REASONS WHY A NARCISSIST MAY PROLONG DIVORCE CASES.
There are a few reasons why a narcissist may do this:
1.They want to continue to control you:
A narcissist thrives on having power and control over others. By dragging out the divorce, they can continue to exert their control over you and your life.
2.They want to punish you:
A narc will often drag out the divorce in an attempt to control and torture their former spouse. This is done out of a need to punish, inflict pain, and/or humiliate.
3.They are using you for emotional supply:
Narcissists are notoriously difficult to divorce. They often use their partner’s emotional needs against them, dragging out the process for as long as possible.
- They enjoy conflict and drama
Narcissists love conflict because it makes them feel superior. They also enjoy the drama and chaos.
They want to keep the spotlight on themselves and cause as much havoc as possible.
- They cannot let go
Dragging out the divorce can be a way for the narcissist to continue keeping their partner in limbo, unsure of what their future holds, in order to maintain power over them. They may also not want to see their partner move on.
6.They want to keep your assets
If there are significant assets at stake in your divorce, a narcissist may try to drag out the process in order to keep as much of those assets as possible.
