Do men tend to leave their wives when they don't touch each other or kiss?

Do men leave their wives when they live separately 20-30% of the time don't touch or kiss?

Noel's response

I don't know whether there are any statistics on it, but given the circumstances you describe, it does not sound like a very rewarding relationship for either person.

Do Men Tend to Leave...
by: NWF

Yes, men tend to leave after being depressed and not knowing how to show any feelings for quite some time. They are putting you on trial in their head and you have no representation for your side. They will rewrite your history together and it will be all negative, they forget the good stuff. This depends on your ages and if he is in a midlife quandary right now.

My H paid no attention to me for 6 or so years and never spoke of dissatisfaction until he found a paramour to feed his ego. Then he left, that was 2 years ago. There is much more and none of it is good so I won't go into it now.

Give him the room he needs and watch your finances very closely. You may want to open your own checking account and control the money. He will say that he needs space and take the money to find himself a man cave--and another woman. If he won't go or do anything with you anymore--watch out, trouble is brewing. Not all men leave though, some leave only emotionally for 1 or 2 years and some split and leave you behind for 2 or 3 years or forever.

Take care of yourself as best as you can.
Hugs for you.
