There's been tension between them forever though. Wolverine and Cyclops have always had an antagonistic relationship. And now Wolverine's solution to this problem is to destroy the one thing Cyclops has spent the past few years building: Utopia.
Cyclops feels like Wolverine's pissing on everything he has built and he's prepared to do whatever is necessary to preserve what he see's as a symbol for mutantkind...including enlisting child soldiers.
Wolverine believes that this is the line they can't cross and that while they were willing to do the tough, dirty things to preserve what they'd built there..the main point of it was to not allow the kids to become like them so they'd have a better tomorrow.
Throw in their prior history of them arguing about redheads and you've got the spark to light the fuse of a bomb that's been ready to blow for a while now. They were never the best of friends, but always respected eachothers convictions and goals to get along with eachother for the greater good. But now with all that's been building up throughout Schism they've finally hit that crossroads that's been coming for a long time.
It's not like they were BFF's like Steve Rogers and Tony Stark who beat the crap out of eachother over ideologies. Cyclops and Wolverine were never that tight.
