Our expert says:
Separation and divorce is rarely entirely the fault of one member of the couple, but often someone really wants to avoid facing any contribution they made to the situation, and to solely blame the other partner. However, your primary question is about the child. It is sad if your wife doesn't place his interests first, and she should be invited to recognize that it doesn't matter whose "fault" this was, it's a situation in which you both need to work together to minimize the distress caused to him, and to keep any adult squabbles for times and places outside of his hearing. Most kids seem to cope with separation an divorce better than one might expect, but need a calm atmosphere, and an explanation within terms they can understand, and consistent emotional support from both parents. Remind her pleasantly, that while you can divorce each other, neither of you divorce the child. Be open to any questions he may have.
