Reply To: Could use an ear and validation. I'm broken!

foggymuck – I am so sorry for your situation. The behavior you are describing is that of a disordered man. He could be diagnosed as antisocial, narcissist or borderline – there is a lot of overlap among these Cluster B disorders. The actual diagnosis doesn’t matter. He is an exploiter and a manipulator. He targeted you on purpose. And he will never change.

I’m afraid you were deceived. I recommend that you get out of the relationship as fast as you can. I also recommend that you claim a status of “married filing single” for your taxes. You should not take on his burden.
