Is it difficult to get a domestic violence charge dropped?

I've spoken with my wife on three different occasions since I was arrested and she is conflicted on whether or not she wants to recant her statement. She lied to the police initially, upset over the fact that we've been fighting a lot verbally and claimed that I touched her. The mark that she showed them was from an accident involving her and her sister. I'm trying to get her sister to cooperate and tell the police or the judge that the mark was not from me. Is this a difficult charge to make go away?

    Women lie so much to set the guy up or to help him out that the poilce and prosecutors are sick of it and it is hard to know who is telling the truth. If she tells them she lied to set you up she will be arrested.
