What does a marriage with out the physical do to a man
I have a male friend at work that is seperated and going through a divorce at the moment.He said that the reason for getting out is that there was no sex in the marriage she always accused him of just being interested in her when he wanted sex with her.They have been married for 28 years.

I just want to know how to support him because it seems like his ego and self esteem is very low.He is now searching love and happiness all over the place jumping from one woman to the next......

Simply re-assure him that his wife was mistaken and obviously had her own deep personal problems about sex ; and that it says nothing bad about him that she couldn';t manage it and never sought the therapy she really needed --- but discourage him from trying to re-assure himself by a hectic rash of affairs which are merely dangerous, and don't be tempted into trying to apply some sexual reassurance yourself.
