Angel married Antonia in 1943. He bought her a religious charm bracelet. Angel soon turned out to be a very cruel husband, driving her to alcoholism and leaving their apartment. A typical Latino Macho, Angel was also somewhat abusive, controlling and jealous, as he was prone to violent outbursts towards other men who took interest in Antonia, such as Clem Feeney. She eventually obtained a court decree for a divorce, and told this to Angel after heavy drinking at the El Dorado Bar. Angel ran after her but lost her as she got into someone's car.
Despite his cruelty, Angel genuinely seemed to have loved Antonia and was distressed when she threatened to divorce him. Furthermore, Angel's brother Hipolito insulted Antonia, prompting a fistfight in which Angel defended Antonia's honor.
