A short post but a very informative article written by Mark Banschick, M.D. What Awful Marriages & Cults Have in Common (May 28, 2013) Here

Please note: In the article Mark Banschick, M.D. writes, “Many abusers do, in fact “love” their wives (or husbands), only to abuse them when frustrated or when under the influence.” The word “love” is in quotation marks as psychopaths are incapable of love. A psychopath has shallow emotions and their partner, the victim, is used and abused by the disordered individual to serve their own selfish ends. A psychopath always need to have someone by their side, be it a partner, a colleague or a “friend”. To keep in mind, all relationshipa are based on use and abuse.
