I'm just not happy with my marriage

He is verbally abusive. When he gets mad, he just yells at me. At times, I feel scared.

Good for you on recognizing your own feelings.  

Often in an abusive relationship, the person who is being abused, starts doubting themselves and starts tolerating, then accepting abuse.

Marriage is based in love and feeling taken care of by the partner.  Feeling scared is the opposite of this.

If you feel ready, tell him the way you feel and pay attention to how willing your husband is to being aware that he yells and that you feel scared.

If he has no idea of what you're talking about, doesn't want to understand what you feel, then slowly take steps to understand within yourself whether or not tolerating your husband's behavior is acceptable to live with on an everyday basis.
