I assume you have an attorney. If so, the best person to ask about the status of your case is your attorney. If you don't have an attorney, hire one immediately. If you can't afford an attorney, ask the court to appoint you an attorney. Don't talk about this matter to anyone except your attorney (definitely don't talk about this matter with your family member). If the case is weak, an experienced attorney will be able to fight this case. Best of luck.
I see it happen too often that the victim is the one arrested. Yes the complaining witness does have a say in the disposition of the case. How much of a say is up to the DA. When I have a case with facts like yours, I always get them dismissed. The offer sounds good in terms of the dismissal part. They just want to have you go to a family violence center to be counseled as a victim. I'm concerned about the plea to a companion case, because you haven't mentioned one. I have no idea if this is a good offer. With regards to the other case.

He does have the right to informed of the proposed plea bargain. He could call and let the victim coordinator and tell them what he would like to see happen. In cases of domestic violence the state will offer a dismissal if you attend counseling. If you have more than one case and you plead to one the state can dismiss the other.
