    Gordon, you are going to have to decide on letting go. You have been there for your wife through much, you have been giving 90% and she only 10% if that much, she does not want to change no matter how much you pray or say you pray or of being a Christian. Your life is more important than allowing someone to continue abusing you. I pray to God that you decide on getting your life together and letting your wife go and get hers together, you’ve done your part and then some.

    I would like to add to your advice to Karen: As a co-parent with a narcissistic ex, I will face this conversation with my kids someday. I agree with forgive and help but what I would like to add: if the abuse continues, Karen does not need to accept it. She can set boundaries. If the abuse continues, a neutral third party could be added to provide the needs of those parents and some space for Karen. Karen is in my prayers.
