READ THIS BLOG
There is a growing number of blogs out there detailing a spouse’s divorce experience. This is a great one.

Onemomsbattle.com
For anyone who has ever felt hopeless while going through a difficult divorce, read what Tina, the blogger,  has been able to achieve, and mostly by herself.  The tagline is: “Narcisstic Personality Disorder and Divorce.”
Tina’s premise is that the family court system does not deal appropriately with with those individuals who have this disorder either diagnosed or not, and act out in ways harmful to both the former spouse and the children.

Those with this disorder, often use the legal system to harass and emotionally batter their families.  The way our legal system is structured, they can and do get away with it!

What is amazing in reading her posts and the many comments, is that so many men have very similar behavior characteristics. For any of you who have been going through unrelenting divorce litigation with a former spouse, you may find similarities to your own situation.  She writes so well, and with a sense of humor and gratitude for all the support she receives from her readers.

She is hoping that the legal system will someday recognize the damage that those who have this disorder [and in her case, her X has been officially diagnosed] and will fashion remedies to deal with it.
