I don't get all the details here. Of course it should be your husband who does extra work to pay the family's bills ( not "his" bills ). And he should look for the best-paying part-time work he can find, however humble, rather than necessarily taking a chance on his own startup, as they're often no profitable unless he has rare and needed profitable skills.
To take the kids out with himm and then get drunk is highly irresponsible and endangered them, as he presumably was a drunk driver on the way home. That starts to border on abuse.
Your anger and frustration was understandable, except for one thing - however tempting, it is NEVER useful to argue with a drunk. Even if you miraculously won the argument, they wouldn't remember it the next day.
Of course you should be able to expect emotional and "moral" support and encouragement from him, but he doesn't really convincingly sound capable of giving it.
COuld you possible persuade him to join you in mariage counselling ? Maybe, as he insisted on dragging your parents into the argument, they could support you in this extremely reasonable request.
