I want to explain it to him so he will understand, he is 6 almost 7 and not confuse him. I know he will ask a lot of question after i tell him. He does live with me and my husband and sees his dad on the weekend and sometimes during the weekday.
I went to party that my friend wanted to go to and i had gotten drunk and had sex with his father and didn't remeber who i slept with. I found out i was pregnant and i told my friend and when we were talking about it other people over heard it and passer it on. He found out last, and remembered me since he didn't drink or anything. I was then basically home schooled for a while, senior year i went back and met my husband who we were friends for a while and then dated, he knew i had a son. I met my sons father after he said he was the father and we talked so i could know his history of medical stuff and we talked.
I let him meet his son and he visited him on the weekend when he came home from college, i did online college to be home with my son. I got engaged and in August 26 i got married,

I think that at that age he wouldn't be able to get past the expectation that mommies and daddies are always together. Also, and I might be wrong about this, I think the age of reason for most people starts around 8. Your son could be an exception, though being his mother you're more than likely biased in that regard. It's probably best to wait until he's a few years older and to try and just give him the old "I'll explain it to you when you're older" line in the meantime.
Possibly, if you truly do not want to leave him without some kind of answer, a child psychiatrist can explain to you how he or she thinks you can best handle the issue if you are set on talking to your son about it sooner rather than later.

Tell him the truth. There's no easy way. One thing though never let it seem as if his father is a really bad guy that will just mess things up I know from experience my mom and dad they broke up years ago I lived with my mom for a very long time until 2 years ago, for the past 2 years I've being living with my father he has not said one good thing about my mom and I hate that.
