Interesting, Buterfly --- it almost sounds, from your description of how he responds when previously you fetched him without Dad, as if your son has somehow been expecting dad to leave ? Tell him naturally, and not as if this is a terrible thing which either of you need to feel guilty about. Tell him that he may have noticed that tehre have been some problems between mom and dad, and that adults sometimes, even if they try hard, don't manage to work out a good way to be hapy with each other, and that when this happens its usually best for them to separate. But that you both love him and won't love him any the less, and that his dad will be able to continue seeing him, and that none of this is HIS ( the boy's ) fault.
I like Chelle's idea that you and your husband see and talk this over with him, together.
