical strategies for communication, dealing with manipulation, overcoming emotional abuse, and coping with the lack of empathy. The book combines the stories of five women at different life stages who managed to find ways to be relatively happy in their relationships (or at least have found coping mechanisms until the time was right to leave). You'll be sure to find tools and tips which will be helpful for your particular situation.

The authors offer different perspectives on dealing with a narcissistic husband, wife or partner. If you would like to keep your relationship, you'll learn that recapturing your self-esteem will help reduce your frustration with your spouse’s behavior, and change it for the better. If, however, you believe you can no longer stay in your relationship, you will find the support you need to prepare to leave your narc.

The book, which was first published in 2017, is available for purchase on Amazon in both Kindle and paperback format. It has a 4.1-star rating (as of this post), with a multitude of positive reviews.

“This book is very helpful in the realization that I’m not crazy, I’m not alone, and it’s okay to stay,” one reader wrote in their review. “I’ve been wondering if staying with my narcissist was really the best for my children and me. The ups and downs are real and everything is not my fault. It’s amazing to read about the lengths other women have gone to appease their spouses. It’s very helpful to read about how others have dealt with the same heartbreaking situations that I have.”

Recover emotionally and explore the possibilities of rekindling your connection with your partner, even when narcissism is part of the package.
