There is trust issues and whenever i want to express myself i am always the one in the wrong scared to express my feelings. My husband always stairs at my stepmom and other woman he went out once and taken off his wedding ring and at events he has flirted with other woman when i confront him he blames it on my low self esteem and my past as I was rejected when I was a baby.

In other words, a manipulative, abusive partner might also be a good provider, for instance, just as a manipulated, abused spouse is unlikely to be lily white, either. Abusive partnerships are by definition unhealthy.
Whether the abuser is a good provider or not, that does not justify their abuse, nor is it sufficient justification for the victim to force themselves to remain married to their abuser. However seriously one may take marriage vows, no vow should require one to sacrifice one's physical, mental, and emotional safety forever-- or even for very long at all.
