On another note, if there was a no contact order issued as a result of the charge, you can't have contact with him....that means you can't live with him until the case is heard. Simple Battery in a domestic situation is taken very seriously in most states.....violating a no contact order resulting from such a case is taken even more seriously and in my experience is almost always jail time. I suggest one of you move out until the case is heard. If he is in the military, his CO should be able to set him up temporarily in a barracks on base.
As for counseling, if you are looking to go your separate way, then individual counseling should be explored. If you want to stay together, go with marriage counseling. I have recently become a believer that there are no separate issues in a marriage....you need to work through them together. He will also need to realize you are going to work on both of your issues - he is going to need to accept some level of responsibility for problems in the marriage.
