The impact of the abuse on Tony's marriage has him fearing the worst.
"If she came home and said 'I just can't get by it, we're done,' I wouldn't blame her," Tony says. "[But] it would kill me. I believe I'd do just about anything to hang onto my children and my wife."
Wendy says at one point, she did consider leaving Tony.
"There came a point in our lives when Tony was so angry and so shameful that I just did not see any light at the end of the tunnel. … And really I came to a point where I realized that I was not going to be able to help him. I couldn't take this away. I had to look in the mirror and say, 'I need to take care of myself and I need to heal.' And it was from that moment really that I was able to come back into his life and realize that I couldn't solve this for him. … And I refused to let this be one more casualty of this abuse."
