My XH had all 4 of these signs. Just from what I've experienced through the stories of 99% of the betrayed men and women who post here, almost all of the WS  fall into this category of toxic. Great post, Christy. I hope some of the BS who come here take the time go to this link, read it and let the truth of it sink in.

No amount of wishiing or hoping is going to change someone. No amount of money is worth staying in a toxic relationship. Staying in a relationship where the WS exhibits all these signs( not taking responsiblity for their actions, blaming you or others or a situation for forcing them into their actions and bad decisions, rewriting history to avoid taking responsibility, and someone who repeats the same action over and over) is only setting yourself up for more hurt further down the road.

Worse off are the children of people who are involved in a toxic relationship. It teaches them that its ok to treat someone like this or that this is the norm for a relationship and that its something they deserve or just must tolerate. People learn how to treat us by what we accept. Children learn by what WE accept.
