why was "he wants to go visit his wife" considered wrong?

It is a grammatically correct sentence and I would report that as a correct answer.

Is it an grammatically correct sentence in English?

Yes, it is completely natural, and that's what I would have put down myself if the word selection had given me the option.

"A grammatically..." "an" is only used for vowels or words that start with a vowel sound. Then you will have a grammatically correct sentence...

Huy, I can't believe you got away with that for a year.

"He wants to go visit his wife should be the correct answer." In fact, I might remove "he wants to go visiting his wife" as correct. I'm not sure if the exact grammatical reason, but the "ing" seems to only work if it's a continuous activity or something like that ("he wants to go walking/hiking/fishing/skiing/sightseeing" vs "he wants to go eat/sleep/make the bed/cook/fold clothes/wash dishes.") I wish I could explain why these two are different. Thanks!

As a native speaker, it's completely natural to me. The first responder was correct.
