Stating that "sex" may be a part of the problem is really an understatement. Being a widower (19 years) and being in a relationship with a gentleman friend for approx. 11 1/2 years, I can attest to the fact that it is a major problem in many cases. From my experience, with my friend and in talking to a number of other male friends I have found that one of the most frequent causes for the male to leave (or step outside the marriage) is because after 30/40/50 years the wife wants to forget the physical aspect of the union and dwell only on the aspects of keeping a presentable home and tending to the grandchildren --- totally shutting down the physical closeness that once brought the two together. The woman shuts the husband out both emotionally and physically which, in turn, sends him into the arms of someone like myself that is still very much attuned to their emotional and physical needs. I also have friends who are in thier 80's and 90's that are still together because they stay in tune with their companions needs and desires. Age does alter ones' ability to perform sex to a degree but it also allows one to find alternate ways to still fulfill their partners emotional and physical needs --- a step which most wives of many years choose not to take advantage of.
