Ordinarily, I’d say “no” to this question but it depends on many factors. Ultimately, the welfare of the child is of the utmost importance. Parents must provide them with a home that fosters positivity and love, caring and responsibility. As lotusfly said, if this can be maintained, even after the love has died, then it behooves the parents to do so. Maybe the answer is in an "open" marriage where both estranged spouses can maintain a separate relationship outside the home...and only outside the home so as not to exhibit immorality/adultery right in front of the child(ren).
