How do you explain the situation to your child?

Regardless of what I’m going through, I know I still have to explain to my kid how things have changed and he won’t have a complete parents’ home again. I know he sees how his friends' parents live happily and wonder why he can’t have the same. It hurts to see him so confused. I’ve tried to explain that sometimes relationships just don't work out the way we want them to. I also remind him how much he is loved and that I will always be there for him, no matter what. He’s my everything and I'll do whatever it takes to make sure he has the best life possible. He’s my everything so I want to know the best way to explain the entire situation of being a single parent. What do you say to your child? How do you make your child understand that he can only see his dad on some particular days?
