how did your five year old know before you do? you should try talking to your (ex?) husband to confirm it, first. if he is leaving you for someone else, well let him, but make the "new girl" is aware of it. he might do the same thing again.
I'm so sorry, op. Honestly, I'd say this is good for you even though it must hurt a lot right now. If he cheated(which I assume since he claims he's in love with another woman) and has to get your young child to tell you, you're better off. Let him be someone else's problem. Though I will give a small piece of advice. He was wrong and terrible..but try not to say anything bad about him around your child. He was a terrible husband, but he's still his father.
That act alone should show him as an unfit parent, and go a long way towards giving you primary custody, or maybe even sole custody. No child should ever be put in that kind of position. All of the ugliness of divorce should be kept away from the children, and both parents should keep a united front to them, letting them know that even though the parents couldn't work things out that they both love the children as much as ever.
testy, testy. It's advice* as a noun, the verb is advise, in your haste to attack you must not have noticed. Though it was presumptive of them, if OP isn't upset then I might suggest letting it lie? It certainly wasn't malicious and in your fury any of your righteous anger is weakened by grammatical error.
