Just because it's your wish to breed them, that doesn't mean your pair is fit for the task.
The male's already violent behaviour towards his mate is a big red flag and chances are high you will have problems if you are to allow your pair to go through with breeding. By doing so, you will run higher chances of the fighting to escalate, of your female and any chicks to be severely injured/dead.
When there is an overall stressful environment, the chances for clutch abandonment are higher too.

This is why it's so important to take the time in getting to know the personalities/temperament of a given pair to later on reach the conclusion if they are good candidates to breed or not.

If the male is truly being violent, then it would really be best to separate your pair (you need to get a spare cage), place your female on another cage with no nesting areas available and take the steps to break her egg laying cycle: https://talkbudgies.com/budgie-breedi...want-eggs.html
