Children of narcissists are often highly intuitive. They know when something secret is going in their family. They may not be able to put their finger exactly on it and it usually takes time for the exact truth to form but by keen observation, eventually they know the truth. Children of narcissists are often truth seekers. They are among the most empathic of individuals.
I understand this one all too well. The Narcissist/Sociopath doesn't feel the need to be present in the marriage/relationship. While you are left to raise the children, work, maintain the home & cater to his/her every demand, he/she is out having their good time and concerned only about his/her self. Your needs and desires come only after his/hers has been met......if then.
Ain't that the truth! "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" unfortunately doesn't mean that others will actually do unto you, the same. Adults leave that part out when they tell us this saying as children, and it makes it confusing and even devastating when we're older and can't understand why some people are mean or inconsiderate, even when we are nice and caring towards them.
