Domestic Theft -Domestic theft is consuming or taking control of a resource or asset belonging to (or shared with) a family member, partner or spouse without first obtaining their approval.
Domestic Theft can range all the way from using something without permission, to stealing someone’s identity, spending family money without getting agreement from the other side, to running up debts and then leaving somebody else to pay for it.
Domestic Theft is one of the most common, yet under-reported symptoms of personality disorders. In many cases, there has been habitual or frequent theft of some sort from a friend, family member or a partner.
These are forms of theft that rarely get prosecuted, because the victim is a friend or family member, laws often define family property as “community property” which is legally shared and the losses incurred are usually less than catastrophic and hence don’t warrant civil litigation.

The nature of Narcissistic Abandonment is that the full extent of the abuse is hardly apparent at the beginning of a relationship. As the Victim (spouse) fails to meet the exacting standards, the abuse grows, becomes more violent (verbally at least) and intimidating. The periods of abuse become more frequent and are longer in duration. The Victim finally becomes aware that they have become the venomous vessel, the poison container for the narcissist to spit their viciousness into.
