A divorce can be hard to deal with, especially if you're not the spouse initiating it. You're blindsided by your spouse's wish to separate, and you hope you can work things out. However, if your spouse isn't willing, then you do need to start to move forward with the divorce process.
Most people have watched the scene multiple times in the movies. A couple sits down with their children. She is crying. He fidgets awkwardly. Together, they explain to the children how much they love them. Although it may seem stereotypical, informing your children about your real-life divorce may not be that different than couples who do so on screen.
