There is a but here. If you believe that prayers are important and obligatory, but do not perform it, then you’re safe and sound, you’re not in shirk area, you are in area of believers.
But if you do not believe that prayers are important and obligatory, and you stopped to pray due to this fact, then that causes you to be a non Muslim.
Do not let your be underestimated by your husband. Show him the true power of women, show him who’s the boss, and that’s how you’ll have whatever you want from your husband. Once you showed him who’s the boss, then you may practice Islam freely without problems.
Try to show him that you’re fearless woman, and by doing like this he’ll get bored of scaring you.
Hopefully that’s a good advice.
