Does anyone ever remember calling out strange or bad behaviors to their narc partners before they knew they had NPD? I did. Throughout the relationship I noticed things, and I would tell him about them. He never had any reply, and I didn't push it. Now, knowing what he is I'm terrified of him. If I had known, I would not have done this. Some of the things were "You're a bully", "You have a lying habit", "You like to knock people down and expect them to wipe your boots on their way back up." Early on he would roll his eyes over any little thing I said or asked for even when it was in front of people. He did have an explanation saying it was because his back hurt. I admit it took me a long time to figure out the lying. I trusted him and had no idea the extent he would go to to protect his ego. In addition, he twists words and spins things. Several times I told him that he should have been a politician. He lies more than he tells the truth.

@Limp I would never have given up on my marriage unless I knew for sure what happened to make it fail and that there was no possible way to repair it due to his mental condition. I have found comfort in some things I've learned about people with NPD. My husband fits the bill of everything I've read and listened to about the disorder. Somehow knowing these things makes me feel better. He most likely loved me as much as his resources would allow. In fact narcissists do have some empathy, unlike sociopaths who don't. Narcissists have a lot of shame. In fact, they don't even like themselves. They act superior and all knowing, but in fact it's a facade. Personally, I think this is part of their identity crisis. They don't have successful, romantic relationships. It just doesn't happen. They are so busy making themselves feel better that they miss out on life and all of the good things in their lives. They destroy everything in their paths including themselves. I have actually grieved over the fact that I feel sorry for him. He destroyed everything good he could have had.
