Anthony, 26, and Melinda, 25, say their year-and-a-half marriage is on the brink, and they need help for the sake of their children. Melinda claims Anthony is controlling and abusive, uses drugs and spoils his 4-year-old daughter from a previous relationship -- and she says she worries about their 15-month-old child together. After one recent explosive fight, in which Melinda says that Anthony refused to hand over their child, she moved six hours away and filed for divorce. Anthony denies Melinda's claims but admits he has been physically abusive with her. He claims Melinda has attacked him as well and says he has the video to prove her anger is out of control. Melinda says that he provokes her and then videotapes her and calls it proof of what he says is her out of control behavior. With one child together and another on the way, can this couple learn to peacefully co-parent for the sake of all the kids? Also, Anthony’s ex-girlfriend and mother of his first child makes an impassioned plea to Melinda. Will it make an impact?
