I am sorry to hear about this situation. You are on the title as owners, and neither he nor she can remove your names without your conscent. So even if he agrees, he cannot do anything about your names.
If/when they divorce, the Court may split their interest between them (i.e. decide who it goes to). If it goes to her, then he would have to quitclaim his interest to her (meaning would give her his ownership of the home). However, the family court has no jurisdiction over you and cannot order you to quitclaim your interest to her, too. So after the divorce - in a worst case scenario - it would be her and you on the title.
Then, she would have to go to civil court and seek what is known as a partition. This is when joint owners cannot agree as to what to do with the home. The Court will order a party or parties to buy out the other parties, or order the property sold and proceeds split, or whatever else the Judge believes is equitable. It is on a case by case basis.
Also note that it is very possible that the Court may give him the home in the divorce, and order her to give him her ownership via quitclaim.
So someone in your situation can say "you can get rid of my son's ownership via a divorce maybe, but not ours. Perhaps you want to negotiate with our family as to what to do with the home NOW, as opposed to going through two lawsuits (divorce and partition) in an attempt to get our names off, which may not even work."
