TMZ broke the story ... Weston was arrested Wednesday for felony domestic violence -- the second time in a MONTH -- after another alleged confrontation with his wife.

The source adds, Nikki "just needs some time to get herself together."
As for Weston -- he tells us, "If anything, I would like to say that I’m going to get the help that I require to stabilize myself. I’m going to work my hands to the bone with my marriage and I will never give up on her. I cherish our oaths and vows and honored to be with Nikki forever."
