What’s the difference between an emotionally unavailable man and a narcissist? Expects unreasonable or special and favourable priority treatment. Demands automatic and full compliance with his or her expectations.A thin line and someone defining it, but there is a line there nonetheless. Firmly convinced that he or she is unique and, being special, can only be understood by, should only be treated by, or associate with, other special or unique, or high-status people (or institutions). Requires excessive admiration, adulation, attention and affirmation. Is “interpersonally exploitative”, i.e., uses others to achieve his or her own ends 7. Is unable or unwilling to identify with or acknowledge the feelings and needs of others 8.Last week, I wrote an article discussing reasons why the idea that men shouldn’t get married for financial reasons was false.In the article, I pointed out several purely financial reasons for men to get married, reasons that applied very well to women as well.However, there are several specific economic benefits to marriage over cohabitation that, when considered together, paint a positive economic view of marriage.First, being married means you have the right to receive property settlements and support in the event of divorce.Sharing your life with someone is hard enough, so do you really want to sign up to be with someone who is so into himself that they will never even notice you, your wants and your desires? "My Kids Are The Only Thing I Care About": This guy is a tricky one.
According to the Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) group it’s “An all-pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behaviour), need for admiration or adulation and lack of empathy, usually beginning by early adulthood and present in various contexts.” How do you know if he (or she) is a narcissist? Arrogant, haughty behaviours or attitudes coupled with rage when frustrated, contradicted, or confronted.
Many people responded with the great point that many of the benefits described in that article are also applicable to people who cohabitate. The benefit of reducing the cost per person for rent, energy, and so on occur when people are simply roommates, regardless of their relationship.
Also, simply cohabitating instead of actually being married also avoids some of the of marriage, such as legal entanglement.
Second, being married means the ability to obtain family health, dental, and other insurance benefits.
The exact rules on this vary from state to state, but generally it is much more difficult to obtain insurance through your partner’s employment if you are not married.
