You have already chosen your path, and hopefully you can bear having to pay the price should it come to that.
There are several reasons why a relationship w a therapist can be harmful. Firstly, there is an imbalance; your therapist knows FAR more about you than you know about him (power). Secondly, you are in a vulnerable situation as you need him as a T, which is why you met him in the first place. Thirdly, you don't know if he's telling the truth. How do you actually KNOW his wife is ill? Is he saying that so you will not immediately take action to threaten his licence? If I were you, I'd drive by his house and take a good, long look at his wife to see how she seems.

How will you feel if he breaks off the relationship? What if his wife IS ill and he needs you to help him through her illness and then dumps you? Being dumped by anyone is hard, but being dumped by your therapist is absolute, bottomless hell.
I wish you all the best.
