    In my opinion, a narcissist can surely love a person. It is only when something or someone happens to enter in that perfect life does something actually run inside the narcissist's mind. At that moment, the narcissism inside the person tends to overcome the love he/she has with the person. But at the end, it's up to the person to decide which way to be stronger. Partner's role and behavior also matters a lot.

    He can convince himself (and his spouse) that he loves her, for as long as it suits him to think that way.

    I believe that surely a narcissist could love his spouse.  This disorder doesn't have to limit everyone from being able to love.

    narcissist - inordinate fascination with oneself; excessive self-love; vanity; erotic gratification derived from admiration of one's own physical or mental attributes.

    A narcissist loves what a person does for their ego.  It can appear that it's unconditional love until the person no-longer provides value to the narcissist's ego.

    How real is unconditional love anyway? What is the balance between self love and love unconditional love for another?

    Answer: Love thy lover as you love yourself.

    If you  can love thy lover as you love yourself.  You are not a narcissist.

    Sadly, a narcissist cannot love anyone but one person, THEM SELF!

    Can you love more than one person? YES.
    Can a narcissist love more than him/herself? YES.

    Do you truly understand what narcissism is?

    Perhaps that person can "love", but they can't love another beyond themselves.
