Dear Writer, thank you for writing in. It takes courage and strength on your part to have taken this step. I understand you feel unsupported your husband since you have independently been taking care of your all of your family's​ needs. It can hurt to not receive the kind of help and understanding you hope for from your husband.
It is commendable that you are independent financially but yes it perfectly acceptable to want to be treated and respected as an equal in a marriage and want your husband to contribute as much as you. You have mentioned three problems here in your relationship.
One that you don't get any kind support of from your husband, second, he yells and shouts at you and that means communication problems and third, his family because your brother in law drinks and the language is unacceptable.
Can you tell me which you would like to focus on first and we can explore that here. Also could you tell me more about yourself and your husband as individuals. It will help me understand your situation better and help you accordingly. Please do message back to continue or discussion. Regards
