If his wife is not willing to give him divorce then the only way forward for him is to file contested divorce on the ground of mental harassment, meaning thereby that his wife will contest the divorce case filed by him.
you cannot solve your lover problems . he has to file for divorce even if wife opposes it . contested divorces take some years to be disposed of . had your lover taken step 9 years back when he met you and started living with you as husband and wife by now some decision would have materalised . please note that his wife can file case of adultery against your lover( her husband) if she comes to know of the relationship .
If your husband is sure that he needs a divorce from his first wife, then He needs to file a divorce petition in the Court and contest it. This process usually takes time unlike mutual consent divorce which takes place in an year time. Please Note that even if you have married him in a temple, that will not legalise your marriage with him. Indian Law does not accept this wedding when the first wife is also legally wedded to him. There are chances that an case of adultery, mental harrassment and cruelty be also filed by the wife against him.
dear client as adviced earlier your marriage in temple is of no use. only way left is he should get divorce from his wife first then only he can marry u. no problem he has to file contested divorce

Hi, if first wife did not agree for the divorce it is difficult for him to get divorce and secondly whether your husband has intimated your relationship to her if so he will be in trouble she has to file complaint before the police for adultery and if a person married a women if first wife is there and he did not get divorce he will be on trouble.
