Why don’t men give each other more support?

It actually saddens me that men don’t really make close intimate friendships with other men. It’s just “buddies”, “colleagues” or whatever. Especially grown married men, who mostly have their wife as their most trusted friend. Their wife almost always has a close group of female friends and they can express themselves with them too.

But usually if a grown man wants other male friends to confide in, the male friends see him as feminine or gay, or weak.

This saddens me because what if the wife dies (this recently happened to one of my teachers and he seems lonely af). Who will he go to for some support?
