You seem to be going through a tough time with your wife. I understand that you are the care provider for your parents as their son, but you are playing a dual role as a husband also wherein she will expect you to fulfill her expectations from you. You can always negotiate with each other about what you can/cannot do. It is a very fine balance that you will need to maintain between your different roles.
Next Steps
You could see a counselling psychologist if there are more conflicts in your marriage and aim to resolve them amicably.
Health Tips
However, since you mentioned physical violence then I would additionally suggest that she see a psychiatrist and psychologist as this behavior could indicate deeper psychological problems which could be the root cause of the aggressive behaviour.
