Do all men leave during a mid-life crisis?

do all men leave their partners when going through this. my partner doesn't think he is going through this but he has lost all care for us and his job. he doesn't know how he feels but says he just doesn't care

Most men do not leave during a midlife transition. Given your description of his symptoms, it sounds very much like a midlife transition.

During midlife crisis, yes most men leave.
A midlife transition that is not a crisis is different. If this is a midlife transition, but not a midlife crisis, he may be open to counseling or at least some sort of influence and guidance from you.

I have read that most men do leave and are drawn to having an affair because they only feel the infatuation for another woman when they are going thru this. They need emotional "help" from anyone other than their wife since she is the "Problem" in their minds. Of course, this depends on the level of emotional wounding during early adolescence. Please check out this web site: for more info on the subject.

Hugs for you.
